Ronald Reagan

February 6, 1911 – June 5, 2004

No matter what time it is, wake me, even if it’s in the middle of a Cabinet meeting.

Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you know that Reagan died a couple of weeks ago.

 

Actually, on the 5th of June, Nancy Reagan (aka Mommie Poo Pants) announced:

“My family and I would like the world to know that President Ronald Reagan has passed away after ten years of Alzheimer’s, at 93 years of age. We appreciate everyone’s prayers over the years.”

 

The Reagans lived behind this gate on a street called St. Cloud Road in Bel Air.

 

 

Their address is 668.

 

 

The house was actually a gift to them upon his retirement from the Presidency, and originally the address of the house was 666, but Nancy had it changed.  Mmhmm.  I was at his house earlier that day, and nothing was going on, all looked normal.  Then at about 2:30 p.m., when I was told he had died, I returned to find this mayhem.

 

 

The police cordoned off the area around the Reagan’s house, and closed off the street for the week, posting guards at each end.

 

 

Honestly, I haven’t seen that much fuss in that quiet neighborhood in my life, and I’m there a lot.  They even had a guard down the road at the Fresh Prince house.

Trivia: Nancy and Ronald were married in the Little Brown Church, where Herve Villechaize‘s funeral would be held.

 

 

MORE:  The National Enquirer once picked the Reagan’s garbage, and published a photograph of it.  This is the reason God made tabloids, and I subscribe to them.

    When President Regan was in LA he used to get his hair cut at Drucker’s Barber Shop in Beverly Hills. Working one building over, often saw his Secret Service detail guarding Drucker’s back alley entrance behind Wilshire Blvd.

    Once saw “industrialist” Armand Hammer (followed by his concerned looking driver) enter that same entrance. Never seen a man more intensely focused.

    Guessing meeting Regan accidentally (on purpose) to lobby for a Presidential Pardon for Hammer’s felony conviction of his Nixon illegal campaign contribution. Hammer REALLY wanted a Nobel Peace Prize which, surprise, surprise, excludes felons… Didn’t get a pardon from Regan, but President GHW Bush did grant him one. Hammer never got the prize though –

    Also used to enjoy seeing his Air Force One jet at Santa Monica Airport (sureal site, the jet was taller than surround buildings) or, by today’s standards, his very small presidential motorcade zooming down Olympic Blvd at 80 miles an hour in Century City towards Beverly Hills.

    Your 4th pic shown of St Cloud Rd jammed with cars. Wall & clipped trees on right belong to “Chartwell” Lachlan Murdoch estate, aka Beverly Hillibillies tv show mansion. Former owner, A. Jerrold Perenchio, bought the Regan’s place after he died & tore it down! Nancy reputedly changed the street address number due to “Satanic” associations with 666.

      Read the St. Cloud house was bought by members of Regan’s “Kitchen Cabinet”. After decades of low paying public service jobs (all things being relative) the Regan’s immediately “cashed in” with speaking engagements. One of the first, for which they were highly criticized for, was in Japan. Rumor was they raked in $2 mil for an hour’s talk. Can anyone say ka-ching? The house was speedily paid off –

        Favorite informal pic of First Lady Nancy:

        Think personifies Nancy in her “idealized element”, seldom seen her more animated – Pic taken at billionaire Walter & Leonore Annenburg’s 200 acre estate “Sunnylands” in Rancho Mirage California.

        Believe taken when Regan was President by what appears to be “Marine One” Presidential helicopter behind the large tree trunk in the background.
