Okay folks, you asked for it! Actually you didn't but I'm going to give it to you anyway. Here is Ron's Take on the Oscar Fashions on the red carpet last night.
Cruella deVille has arrived! (aka Sharon Stone)
|The Beginning - 1942 - the First Born with Pop and Mom|
|My Pop at 18 years old - a Hank Williams wannabe|
The body language says it all in this picture of me and my two brothers with Pop
My youngest brother John is on the far left and obviously the light of my father's eye.
My poor second brother is literally 'in the middle' and overlooked. I'm on the far right with my hand on my father's shoulder but he is obvious to my reaching out to him. Pictures say so much.
|Father and son 1-976 - again check out the body language|
by this time his dog 'Pepper' was the light of his life
Me, Mom and Pop 1982 - again check out the body language
I'm leaning in towards him but my Mom touches my leg lest I get too close to him
|My Pop at 18 years old - yes, I do look like him|
|The "new car" - a GMC pickup truck|
Me not wanting my brother to take my picture of me in the back of the pickup truck. Pop made sure to drive through Downingtown so my friends could see me in the back of the truck. He got a big kick out of this.
Me trying to make light of my humiliation. Sorry about the sissyness. I hadn't outgrown it at this point in my life.
|Me and my friend Jim Harris on the rifle range at Ft. Meade, Maryland 1962|
My Pop at his most handsome - a real "Ladies' Man"
Tall (6'5") blonde, blue eyes, muscular, 'big', and could charm the pants off any woman
My Pop in his 70's - still not a gray hair in his head
Still smoking which would eventually kill him
|Pop and me when he liked me - 1942|
