Garner Valley - Williamsburg Film Festival Gang and Me

To hall for daily chores, then drive to Yucca Valley and meet Bill Sasser and company at Pioneertown. Ed Falkner joins us. Walk street and compare production photos with buildings and sets. They shoot pictures and video. Ed heads home and we off to Garner Valley via route 74. Stop for lunch at Sugarloaf Cafe; then on to Garner Cattle Company. Tour ranch and take photos. First house there was built in 1905. Used in many movies, in particular, Tim Holt Westerns for RKO. I leave and drive down 74; they go other way down - through Idyllwild and on to Banning. I home; Beth there and has fed girls. Download pictures I took and call Sasser to make sure they made it down OK. Dinner with Beth. We to office. Called Uncle George; John Livers; and sister Linda in Denver. Later ~
