blossoms in the dust
with Walter Pigeon.
I saw him in Miami  Bch.






Gregory Peck
and
Garson


She was
 gorgeous.


For a decade now, the Forked Lightning Ranch 
that the Best Actress
Oscar winner (with six other nominations)
 enjoyed for many years
with husband Col. Elijah E. “Buddy” Fogelson (a Nebraska-born, 
Texas-based oilman-cum-New Mexico cattleman),
 has been a destination for the curious and the devoted fans..




Greer Garson, actress: born Co Down, 
Northern Ireland 29 September 1903;
married 1933 Edward A. Snelson 
marriage dissolved 1937), 
1943 Richard Ney ( son in mrs Minniver)
(marriage dissolved 1947), 
1949 Elijah "Buddy" Fogelson (died 1987);
died Dallas, Texas 6 April 1996.
He was an oil Man and Greer loved to ride horses.



Here's the ranch,
 I think Jane Fonda bought it.

Marie Antoinette's house is in Maine 2011

MARIE at age of sixteen a Queen

Pretty little Lady..
MARIE had four Children
Two died of tuberculosis
The Two children left,
Boy died in Prison at the hands of
THE FRENCH RAT Robespierre. If you are ever called
Robespierre it is not a complement!
The ten year old Charles (The Dauphin) his last cries
were for his Mother. The Doctor Pellelan Cut his heart out
and kept it on his Mantel. SOME DOCTOR!!!!
It gets worse..
Here is a lady who lost her head over a necklace.
 Portrait by Joseph Ducreux
This is the House built for Marie.
In Maine.
She would not leave her Children.

**************Marie Antoinette ....The Last French Queen
History has it that Captain Stephen Clough (or Capt. Nathan Cloud)
 Owned a sloop called The Sally.
(Sally was his Daughters name.) Think I'll paint the BRiG.









The Sally was impounded
by the French. He was trying to
 rescue her And had built a house
for her in Wiscasset Maine. The ship was loaded with her cats and possessions.
Marie would not go and leave her Son. At that time other than Boston,
Wiscasset was the hub of 19'th century trade.
The house was moved to Edgecomb Maine. It still stands today.
This is the explanation why so many RARE antiques have been found in Maine over generations.THE MAINE COON CAT was a result from the beautiful
Persian and Angora cats that jumped off the ship.



Maine coon cat


The only one to survive the Reign of Terror,
was the Daughter Therese. She was released and sent
to Vienna after years of imprisonment. She was then
Madame la Dauphine Married and Died of pneumonia 1851.
Fifty eight years to the date of anniversary of her Mothers execution.
Most the images were from the encyclopedia and
Maine Historical society The Furniture of Marie's is in
the Knox Mansion, in Thomaston, Maine. Worth a visit,
also a desk a gift from George Washington.

*******************Marie Antoinette ....
The Last French Queen
History has it that Captain Stephen
Clough (or Capt. Nathan Cloud) owned a sloop called The Sally
That was his daughter’s name. 
The Sally was impounded by the French.
 He was trying to rescue her (Marie)
 and had built a house for her in Wiscasset, Maine.
The ship was loaded with her cats and possessions. 
Marie would not go and leave her son at that time other than
Boston. Wiscasset was the hub of 19'th century trade. 
This is a Maine Coon Cat


This is the
Angora
cat like
Marie had.












Also the Persian cat below. I think they are pretty,
but I am more into dogs.













THE MAINE COON CAT 
was a result from the beautiful Persian
 and Angora cats off the ship.
The house was moved to Edgecombe, Maine.
 It still stands today. This is the explanation why
