I visited The Oh So Very Cool Bonnie & Clyde Ambush Museum in Gibsland, Louisiana today.

Fitting I do believe ....

Clyde was respected by his contemporaries on both sides of the Law for his driving skills in the Ford V-8 .....

He could navigate a gravel road at high speed with such skill - after a brief pursuit his followers were left in the dust ... ;)

Henry has been pretty quiet now for 70+ years. Good to see his leadership
qualities and experience are still valued.

Bonnie May have written the actual letter
referenced above - Clyde was not so good
With grammar ....

She started writing poetry at a young age.

Anything that can be attributed to her is valuable if authenticated - her mother burned just about everything she could when Bonnie died.

Perry ( the owner of the museum ) might bid on this poetry book this Saturday:

Right up there with Mr. Ford, is our own Scott Conger, who was elected mayor of Jackson, TN.

Scott ran and won on the Model T ticket, promising voters to put a plantary
transmission in every car. Be sure to ask him about it, next time you see him.
