Re: Harry James, the famous bandleader
Hello, Go on the Outlaws Genforum. We did some about Harry over there. Also, My dad, Roscoe James had some info that Harry was claiming relationship with Jesse & Frank James the Outlaws. So, kept checking on Harry.
I got one about Betty Grable that will maybe safice you.
One winter day back in 1947, Walt Timme & I went up to his Uncle's place at Tarryall Res in the Pike National Forest here in Colorado. Walt's uncle was the man in charge of the fish in that res. He had this old Indian Motorcycle and since Walt was the Indian Dealer he wanted Walt to have it.So Walt & I drove up there to bring if back of which we did.
We had to stay the night. Walt's uncle told me that I would be sleeping in the same bed that Betty Grable had slept in that Summer and that he hoped that I wouldn't have dreams about her. He shouldn't had told me that!!!
In 1947, I was a growing boy!!!The next morning at breakfast, his wife ask me how was the bed? I must had blushed or something out of the ordinary, because she and Walt's uncle both laughed and then Walt laugh too!
