Frog Hospital
News and commentary by Fred Owens in LaConner, a small town in the Skagit Valley. The story behind the name: There was once a grocery store in a quonset hut, run by Mr. Grobschmidt. Clyde, an old drunk who lived out on the river, thought that Mr. Grobschmidt looked like a frog, so he took to calling the store the "Frog Hospital." Now the quonset hut, Mr. Grobschmidt, and Clyde are all gone only this blog survives to carry on the Frog Hospital tradition.

Ava Gardner was born Lucy Johnson on a tobacco farm in Grabtown, North Carolina December 24, 1922. She was the youngest of seven children. Ava grew up to be one of the world's most beautiful women ever. Source: Green-eyed brunette Ava Gardner was the essence of female americana. A perfect southern beauty with natural grace and an inner fire of independence. She was a natural and a total HUMANIMAL (Human-Animal), and as far as an actress, she could turn it out when needed. Her amazing looks and incredible lust for life set her apart from all the others. Ava truly lived it up. Source: Tenderhearted and sympathetic to an unusual degree, Ava Gardner has an understanding of other people's feelings and needs which borders on telepathy. Ava Gardner is extremely compassionate and cannot bear to see any fellow creature - human or animal - suffer. Because of her kindness and nonjudgmental attitude, people suffering from pain or confusion are drawn to Gardner for help, which she readily gives. Sometimes Gardner's soft-heartedness is taken advantage of. Source:

Ava Gardner was born Lucy Johnson on a tobacco farm in Grabtown, North Carolina December 24, 1922. She was the youngest of seven children.
Ava Lavinia Gardner Ava Gardner was born Lucy Johnson on a tobacco farm in Grabtown, North Carolina December 24, 1922. She was the youngest of seven children. Ava grew up to be one of the world's most beautiful women ever. Ava started her career in 1940 at age 18. It all started when her brother-in-law had a picture of her in his window and this brought her to the attention of MGM which quickly lead to Hollywood and a movie totally based on her beauty. She didn't even believe in her own acting ability but she had lots and lots of talent. She made several movies early in her career but "The Killers" in 1946 made her famous. Ava acted in about 60 movies from 1941 until 1982. She was nominated twice for an Oscar but never won. Ava was married three times, to actor Mickey Rooney from 1941-1943, to band leader Artie Shaw from 1945-1946, and to Frank Sinatra from 1951-1957. Ava had a stroke in 1989, which left her partially paralyzed. Frank Sinatra paid for her medical expenses. She died of pneumonia in London, England on January 25, 1990 and is buried in Smithfield, North Carolina. Image courtesy of:

She gave us many memorable performances during her 45-year acting career and many fans still consider her the most beautiful actress in Hollywood history.
Early Years
Ava was born Ava Lavinia Gardner in Grabtown, North Carolina in 1922.
      Young Ava Modelling Her family lived modestly and Ava grew up happily, without ambitions or pretensions, in a very straight-laced environment.
At age 18, her picture in the window of her brother-in- law's New York photo studio brought her to the attention of MGM, leading quickly to Hollywood and a film contract based strictly on her beauty. Her gawky, unsophisticated demeanor was totally made over by the studio into an image of inaccessible glamour. MGM also provided her with a voice coach, as her Carolina drawl was nearly incomprehensible.
Although she entered the movie business very easily she found it tough going to become recognised and she played in a series of second reelers before she emerged from the ranks of decorative starlets. With zero acting experience, her first 17 film roles, 1942-5, were one-line bits or little better.

A biography with pictures of ava gardner, international movie star and legendary beauty, her marriages to Micky Rooney, Artie Shaw and Frank Sinatra,
AVA GARDNER The orthodox assessment of Ava Gardner is that she was an undistinguished actress who happened to be a great beauty. This does not do justice to her acting. It does not do justice to her beauty either! Ava was never given the type of roles that bestow respectability upon an actress; nor did she appear in films that win awards and critical admiration. Ava worked in the salt mines of the movie industry; in melodramas, historical romances and safari movies, in crime films and westerns: movies that film critics affect to despise. However, although film critics were reluctant to show enthusiasm for Ava or her movies, cinema-goers had no such inhibitions. She was born Ava Lavinia Gardner in Grabtown, North Carolina in 1922 into a large family of very modest circumstances, and grew up happily, without ambitions or pretensions, in a very straight-laced environment. An older sister had married a New York photographer who took some pictures of Ava when she visited them in 1941. He deposited the photos with the New York office of MGM who were so impressed that they invited Ava to make a screen test. MGM were delighted with the results of Ava's test but alarmed by her North Carolina accent, and sent a silent print to Hollywood. MGM Hollywood took one look at the test and instructed their East Coast office to send Ava out to California. Ava had not struggled to gate-crash the movies, but she did struggle to make progress. To MGM, she was just another good-looking starlet, suitable for pin-up photographs, walk-on parts and little else. In her first few years in Hollywood, Ava posed for hundreds of pin-up photographs which concentrated on her body and legs, and not her face. In her autobiography "My Story" Ava refers to these pictures as "leg art", and there is little in them to distinguish her from other young actresses posing for similar photographs. What seems remarkable today is that MGM did not notice that it was Ava's face which set her apart from other Hollywood hopefuls, not her legs and body.
