  • Local to appear on reality TV show

    Georgia is a long way to go for a bra fitting, especially if you’re a goat.

    But that’s exactly where Betty, an “extremely well-endowed” Myotonic goat, traveled to get a little special attention from Cynthia and Molly of Lifetime’s reality show “Double Divas.”

    The premise of the show is that the owners design and create custom lingerie, especially bras, for clients with special needs. Betty certainly has special needs.

    I celebrated twenty-two years of marriage last weekend.  I say “I” instead of “we” because hubby was seven thousand miles away, celebrating independently. 

    I had been anxiously looking forward to this particular anniversary because it fell on a Saturday, the same as our wedding.  My plan was to relive the day moment-by-moment, and I was ridiculously excited about it. But what can I say?  I’m a girl.
