Renee Ashley Baker Buick 1

(above, Renee Ashley Baker, sitting atop car dressed very “fashionably and beautifully” wearing suede shoes, and a brown “Harris Tweed” Coat with a Velvet Collar.)

“HIS” name was Mr. Ashley and he is the only father that I, Renee Ashley Baker, will ever know. (Ashley is my father’s last name–not Moore). Anyway, Mr. Ashley (my father) served in the U.S. Army (in Korea) and my father (Mr. Ashley) was also a MASON. (I do not know what “degree” but I suspect it was pretty high). Mr. Ashley (my father) smoked a pipe and drank Budweiser (the St. Louis “King of Beers”) and drank Manechevitz Wine (because, he liked Jews and liked Kosher I guess). And– my father Mr. Ashley (who I called “My Daddy”) smoked–he smoked “cigars” and he smoked “a pipe” and I can remember as a little girl going places with My Father–Mr. Ashley– such as the haberdashery where he’d pick up his Stetson hats, to his “tailor” where he’d pick up his suits and I can remember going with “Daddy” to the “tobacco shop”. (These are things that all little girls remember doing with their “Daddy”).

Mr. Ashley (My Father) had a large family (all brothers and one sister) and all the brothers were MASONS. My Father’s Father –my grandfather (Mr. Ashley)– owned land in a southern state and when that land was sold all of my Uncles (my father’s brothers) bought houses in the late 1950’s in the “wealthy” suburb of St. Louis (called Kinloch). In fact, my Mother (Lady Erma/Irma Ashley) and my father (Mr. Ashley) had also been planning to buy a house in Kinloch (they’d bought new furniture from Stix Baer & Fuller to go in the new “Kinloch” house); But, that, is another story….the house on Ashley Lane (from Miracle on 34th Street…).

I think I said that My Father’s Mother was of Welsh decent (My Mother told me I was of “Welsh decent” but I had been saying that my Father’s Mother was from the “Isle of Harris”….(Who knows? A genealogy will have to be done on my family…The Ashleys). My Father (Mr. Ashley) golfed at the golf course in St. Louis Missouri in the 1960’s (My Father’s–Mr. Ashley’s– golf bag stood in our house in St. Louis, where, on the walls, hung in picture frames were My Father –Mr. Ashley’s– “U.S. Army Good Service Medals” and My Father’s –Mr. Ashley’s– “Letter of Good Military Service” that was signed by President John Fitzgerald Kennedy…Which, I have a copy of, by the way….).

My Father–Mr. Ashley–(I’ve been told)–spoiled me and thought of me as HIS little Princess. (My Father–Mr. Ashley–had my Mother–Erma/Irma– dress me like a Princess in expensive shoes and pretty (expensive) dresses that came from the department stores Famous Barr and Stix Baer & Fuller. Pictured above, is me Renee Ashley Baker, sitting atop My Father’s (Mr. Ashley’s) car; (Yes, My Father–Mr. Ashley–was a BUICK MAN). So, to ALL you “retired soldiers” (Veterans) who served in the Military like Mr. Ashley –my Father–I say, HAPPY VETERAN’S DAY!

TRIVIA QUESTION: What Movie (that contains the name of a U.S. President in it’s title) features “prominently” the same model car –the BUICK–that I’m sitting on above?

Sgt Jesse Knott

(above Staff Sergeant Jesse Knott with Hawk Company Hero “Koshka”; Koshka was named “ASPCA Cat of the Year” in 2013)

Dear Sgt Knott:
I read your story in the Sunday “USA Weekend”. Of course, I wish you success in everything you do (I am sure you are enjoying “Isotope and Radio Active”).
I think your plans to “volunteer” at the V.A.Hospital are great. Years ago, I, Renee Ashley Baker, worked briefly at a V.A. Hospital. I got promoted in just 3 months from a GS-2 to a GS-3 (I was a “clerk typist”).
I’d like to suggest to you an “online university” that you could attend (via computer) for two years; then, after two years you’d be ready to obtain your Bachelor’s Degree at a traditional college.
I am writing this “open letter” hoping that two of my St. Louis companies (Nestle Purina and Gateway Computers) will give you a “scholarship” and a “computer and printer set up” to help you with your “online studies”.
Once Again Best Wishes,
Signed
Renee Ashley Baker

WHAT ARE THEY FIGHTING FOR?

