October 18 - Raye provides the money for Alex Montagu to divorce Laura Anne Smith, his wife of four years, who, temporarily, absconded with the Michael Jackson Tapes. DIVORCE FILING
To say this was startling and not at all what I expected is an understatement.
This is one of the family Bibles which, I was told, are extremely valuable.
A Boudoir Moment in the closet of Laura, Duchess of Manchester after she flew the coop.
The Ducal bed chamber with all the accoutrements any Montagu expects.
The Ducal Archive
The Ducal Sitting Room, next to the Ducal Kitchen (right)
Looking the other way in the Ducal Sitting Room, more archival Materials, very valuable.
The Ducal, um, pile of unwashed clothing.
The Ducal Library (guess the Ducal Librarian had the day off)
More very valuable books from the Manchester Collection,
under the care of the Ducal Curator
Don't we all store random papers in antique books with delicate bindings?
