Educational Writings-Discourse, Part XXX: the Life and Times of Beverly Carrick—World-Famous Artist, Part Nine!” by Moses Scharbug III

 

 

Bakersfield, CA, 12-30-2012 Su:  Here it is, the Thirtieth of this year, which, to me, is somewhat amazing as the year seems like it just started and then again, we are nine days past the day when all hell was supposed to break loose upon the world.  I know that some of us have speculated that the end times might actually be happening in “slow motion,” due to all of the horrible things that have occurred over the previous several weeks.  If it is not one thing, it is another but the massacre of grade schoolers and their teachers in Connecticut a few weeks ago is simply appalling.  One of the reasons I think for this horrifying atrocity is that the school administrators give the youth of today—primarily the males—all sorts of drugs to keep them “passive” in school, you know, the ADD and autism, and the like.  I believe that this is the incorrect thing to do as it “retards” the boys and instills in them the idea that normal boyhood behavior is something of which, they should be ashamed and not something, any of us should tolerate.   I have never seen such a time of pharmaceuticals being handed out by educational professionals to feminize little boys and to turn them into mind-numbed robots, to take away their playtime and their sports and basically to turn them into quivering heaps of humanity.   Ever since the horrendous lie of feminism sprang to life in the 1960s, the idea has been to pacify and to neuter little boys so that the girls would reign supreme.  I do believe that with all of the horrible crimes that have occurred since President Bill Clinton was in office, Columbine being the starting salvo, it seems to me that this is the repercussion for the heinous attempt at castration of young males.   Of course, I know many of the women out there in the audience are aghast at old Moses saying this but to tell you the truth, Old Moses has lived a long time and has seen the light and women’s lib is an evil thing.  Yes, people should be treated properly and never abused but to attempt to turn boys into girls is having a deleterious effect in that homosexuality is on the increase, youth crime is abhorrently high, and real men are nowhere to be seen.  God help us all, perhaps this is the beginning of the end in slow motion.
Brian Carrick in 8th Grade
 

As we continue with our story on the life and times of the famous artist, Beverly Carrick, and that of her family’s, it would appear that Brian Carrick might just be a prime example of what the educational system has done to young males.  It is clear that between his father and mother and his upbringing, life was unfair to him at an early age and it is fortunate that he is here with us now.  He is the primary source of the information presented here at the AICP-END for this series of articles, his brother, a lawyer, and his aunt and uncle, are secondary sources.  Other than that, we only have records, which we have researched thoroughly. 
Brian Carrick as a Sophomore at Garces Memorial High School in 1972
 

As we see, things were not well in the Carrick household in Bakersfield, CA, and it was clear that they were becoming worse.  Brian entered Garces Memorial High School in the fall of 1970 and it was a brave new world of sorts.  Harry was considering retirement from Mobil Oil Company due to an impending relocation of the family to Alaska, something that troubled him dearly while his wife was hoping that some miracle might occur in which, she suddenly was a widow or a divorcee.  Meanwhile, Patrick was still studying at USC but his beloved major, drama, was going by the wayside as he was learning the truth about education and drama school: if you were not  Gay, you did not get the juicy parts but instead, were left to languish by the side of the stage.  The idea was, “You play with my balls with me and I will play with yours and in turn, give you the coveted roles onstage,” more or less and that simply did not appeal to Patrick.

Patrick was in his junior year at the university and he and his wife were doing well or so he thought.  They did not want children right away and put that on hold until after he graduated.  His wife, Trish, was doing the best she could and was working at a local bank while he pounded the books night and day.  The only time they came home to Bakersfield was on the holidays but even so, they were becoming fewer and farther apart due to the irascibility of his father whenever they crossed paths.   Harry had a particularly fond dislike of his eldest son and it inspired him to do his best to set his teeth on edge whenever he came home so therefore, they seldom did.  Besides, it was becoming increasingly more costly to drive his MG Midget and on one of the rare occasions when he did come home, his father, in a magnanimous gesture bestowed his 1967 Ford Mustang upon his eldest son—something that blew the young man’s mind. 

