Day -47 and counting
Above is a link to some pictures of when the Beatles stayed at the Pigman Ranch 45 years ago this month. I can see the Pigman Ranch from my house Which is just across Y highway from the Ranch. John, George and Ringo flew in a small plane owned by Reed Pigman from Walnut Ridge Arkansas to the ranch while the more conservative Paul drove to the ranch. The Beatles stayed at the ranch for 36 hours for a mini vacation between engagements on their first US tour in 1964. In the biography of George Harrison, I, Me, Mine he recalled that they didn't get much rest. During the day they went horseback riding and at night they played cards instead of resting. The Pigman Ranch is currently being made over into a Baptist Christian Retreat.
