1951, I was so thrilled as SunnyGrand Stampede
Queen to sit on the stage in Richland and visit with Kirk Douglas. All the Queens from various towns
were invited to sit on the stage with Kirk. An airplane flew over and he talked to the pilot.

I sat beside him and he ask me a lot of questions
about our area and was so handsome. He signed his
name in my cowboy hat, wished I had kept it.

Regreted that I never had a picture of the occasion.
