Betty Ratzlaff hits the big 80

I wrote about Betty Ratzlaff a month or two ago. She taught many of us Papiamentu back in the day, and created a English Papiamentu / Papiamentu English dictionary that is widely used here.

This is bird month here on Bonaire, with a number of special lectures and activities. Well, a little birdie just told me that Wednesday, April 25 is Betty's 80th birthday.

So if any of you who know her, or have enjoyed her dictionary want to send her a greeting, her email is bbhenriquezATshawDOTca Hopefully you can translate that into her real email address. Just don't want some spam bot to pick up on it. :)
