The Gables, Clark and Carole

Hi All,
Some of you know that I have collected on Carole Lombard since I have been 20 yrs old.  Hmmmmm, that makes it around 36 yrs I have been collecting and reading about her.  She was such a terrific gal.  She could walk in to today's world and not miss a beat.  Her life tragically ended in 1942, in a plane crash.  She was returning to her husband, Clark Gable.  She had been selling war bond in her hometown of Ft. Wayne, IN.  She was only 33.  A bright spirit was lost that day.
March 29, 1939 was the day Gable and Lombard were married, so tomorrow would have been their 74th!

 Another shot
 Love this one
 The diamond and ruby clips she is wearing on her hat and neckline, were a gift from Gable.  She was wearing them at her death.  Gable wore a chip of one of the pieces found in the wreckage, around his neck
 The beautiful ranch, Encino.  I was lucky enough to see it from the end of the drive
 One of my favorites from the ranch
 Too cute!
 Another favorite, on the tailgate of their woody wagon, used for hunting trips
Something enticed me to read this book, when I was 20.  I have been hooked on Carole, ever since!
 
Happy Easter to all.

This and That

Hi All,
I always enjoy my trips with my daughter.  This time we rode the train to Chicago for a few days.  Eat, shop, walk, rest, do it again the next day!  Here are a few pics of our trip :)
 The flower show at Macy's(the old Marshal Fields on State St)
 Dinner at the Lux Bar
 Lunch at The Walnut Room, in Marshall Fields on State
 View of Lake Michigan, from our room
 The Drake Hotel, where we stayed.  Very old and beautiful
And Cocoa!  I bought this for our camper and realized it was too big for the space, I had planned.  Look who decided to make it a new dog bed!  Guess it will stay here :)
Hope you all have a great rest of the week!
