I love sleeping in Pioneertown California. A standing old west movie set and hotel that, back in the day, housed the likes of one of my favorites -- Barbara Stanwyck while she was filming the great John Sturges' picture Jeopardy (with two of my other favorites -- Ralph Meeker and Barry Sullivan), the place is a high point in the Hi Desert. Roy Rogers, Gene Autry, Russell Hayden, Cisco Kid Duncan Renaldo and Gail Davis all stayed there.
I slept in Miss Russell's past residence. I wanted Stanwyck's Jeopardy pad but was lured by the horses directly across Russell's room. I love horses. The below clip shows my ardor. And it makes me happy.
So yes, waking up to these beasts was beautiful. And I felt like Tippi's Marnie: "Oh Forio if you want to bite somebody, bite me!"
