Well, I know I've been just awful about keeping this community up, but hey, Speech is a drainer of time. Excuses, excuses, I know.
Now, I redid the layout (frankly because it was product of one of my first IrfanView uses), and a nicer one will be on the way, when I can find some good SB pictures (:: coughHINTHINTcough :: ).
My main question at the end of SB has always been "What happened to Betty?". I really wonder if she did go and marry Artie, or if she decided to go her own way, or if she even realised that Joe loved her (and I think he did) or if she stayed angry at his memory. Mostly thought, I wonder if she ever figured out what happened (Listen to Maren talk about fictional characters like real people. Ain't it grand?).
I have to say that the Betty/Joe reletionship fascinates me. They are just such a cool couple, with all their witty dialouge, and hard obstacles. I wonder if in another time, another place, or even without Norma what would have happened between them.
In my less cynical moods I say "They would go back to Ohio and live happily ever after!", and in my more cynical moods I think "They would have been dysfunctional and would have divorced because Joe wouldn't bend his ways!".