Harry had his eye on a Buick and soon purchased it leaving his wife to continue driving the Pontiac.  This little show of love and generosity did not last long as Harry ruined the wonderful gift by running his oldest boy off in tears—once again.  This, however, was a cover for what was ongoing within Harry and that was (1) concern over his deteriorating health due to his heavy alcoholic intake and (2) fear of the move to Alaska.  Therefore, in the spring of 1970, he announced to the world that he was going to retire and stay home, leaving his wife to have him on hand for twenty-four hours a day.

This was not something that she considered tolerable, so she made Harry get up out of his rocking chair and find work of some sort to keep him occupied and hopefully, sober.  Harry took a part-time job at Bakersfield College teaching the young kids’ mathematics, something he could not do for his own son without sending him away in heaving sobs.   The money in this was good but he sought other employment and soon enrolled himself in the real estate curriculum.   He breezed through the courses, in time took up residency at Karpe Realtors in town, and went to work for a woman named Joyce, who took great pleasure in emasculating him as best she could. 

This sort of thing bothered Harry horribly as at heart, he was a true misogynist, he hated women because his mother had been horrible, his aunts even worse, and the only man who was man enough to deal with them was his father, the main monster of the Carrick clan.   Harry did his best to appear industrious but at home, he collapsed into growing alcoholism and the fights between husband and wife were ghastly as the insults and the anger grew at a greater pace than ever before.   Husband and wife simply did not like one another but Beverly was concerned that she would be unable to support herself and keep food on the table for her remaining son if she and Harry broke up.  However, what choice did she have if her husband lost his mind and her dreams about him having a heart attack and dying increased. 

Meanwhile, she continued painting and taking her art down south to her agents and then, at some point, she met the man who would give her the strength to throw her bum of a husband out of the house.  Howard Morseburg was a reputable art dealer and had several galleries in Los Angeles and one over on the coast.  He also had connections to other gallery owners and had hocked art almost all of his life.  A natural born salesperson, he and his wife, Barbara, had all the trappings of success and when they came across Beverly, they already knew of her work and made their pitch. 

The deal they promised her was way better than what Maury and Violet gave her and even though he seemed to be somewhat of a shyster, he still had a better offer and so she aligned herself with the Morseburgs.  They took her under their wing, gave her more money per painting than she had ever had before and put her into more galleries.  Of course, the art world at the time was still a “man’s world,” but she was a quick-learner and enjoyed her new opportunities.  She did, however, have to find a way to hide her new source of income from her husband, lest he glom onto it like he did everything else.  Harry always complained about now, that he was ‘retired,’ he needed to control all of the money lest they go broke.  This, of course, was very galling but as of yet, she was not ready to part ways with her husband of many years.  

One day, that all changed.  It was the summer of 1971, Brian was in between freshman and sophomore years at school and one day, Harry was terribly drunk and staggering about the family’s kitchen.  He and Beverly were locked in mortal combat, the words were flying and the scene was ugly.  This, of course, was nothing new but it was eating away at young Brian’s mind.  He walked into the midst of the battle and told his father to ‘back off my Mom” to which, his father held up a grapefruit knife and said, “I will kill you.” 

Immediately, Brian pushed his mother back and got into his father’s face and told him, “NO, I WILL KILL YOU” to which, his frightened mother pulled him back and said, “NO!”  Harry glared at his son and at his wife and waved the knife in their faces and then decided that it was best to go into the other room lest his son actually attempt to kill him, something the young man most likely could and would have done. 

To his sobbing mother, Brian told her, “We cannot take this anymore, mom, you need to divorce this man or I will kill him!”  That frightened Beverly enough to consult a lawyer the next time her worthless husband was at one of his jobs and then armed with his advice, visited the banks in which, the family had its money.  She took out half of each and then went back to the attorney’s and signed the papers of divorce, initiating something she never before had the courage to do.  Now, however, faced with the threat of bloody violence and a son with rapidly diminishing emotional and mental control, she did the right thing and that was to protect both her and him from any further abuse.  She did, unfortunately find out that not everything goes as planned.


Who served Harry the divorce papers is unclear, it is not clear if Beverly did it or a process server was called in to do the deed.  What is clear is that Harry immediately changed tact and actually managed to sober up and to quell any notion that his wife had of leaving him.  Whether he was concerned about losing her or half of the money is debatable but most people involved at the time suspect that it was the loss of money, stocks and bonds, and the property that motivated him to dry up and play ‘nice.’   Harry, somewhat flustered and yet refreshed with this unexpected wake up call, cleaned up his act and tried to apologize for all of his misdeeds and to promise that things would change.  His wife and son, however, were determined that no more should and could happen as if it did, the end would certainly not be pretty. 

