My Dear Betty [Healy],
Can't tell you how sorry I am to hear of the rotten deal you received from Thomas, am certainly surprised at him, FRONTING such a cheap lousey racket - especially being an old performer himself. Is'nt it awful - what next. Can imagine the shock & disappointment it must have been to you, after all the sincere hard work you put into it plus all the enthusiasm. I can't get over it, I think its disgraceful && low down - an afraid to think what would have happened if they had pulled this on Ted instead of you - he would have wrecked the joint!
Inasmuch as you recorded a complete program & they all agreed they liked it, I would definitely demand that they give that recording back to you or personally see that they destroy it, to prevent them for ever using it. If they refuse, get a Court Order, restraining any attempt to Broadcast without your permission.
Eda is wondering if your Friend from New York is the lady who used to be at NANCY'S in Hollywood? she does'nt remember buying any cosmetics in N.Y. as she always stocked up here before leaving for Europe. Its nice your Friend is living near you & you both have so much in common - thats wonderful.
Who on earth is this guy that has Marilyn Monroe's car & never has money for gas? sounds fantastic!
I was amazed to hear how valuable that property became (around your old ranch) I did'nt know when I visited there that it was selling so cheap - wish you had told me about it.
That was nice of your Uncle to give you all that building material - can imagine what a big job it was to bring it back from Bakersfield - do'nt know how you managed to load it all.
Glad you are feeling OK Betty, you were sensible to get rid of that weight. I am taking a massage twice a week & it seems to be helping me quite a bit & am able to get around more freely.
Well, think thats all for now. Eda joins in all the best to Wayne & self. she too was sorry to hear about your unfortunate experience.
Bye now & God Bless.
