I’ve never had a week go by faster. Betty’s on a plane, already, returning to New York, & so, another month without her begins.

Helen Boyd

is the author of My Husband Betty and She's Not the Man I Married.


  1. Did Betty bring cat hair to spread around your temporary living space? Cat and dog hair always makes a place seem more like home!


  2. I’m sorry, Helen. Feh indeed. Separation is so difficult. But the month will be over before you know it, and then you and the boys will be back home with Betty and Aurora.

    Besides, doesn’t cold weather make time go faster? I could swear I heard that somewhere.


  3. What a novel concept. Take the cats on sabbatical. I wonder if you can include them in contract talks with the university?

    Anyone who takes their cats along on teaching duties has to be a pretty impressive character. Maybe you should take the kitty along to your lectures?
