FROM:  Renee Ashley Baker

I, RENEE ASHLEY BAKER,  will not be doing any motion picture projects with Talia Shire, Carmine Coppola, Sophia Coppola, Francis Ford Coppola, nor Nicolas Cage.   Having said that–I will now tell you a story—as follows:  

YEARS AGO, I came to meet someone (a WOMAN) who talked incessantly about a very famous person (A  HISTORICAL FIGURE) whom she said she felt a strong “connection” to.    She–“this WOMAN”– talked also about herself and about how she was “connected to”   (related to)  a very famouos showbusiness family (The Coppolas).    This WOMAN continued to talk telling me something even more astonishing:  That she — and her children–had been involved in a landmark State Supreme Court Case in a state located in the southern part of the United States.    A court case  that involved what they used to  call “race relations”.    A  court case that would –even now–astonish the world.   I do NOT know whether this WOMAN  actually is a relative of the Coppola family–I do believe (after recently watching “Godfather I”  and  “Godfather III”  on television)  that Sophia Coppola should portray “this WOMAN”  in a motion picture.    That Sophia Coppola should also write and direct this motion picture.    Although I wish to have NO  involvement with the project–Sophia  Coppola should title the motion picture “HOW THE  HUMMINGBIRD FLIES”. . . . 

  Strange as it seems 

  Frozen in time 

  Both a yes and a no

  Both the truth and a lie

  Strange as it seems

  An astonishment to the eyes 

  Frozen in mid-air 

 Is how the Hummingbird flies….

About Renee Ashley Baker’s Mother (plus “Good-bye Lynn Redgrave”)

May 3, 2010

 

pictured :  Renee Ashley Baker’s  mother (Mrs. Ashley) wearing her ‘real’ diamond pendant and ‘real’  yellow gold rings, earrings and watch  (also pictured are  Mrs. Ashley’s  crystal  from Germany  and  her Hummel from Germany ….

 re: MOTHER’S DAY 

When I, Renee Ashley Baker,  was a little girl my mother Mrs. Ashley  (pictured above) would make me FRENCH TOAST for breakfast. 

 When I was a girl growning up my mother had, in her mini mansion (in St. Louis ) various pets.   Such as:  a canary, a parakeet, gold fish in a large acquarium, and several dogs and puppies.  (In fact–during the mid-1960’s one of my mother’s pets  was a pure bred Beagle that looked just like the one President Lyndon Johnson had in the White House at the time. Unfortunately he– the  Beagle — met the fate of  President Clinton’s “Buddy”)…

For Mothers’  Day —  I am going to offer a contest.  A  free poster of ‘YOUR  MOTHER’ –from PosterBrain–to anyone who can name any one of my mother’s pets. (You can make your guess  before ,  on,  or  until the following week after,  Mother’s Day).
