Friday Morning at the Reagan Ranch –Updated With Photos

The framed photo hanging in the Reagan Ranch shed shows Ronald Reagan and Margaret Thatcher in a pose from “Gone With the Wind.” The British press published the mock poster but Reagan liked it so much he had it framed and displayed it next to where he hung his saddles.

I’m in Santa Barbara and am heading over the the Reagan Ranch this morning with Jason Mattara and the Young America’s Foundation.

The horrible news today from Syria and Venezuela ought to make this trip to the Reagan Ranch on “Freedom Week” even more impactful.
I hope to post more later.

This is the jeep that President Reagan drove Barbara Walters around in during a memorable interview.

Now this is a memorable photo…

Ronald and Nancy Reagan invited Soviet Leader Mikhail Gorbachev to the ranch while Reagan was in office. Gorbachev, not used to proper cowboy attire, put his hat on backwards. Reagan said nothing.
