THANKSGIVING FUN WITH BETTY WHITE

 
Whilst searching for something or other on Pinterest, I came  across a photo of the fabulous Betty White.  I never knew she once hosted the Thanksgiving Parade from the 1960s to the early '70s. Who knew? Did you? The Casa du Borghese says: Can we bring back this tradition? Take a look at our beloved Betty in action along with her co-host, actor Lorne Greene. Bring back this funny, fabulous woman to the parade tradition, look at these pictures and see if you don't agree.

  2. Wow, I'd forgotten she and Lorne Greene hosted the parade. Does THAT bring back memories. Yes, she'd be wonderful to bring back.

    1. RAMEN, bro! the philly parade has become more "here's your favorite ABC tv stars!" as opposed to local talent/local bands.

    2. I was but a very wee one then, but even since I remember the parade its changed. Not much showing, but more talking. Anne Marie- I have only seen it on tv a few times. My family always seems to have on the New York parade.

  7. She certainly looks like she's having fun in these photos. And Lorne Greene too! (I only know him from Bonanza and Battlestar Galactica, and I don't recall him smiling much in those shows).

    1. Would you mind refraining from telling us about Lorne's dirty side. Its like you have first hand knowledge?

  11. I'd love to see Betty White back as a host. I had forgotten about that as well. I also miss Lorne Greene. Loved him in Bonanza and Battlestar Galactica.

  12. The woman is a National Treasure, that's for sure. She's smart, she's funny, she can be very irreverent. And she's managed to keep working when other's have faded - which speaks to her level of talent, and a work ethic that producers and directors adore. Hugs to you, Mistress!

  13. yes, we all loved betty, but she's 107 now.

    she'll spot one of those balloons bearing down on 6th avenue
    and announce, "oh my, here comes that dear kate smith!
    maybe she'll sing 'god bless america' for us?"

  18. She doesn't need to host every year, maybe just one year again for good times!
