NYC - Day 3 - Part 2

Our friend Billy Faier was himself visting Woodstock from his home in Marathon, TX, when we stopped in. He was staying with an old friend, Betty Ballentine. Betty is now about 90 years old, and come to find out, a very well known publisher of science fiction books. She and her husband formed Ballentine books, the publisher of the first authorized version of Lord of the Rings, endorsed by J.R.R. Tolkein himself. Betty was very kind and even fixed us a spur of the moment lunch.

We enjoyed her beautiful home. Here are a few pictures.

Of course Andy and Billy were able to squeeze in some great music!

Nikki as we all know and love her (laughing).

The yard ornaments were so picturesque, considering Betty's publishing history.

Thanks Betty for allowing us to crash your home!
