      :wink_smile:

      I have two knowledgeable sources who confirmed the separation between Maureen and Carolyn.:sad_smile:

      The duo seemed, yet, well to balance.

      Hopefully, now, that Maureen found serenity in her family ...

      There are new pictures of her today on the Irish site for restitution of the cottage from the Quiet Man. Apparently they have done a lot to the RR station already? I just learned about this today. Will have to get involved I suppose...always do, LOL. KPKEITH

      I know Keith. I have seen the White O Morn pages pop up. That is why I checked it out and found new pics of Maureen just about 6 hours old and thought yall would want to see them. I also saw a lot of things like "Thanks to White O Morn USA"! Sue didn't think Patrick's site was being very good to "ours"....here I am a week and I am making myself an "our" already, LOL. Anyway, I got her to the site,and she saw the pics of Maureen that I had mentioned yesterday. So, I LIKED the site all over Facebook....yours...I mean OURS yesterday.
      Since I don't think I have talked to Colorado Bob yet, Sue thought I should PM him. I have done a ton of high dollar fund raising and would like to help. There were only four members shown on your site, but I clicked that I would like to be a member.....nothing popped up to fill in, and I can't find that I am one. Might want to fix that since there are only about fifty some odd LIKES out of the whole JWMB after what, NINE years? Just suggestions. I really am good at things like this and really do want to be a working part of our effort. Told Sue I did not want to step on toes....I think that is why she said I should contact Colorado Bob.
      Did you see my pics on my albums and read the text? My posts on Sinatra were from direct involvement, LOL. Too bad Gibbons wasn't a Western Fan,or I would have met so many I could have used for my book. I was in The Springs around 1975. Get some sleep, Kiddo, Keith...the other one.

      Hey, KP, I think I got our/your wires a little crossed. This forum has been here, in its generally present form, for almost 10 years. However, our presence on Facebook (JWMB and White O'Morn Foundation USA) are much less than that. The WO'MFUSA is just on FB for a couple of months, JWMB longer, but sadly we have not really given it the attention we should . . . just too much to do!

      We sure are enjoying your interesting posts, and the text that goes with the pics in your album. For the rest of you, if you haven't had a chance, you should check out Hawkswill's photo albums!

      If I didn't know any better, I might think you two Keiths were talking to yourselves. :wink_smile:

      Yes us two Keith's are now ganging up
      so just in case no one is listening to us,
      we can at least talk to one another!

      Keith, one of the reasons there has not been
      an influx of JWMB members joining us on the White O'Morn
      project, is mainly due to the fact that,
      whilst there are many Duke fans out there
      not many, it would appear, are so passionate about The Quiet Man.
      After all many Duke fans are maybe just fans of his westerns etc.
      I have asked a few times, alas to no avail, for more members to join us.

      However Colorado Bob, Chester and myself
      have spent many hours off the scenes with many emails
      relating to the project, and it is an ongoing thing.
      Best Wishes

      After having talked to Sue, I realize how much work yall have done. I read back where everyone was afraid the project would have to be dropped. That is why I thought my post on Maureen would get yall scrambling to see what Patrick's might be saying.
      I am looking down the road here. It is MUCH easier to get outside backer money if your project has tons of LIKES AND members. I have spoken to one here already and asked him to LIKE White of Morn and ask all of his buddies to do the same. As for members, you may not have any, because I do not believe the sign up is working. I tried to join and didn't get anything....last time I looked, I was still not a member. If so, need to get that fixed if I am to go around trying to get members, LOL! So, I want to be a big part of this deal. I have had a great deal of experience with large fundraisers both in golf and in Easter Seals. So USE me! Let's make sure the member sign up is working and I will work on getting you LIKES too. I have over 600 friends on FB....and they have MANY MORE.....we could go from fifty something likes to thousands in no time at all! And I feel sure we will pick up some members along the way. Do they have to be on the JWMB to join? Thanks Keither......., some of the boys that used to work for me fondly called me that....that and KEISTER, LOL.....won't do that to YOU! KPKEITH

      Well, now. I read everything that's written here. I hadn't anything to add.

      BTW, if one desired to contribute to the White of Morn Foundation via PayPal, is that possible? I searched the page but failed to find a link. I dislike Facebook and don't Twitter. Please, do tell, friends Keith.
      We're burning moonlight.

      Some time ago, on Facebook, I had hoped, unsuccessfully, a presentation of a photo of the stand-in of Maureen in "The Quiet Man".
      I finally found a photo of Etta Vaughan along with the film crew.
      She is as beautiful as our Maureen ...:wub:

      [=chester7777;114432]I presume she is the one in the middle, with a shawl over her head.
      So, who is the guy in the back row? :wink_smile:....]


      Ah ! Ah ! Ah ! ! ! :nono:

      We posted these shots last August


      With kind permission of photographerGary McEwan

      If you look in the background you can see one of the female crew
      with the coat over her shoulders no doubt ready to pass to Maureen once the scene was shot.



      Is this Maureen or her stand-in Etta??
      or is it Maureen, our friends in Ireland are not sure either!

      Personally I think it's Maureen

      There are more rare photos from Page 4 here
