Me and My Ex-Wife SUZANNE -
This picture was taken at Bellingham, Washington at Christmas in 1972 at our good friends the Mathers!
I was 36 and she was 22 and an absolute charmer
(in English or French)!
She was from Montreal but had moved to Los Angeles with her family and then she moved to Vancouver where she got a job in the Pharmacy at the Vancouver General Hospital where I met her at a party! An uninhibited beauty who certainly helped make the 1970's an unbelievable time especially when she became my girlfriend and later my wife and shared my interest in nudes! We took 100s of nude photos of ourselves (even some pornos) and both of us were in good shape and Suzanne was a model beyond belief!
I've always said that there is nothing more beautiful on this planet than a lovely nude woman and as the years progressed I certainly saw and photographed many more than my share!
JOHN KIRKUP - the MOUNTAIN SHERIFF - From CANADA WEST MAGAZINE but originally published in HARPERS MAGAZINE in 1891...
I had the actual leather bound Harpers Magazine but lent it to Bill so he could use the pic of my grandfather for his magazine but I never got it back !
If the original Water-Colour Wash by Frederic Remington still existed it would be worth a LOT of money, but it is believed that it was lost in a fire sometime in the 1920s in New York State !!!
The Kirkups out for a Sunday drive around 1908...Some of the other people in the automobile I believe are part of the Clothier family also from Rossland...
Thanks to a font-of-all-knowledge friend in Maple Ridge, B.C. the vehicle has been identified as a 1907 Gladiator Touring Car !
Left: Pictured are SUSAN, ROBERT, JACK (My Father) and JOHN KIRKUP and the family dog ! The woman standing has not been identified...She could possibly be a a member of the CLOTHIER family...ca.1907
Right: 'BIG' JOHN KIRKUP - Six Foot Three or Four and rumoured to have weighed about 300 pounds !
I can understand why nobody wanted to mess with this guy when he was Sheriff ! ca.1907
Skiers At the Summit Of MOUNT KIRKUP Near Revelstoke, B.C. Height: 6772 Feet
In 1936 the BC Government discovered they had two mountains with the same name! They renamed one of the mountains MOUNT KIRKUP after my Grandfather (Sheriff) John Kirkup...
I never discovered this fact until the 1970s when I was contacted by the BC Government Archives who wanted more information about my Grandfather... Apparently, if you can believe, they did not know he was Gold Commissioner and Government Agent when he died at Nanaimo in 1913 of diabetes...
When he died they closed the Legislature for half a day in tribute !
