While a trip back to St. Olaf is out of the question, Betty White isn't letting a quarantine deter her plans for a beautiful day.
Betty White, one of America's beloved actresses, will turn 99 years old on Sunday, January 17. And she'll spend the day, similar to other days, quietly enjoying life in her coastal home in northern California.
The television legend sat down with Entertainment Tonight and brought up the subject of her birthday. White continues to safely quarantine herself and enjoys reading the newspaper, cover-to-cover, and completing crossword puzzles each day.
"You probably didn't ask, but I’ll tell you anyway," White teased. "What am I doing for my birthday? Running a mile each morning has been curtailed by COVID, so I am working on getting The Pet Set re-released, and feeding the two ducks who come to visit me every day," says White.
The Pet Set was Betty White's show from the 1970s which featured television and movie stars along with their pets. The show combined all of White's favorites: friends, comedy, and animals.
Earlier this year, White spoke with Closer Weekly Magazine and mentioned she was in good health amid the pandemic. She shared her advice to the world, "Slow down and enjoy what you have." We can all take this wise advice to heart.
Betty White started acting in the 1940s as "girl Friday" on Hollywood on Television. White then went on to star with her relatable and comedic flare on several shows including The Mary Tyler Moore Show and Golden Girls.
