Queen Bettie: Farm Life

Last year we celebrated Beach Babe Bettie, so you might think a separate post about Bikini Babe Bettie is redundant. Well, you would be wrong. Ever the sex symbol, Bettie also wore bikinis when she wasn’t at the beach. For example, take these shots of her down by the farm in her classic bikini and heels outfit. Yes, Bettie once played farmhand. Black heels with a bikini might seem odd for a hard day of laboring on the farm, but Bettie was a pro when it came to working in pumps, no matter the setting.

Effortlessly operating heavy machinery in heels? No problem, she’s got that covered. Heck, compared to her arduous bondage work, farming is a breeze.

I believe all of these photos were taken at a farm in New Jersey by Bettie’s friend, photographer Arthur Fellig, aka Weegee. His work with Bettie certainly makes farm life look far more enticing than I ever thought it could be.

If these photos are making you hum a little tune, you are not alone. I think it goes like this…

Farmer John, I’m in love with your daughter
Yeah the one, with the champagne eyes
I love the way she walks, I love the way she talks
I love the way she wiggles, she wiggles when she walks
Farmer John, I’m in love with your daughter. oh
Yeah the one, with the champagne eyes

Neil Young & Crazy Horse, “Farmer John”

Yup, that’s it. Thanks, Uncle Neil!

Sometimes Bettie even slipped into something a little fancier for hangin’ at the farm, just because she could.

Pumping the pump in pumps, as it were. I’ll see myself out.
