Big Bucks in ‘The Big Trees’

The Big Trees

A Remake of the Movie

While on the phone with my friend, Casey Farrell, I missed a live video chat with Michael Dundon who responded to my message. My kin sent me a red rose that he had planted several days ago.

Casey and I talked about my idea of remaking the movie ‘The Big Trees’ after I saw it was just released to the public domain. Michael was by the ocean when he called me. After my hour long conversation with Mr. Farrell, I called Shamus Dundon’s uncle back. At the end of our hour long conversation, I mentioned my movie idea.

“I just saw that movie a few days ago!”

I was amazed! Casey and I have been talking for two months about the synchronicity that is occurring, that is giving us permission to carry on our separate investigations and study, that was merging. Casey had mentioned that Kirk Douglas starred in The Big Trees after I brought up his connection to Ken Kesey and his Cuck-Coo’s Nest story that Douglas bought and starred in a play. He later sold the right to his son, who made the famous movie. I had made the connection to William Buck and Anchor Beer. We talked about ‘Sometimes A Great Notion’. For fifteen years Michael worked as a Logger up the McKenzie. He was a foreman for several famous outfits.

At the end of my conversation with Casey, I told him I own no love for any member of my family, including Christine. I told him they all sold themselves to The Devil for BIG BUCKS! My minor daughter was lured away from me – thanks to Robert Brevoort agreeing to the sell of my families literary legacy to outsiders – along with the artistic legacy. Heather wanted to be a star. Her mother was a Stage Mother who called her sister a ‘Gold-digger’.

“My family prostituted themselves for money and power!”

At the end of our conversation, Michael reminded me of the art supplies I bought his grandson. He had encouraged Christine to take up art, and bought her art supplies. I said, not knowing if my brother is alive or dead – is an outrage!

Two minutes after my call, I realized that Michael will love Christine – till the day he dies! Three months ago he was given a death sentence. He does not have long to live. He called me as he stood in the sand….looking out to sea. I was relieved that Christine Rosamond….is still loved.

John Gay (screenwriter) – Wikipedia

A Renewed View of Some of the World’s Oldest Trees – The New York Times (

There is no town of Wakonda. There is no Wakonda Auga River. These places existed only in the mind of Ken Kesey, who is dead, and in the pages of his logging novel Sometimes a Great Notion, which is long. You can get lost in the pages, but you won’t find directions.

Yet a sort of roadmap to the home of the fictional Stamper family does exist. “All up and down the West Coast,” Kesey wrote in 1963, “there are little towns much like Wakonda. Towns dependent on what they are able to wrest from the sea in front of them and from the mountains behind, trapped between both.”

New faces enter fray as California recall slowly takes shape (

Six weeks after California officials announced that Democratic Gov. Gavin Newsom would face an almost certain recall election that could drive him from office, the contest continues to be roiled by uncertainty and questions – even the date when it might take place remains unclear.

Newsom, meanwhile, has regained his footing after seeing his popularity fall at the start of the year amid the worst of the pandemic and criticism over his COVID restrictions for the public and businesses. The first-term governor has since benefited from a sharp decline in cases during the spring and a record-breaking surplus that allows him to bestow billions on favored projects and issues.

Buck Oil Spill and The Wendlings

Posted on February 22, 2019 by Royal Rosamond Press

When my late sister saw the painting I did of Rena Easton in 1971, she took up art and became know all over the world as ‘Rosamond’.

Frank Buck was the co-founder of Beverly Hills. It was named after the Beverly Plantation in Massachusetts, where my Wilson Ancestors came to found a new world colony.

“The story begins with the passing of Mrs. Buck’s husband, Leonard, in 1953. Buck was head of the family controlled Belridge Oil Company, which owned valuable assets in the southern San Joaquin Valley. These were left to Beryl, his surviving spouse, who in turn surprised everyone except her most intimate advisors by stipulating in her will (written with Cook’s help) that the the Belridge holdings (then valued at about $11.5 million) should be transferred to the San Francisco Foundation, an organization both she and Cook trusted, to be used for the exclusive benefit of the residents of the place she loved–Marin County.

If Mrs. Buck lived fairly anonymously, her death—and what came with it–caught people’s attention. With oil prices rising steadily, it was generally assumed that the Belridge shares would also rise, leading eventually to a buyout by one of the industry giants that would be willing to pay a nice premium to gain control of its substantial proven reserves—which is precisely what happened in the 1979 acquisition by Shell. Today, due to prudent investing of the proceeds and the luck of the market, the Buck Trust’s core value stands at more than $1 billion”.

John Wilson (c.1588–1667), was a Puritan clergyman in Boston in the Massachusetts Bay Colony, and the minister of the First Church of Boston from its beginnings in Charlestown in 1630 until his death in 1667. He is most noted for being a minister at odds with Anne Hutchinson during the Antinomian Controversy from 1636 to 1638, and for being an attending minister during the execution of Mary Dyer in 1660.

Born into a prominent English family from Sudbury in Suffolk, his father was the chaplain to the Archbishop of Canterbury, and thus held a high position in the Anglican Church. Young Wilson was sent to school at Eton for four years, and then attended the university at King’s College, Cambridge, where he received his B.A. in 1610. From there he studied law briefly, and then studied at Emmanuel College, Cambridge, where he received an M.A. in 1613. Following his ordination, he was the chaplain for some prominent families for a few years, before being installed as pastor in his home town of Sudbury. Over the next ten years he was dismissed and then reinstated on several occasions, because of his strong Puritan sentiments which contradicted the practices of the established church.”


Del Monte Aviation & Buck Inst.

Robert Buck owns the law firm that stepped into to be the Special Executor of Rosamond’s creative legacy after Vicki Presco refused to serve. Robert is connected to the Buck Trust and Institute that is right out of a science fiction novel in regards for searching for the Fountain of Youth.  Robert also owns Del Monte Aviation that flies in professional golfers to play at Pebble Beach. This beats anything Thomas Pynchon could dream up. This is what Heather,  the sixteen year old daughter ‘The Gold Digger’,  was after, Fame, Fortune, and an unending fountain of booze. Heather’s ambition was the be the Most Popular Girl in the World. This is why Linda Comstock told my minor child to un-invite me to her High School graduation. Linda and Flip had major plans for this minor.

I kept telling my daughter; “All’s well, that ends well!” As it turns out the Buck Trust established Alcohol Justice because the Buck family suffered from alcoholism. In Rosamond’s probate are pleas to Morris to respect the family miracle of sobriety, thanks to Alcoholics Anonymous.

The end of Christine and my story is Flip toasting Tyler Hunt in a bar.

“Truth is stranger than fiction!”

Who paid for the clean-up? Did Robert Buck hide the history of his ancestor? How many seabirds were shot dead in Marin County? Who paid for the shotgun shells?

    The Wendlings

    Royal Rosamond had Dashiell Hammet, and Lilian Hellman onboard. Plans were being made to bring the Wendlings to Marin. After the two big oil spills by Frank Buck’s oil tankers, one in the bay itself, thousands of poor people in Oakland and San Francisco, were up in arms. The Wobleys were going to supply some old trucks and automobiles. In inconspicuous caravans, they headed north. The children of Wendling knew something was up. The frowns their parents wore, was waning, and they caught radiant smiles aimed at them. Their loving parents could look them in the eye again.
