Happy 90th, Betty — and Merci

Without my friend Betty in Corpus Christi, you would never have had the Chic & Slim books. A number of individuals were very supportive of the Chic & Slim effort, but no one more than Betty.

This week, as friends and family celebrate her 90th birthday, I want to say an official Chic & Slim Joyeux Anniversaire & Merci. So many women in so many countries are chicer and slimmer — and happier, as a result of her help and support when the first two books were being written.

In the photo above you see my riviera view of the bay that I saw when I glanced up from my computer or notebook. Many of the books' chapters were written when I was seated in those chaise longue in the cabana shade. Or in one of those chairs on the deck. It is the view Betty is seeing when she looks out during her birthday celebrations.

Happy Birthday, Betty, and Merci ! — Anne Barone