Let’s NOT forget the 25th Anniversary of the Fall of the Berlin Wall….

MEET THE BIONIC MAN….
Amazing new “smart” prosthetic devices are changing the lives amputees.
When Luke Skywalker donned a cybernetic hand in “The Empire Strikes Back” to replace the limb he’d lost in a duel with Darth Vader, fully functional prostheses seemed squarely in the realm of science fiction.

Genium Otto Block Leg medical breakthrough

(above, The Bionic Man wearing The Genium–a prosthetic leg that has a “microprocessor controlled knee”–made by German manufacturer Otto Block). In the past few years, though, prosthetic technology has progressed far beyond simple “stick and hook” designs. The newest prostheses, both commercial and experimental closely mimic natural limbs in function and responsiveness and…they are proving their worth in everyday tasks, combat missions, even Olympic races. By detecting the user’s intent (and then adjusting accordingly) the most sophisticated replacement limbs can make almost as many complex movements as their wearers can imagine. “Everything is intuitive” says Levi Hargrove, director of the Neural Engineering for Prosthetics and Orthotics Laboratory at the Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago. “Patients are able to walk around normally as if they’re using their own legs”).

SOF K9 Memorial

(above, sculpture of a life-size Bronze Belgian Malinois that was designed by Lena Toritch for the SOF/Special Operations Forces “K9 Memorial Museum”. The statue stands at the Airborne and Special Operations Museum in Fayetteville, N.C.;near Fort Bragg).
The U.S. Armed Forces officially began using dogs in World War II. Today, over 2,000 working dogs serve in U.S. military operations around the globe with about 600 in combat zones. Most are Belgian Malinois or Dutch or German shepherds. (In 2009, a Belgian Malinois named Cairo, received “official recognition” for participating in the raid that killed Osama bin Laden)….But, even among these exceptional dogs (who can run at speeds of 35 mph and can have up to a 270-degree field of vision) only a small percentage make the “final cut” for SOF after six to 12 months of military training.

FOR    IRELAND….

              Back in the mid- 1980’s  I was planning  some type of production–I can’t remember now what it was –probably a video or a “short short film”–and I ran an ad in the Denver newspaper for actors.   So –this young man answers my ad.   He  showed up at my house–he was blonde,  blue eyed and wearing his hair like the lead singer from the English rock band  “A Flock of Seagulls”.   (Who at the time were very ‘hot’ ).    I asked this young  ‘actor’   if he’d ever acted in anything before–he was honest–and told me he hadn’t but that  he had just come from an audition with a Director he had never heard of.   Some guy,  he said,  who had produced a movie in Denver called “The Return of the Secaucus Seven”.   So–that was my introduction to the wonderful John Sayles–who later–directed one of my favorite movies “The Secret of Roan Innish”.  And now–this morning– I see on TV one of my new ‘favorite’ actors talking about another film set in Ireland–with a mystical, magical  story line—another “Silkie” story from the Emerald Isle.    So–SHOUT OUT to Colin Farrell –your new movie “Ondine”   looked –shall I say–“enchanting”?….               (I, Renee Ashley Baker, am  considering writing Colin Farrell into my motion picture story line.  A motion picture that I might have produced–if–it is produced at Paramount, 20th Century or The Weinstein Company.  The title?    “The Story of  ABLE “.    Casting?  How about Colin Farrell and Charlize Theron?….)

QUIZ: 

GUESS   WHO  HAS  KNOWN  RENEE  ASHLEY  BAKER’S  FAMILY  SINCE  RENEE ASHLEY  BAKER  WAS  AN   INFANT? 

 

 

 (scroll down for answer)

 

 

BACK STORY:    The story, as it was told to me, goes as follows:  Tina Turner and her sister were at a St. Louis night club one night (Tina’s sister long had had aspirations of being a singer).  Anyway, the crowd in the night club began clammoring for Tina’s sister to ‘get up on the stage and sing’.  She WOULDN’T.    So–Tina stood up and said, “I’ll sing”.    Tina then  jumped up on the stage and began singing.    IKE was in the audience….           Soon after — Ike got a record contract with ‘Sun Records’ and the rest, as they say, is history….

