It was Gov. Brown from California that liked Linda Ronstadt. KY Governor John Y. Brown, Jr. was married to his own celebrity, Phyllis George Brown, who was a former Miss America.

Here's an interesting trivial fact.



I'm sure everyone is familiar with The Judds from Kentucky, the singers Naomi & Wyonna and also Ashley the actress. The singing duo "The Judds" did not make it big until the early 80's. Naomi had her share of hard times in the 70's and once lived in the community of "Morrill" at the top of "Big Hill" outside of Berea, Ky where 3 counties meet. It is a rural, rugged, yet beautiful area just outside the Daniel Boone National Forest. They lived in a two-story house called "Chanticleer" that they rented for $100 dollars a month. It was there that Wyonna learned to play guitar and the Judds began singing.

There is a side road very near Morrill called "Himan's Fork Road". It runs down into a beautiful "holler" where a stream flows called "Clear Creek." This is where my father grew up and where his father and grandfather lived for most of their lives. My grandfather farmed, operated a sawmill and drove a school bus. His farm was only about two miles down the road from where the Judds lived in the 70's. They were, in effect, neighbors. I don't think they knew each other, but I'm fairly certain their paths may have crossed at one time or another. As a young boy, I would visit my grandfather's hilly little farm and play in the barn, climb the hills, wade the creek and explore the countryside.

Little did I know at the time, that just up the road were a poor struggling mother and two young girls, roughly my age that would all go on to be famous.



Note: (you can read a very interesting excerpt about Naomi's early days in an excerpt from her book "Love Can Build A Bridge" which can be found on Google Books)

Caddy's niece (Billie's daughter), Ashley Shelton, was crowned the new Queen of the Kentucky Celebration last night. Frankie said they have been crowning Queens for the past 20 years. Congrats, Ashley!!

Smitty...Nice story and I didn't know that. If you ever get down this way, I'll show you where the Judds, now live. I have met Wynonna riding her Harley on this road.

Another RARE photo!



This photo was taken at the Junior League Horse Show in Lexington, Ky. It is of one of the winners of one of the Walking Horse classes; way back when the show offered TWH classes. No other information was given on this photo and I've been unable to figure out just who the horse and rider are. I am guessing this was taken in the 1950s, but I could be wrong.

Old Junior League Photos

One of the oldest and most prestigious Saddlebred shows in the nation, the Junior League Horse Show is one of the three crowns of the "triple crown" of the Saddlebred world; the other two being the American Royal in Kansas City and the World Championship in Louisville. The Junior League in Lexington, Ky was founded in 1924 by ten women with a goal of improving the community. Their greatest accomplishment has been the horse show, which was first held in 1937 and has funded many worthwhile causes in the community over the years. At one time, this show offered TWH classes and Hunter/Jumper events as well as ASB classes, but those days are long gone. Here are some nostalgic photos from the always stylish and entertaining Junior League Horse Show.

S69,

What years would that have been? I am trying to figure out just exactly when the Jr. League quit offering TWH classes.

Amie Boyd Marks, may know the answer. She still attends every year, and I'll ask her.