BACK STORY TO THE BACK STORY:  Years later, in the early 1980’s  I, Renee Ashley Baker, did a face to face INTERVIEW with Tina  Turner at the old ‘Turn of the Century’ night club (in southeast Denver).    REMEMBER  TINA?    You offered me a safety pin when I tore the ___that I was wearing.  (I had taken my camera to ‘get some photos’ of  Tina.    I was doing my ‘squat down thing’–when — well–  needless to say — I DON’T do that  squat down thing  anymore!      I now stand to take all photos)…. Anyway, to continue —  TINA TURNER  was a ‘teenager’ in St. Louis when my family (my mother and my father)  knew her.    TINA’S   sister never became a singer–she instead went on to take a job with the U.S. Military  (Department of Defense) –the  aerospace industry–in California.    TINA  TURNER,  as we all know—is still beltin em out for  CAPITOL  EMI records and is still living in the  ‘south of France’  with her German boyfriend/producer. . . .

and now….

For My Father–Mr. Ashley– “Tomorrow  Will  Arrive. . . .”

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).

Travel: Jet Set or Jet Blue (Pampering, Planning, and Photographing)

December 2, 2009

globetrotter-luggage

Renee Ashley’s Red ‘Globetrotter’ Travel Case

PAMPERING:
It is inevitable that you’ll get stuck in an airport somewhere, sometime, so why not relax while you’re waiting?

Get Pampered: At Detroit Metro Airport, you can get a facial, a massage, and a shower in McNamara terminal.

Listen to Chopin: Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport has a pianist to serenade irritable would-be passengers.

Tee Off: At Dallas/Ft. Worth International Airport, you can play 36 holes of golf on airport property–if you’ve got the time.

Up Your Culture Quotient: Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport has spent millions on its world-class art collection.

Sample the Chardonnay: At Baltimore/Washington International, a wine bar serves flights of wine during delays.

PLANNING:
Fly Early In The Day. At airports scheduled to capacity, any delay in the morning means there will be at least that much of delay for every flight thereafter.

Depart A Day In Advance. For crucial trips, such as a business meeting or a wedding.

Check the Delay Statistic For your flight: For how often that flight is more than 15 minutes late on a scale of 1 to 9 (the lower the number, the more often it’s late)–before you book your tickets. Airlines are required by law to give you the stat if you ask for it: many post it on their websites. If the number is 5 or below and time is of the essence, consider another flight.

Sign Up for the registered traveler program. At (tsa.gov/approach/rt/travelers.shtm)to take some of the pain out of the preflight experience. Travelers who pass a voluntary background check can use special lanes to whisk through security at nearly 20 U.S. airports, including in Denver, Oakland, Orlando, and San Francisco.

Make A Call– If you get to the gate and the airline says you’ve lost your seat: Contact the ‘Coalition for an Airline Passangers’ Bill of Rights’ at 877-359-3776. Kate Hanni, the group’s founder, says stranded passengers have told her that seats were suddenly found for them when they called CAPBOR from the airport and let airline personnel know they’d done so. If your flight is canceled, the group’s volunteer staff will help you book hotels, research your flight status, offer alternative routes, help with car rental, and relay weather information.

Understand Your Options: When you’re stuck on the ground for hours after boarding, there’s a reason. “If the airlines lock the doors, the don’t have to provide refunds, credits, lodgling, and food expenses” says Paul Hudson, executive director of the Aviation Consumer Action Project. You can circulate a petition demanding to be let off the plane and take it to the cockpit. An airline can’t hold people against their will unless there is a safety reason, and the Captain has the authority to let people off. If the situation worsens, call the police or a local TV or radio station from your cell phone. CAPBOR hotline volunteers can also put you in touch with the media.

Join The Fight: To enact an Airline Passengers’ Bill of Rights federal legislation that would mandate, among other things. that passengers be allowed to deplane when they are held on the tarmac for more than three hours as well as require airlines to provide delayed passengers with food, water, sanitary facilities, and medical attention. Know, however, that the major U.S. carriers are dead set against the bill, arguing that cockpit crews should make these calls.