When Harry realized that no one was going to forgive him and give him a “second chance,” immediately went back to what he’d been doing for months now since he retired.  That was get rip-roaring drunk, stagger around the house crying, avoiding the shower, wearing nothing but his underclothes, and sitting out on the front doorstep crying to the world around them.  Nauseated and somewhat upset over this disturbing spectacle, Beverly called the Bakersfield Police Department (BPD) to come and ‘arrest her husband for drunkenness and out of control’ to which, the police informed her they could do ‘no such thing.’  It was half his house, too, and if he wanted to sit out on the front stoop sobbing to the world about how unjust it all was, then so be it.  They would come back, however, they told her if he became violent and threatened her or her son but that if he wanted to tear down HALF the house, he had every right to do so. 


We will stop here for today but it is somewhat interesting about how law enforcement looked at this sort of thing back in the 1970s or before and how they do NOW.  If someone acts like this, the police are obligated to take someone in the situation to jail so they can prevent bodily harm, assault, or murder.  Back then, however, the aggressor had to be in the process of doing his or her spouse bodily harm before they would come to the scene of the problem, which is not good for the one being mistreated.  In the case of Harry and his escapades on the front doorstep or in the yard, the police took more than 45 minutes to arrive at the residence at 500 Magnolia Avenue—not good, if Harry had been killing son and wife!

As always, we have a great time around here and that is why we want all of you to become a part of the organization by submitting articles to us for inspection and full-credit.  It is a great thing if you would do this, as it is a symbiotic relationship: we give you the space to share your recipes and in return, you send us more and more people who will become dedicated followers of the END.  Currently of multi-diversity across the Internet, it is important that we hear the voices of more and more people from all walks of the foodservice profession —join us. We urge our readership to write to us, leave comments, and if there are any of you, who would care to write an article for us, please get in touch via Magnolia Hilltop Brewers, P.O. Box 20669, Bakersfield, CA 93390-0669.  We obviously do not pay anything but give YOU full byline and that, my friends, is worth its weight in gold.  We want as many people who want to write to be able to do so and we believe that by presenting a forum for our fellow chefs, we are doing something for our beloved industry.  We love diversity and hope to add new and different authors to our pantheon of chefs, food and beverage directors, and culinary professionals.  Come on and join us, it will be fun! Expect that when all of us have run through our cycle, we will be introducing some brand-new talent or so Stinky says.

Friends, things have changed regarding the AARC Technology Company in Bakersfield, CA, we are now going to promote them over the course of time due to their making things right by us and helping us with our computer situation.  We do not wish to boycott anyone in this wonderful world and the fact that both AARC and Nerds on Call.com are on board with us is a good thing.  People, buy all of your computers from AARC Technology in Bakersfield, CA, they build the best equipment and make the best products and we hope that you check them out.  If the world is going to end, why not add a new computer to your wish list of holiday gifts as remember, it is only money and we cannot take it with us!  

          I do hope you are enjoying this tale, it is highly elucidating to present the facts to you as they have been given to me.  Of course, memories are somewhat dull after the decades have rushed by and also, some of the principals are dead and gone but for those still in the know, it is precisely a tale of liberation as much as it is a success story.  I mean, Beverly Carrick’s indomitable spirit was forged in the misery of bone cancer at age 12 and then put through the honing process for more than two decades married to a beast like her first husband.   It has to have affected her artistic abilities because the experience freed her mind like a mind-altering drug on the scale of LSD, mescaline, or magic mushrooms (oh, for the day!), and allowed her to transmit heart, soul, and fortitude to the canvass of countless paintings.  In so doing, she gave happiness to many millions of people the world over, including the Chinese who presently lift her artistry off the blogsite using the powers of 'click and save' and then paint hundreds if not thousands of counterfeit paintings!                

          Friends, please buy your holiday gifts as soon as possible, so you if the world does continue, you and yours can enjoy them.  Nothing says “I love you” better than a Beverly Carrick painting and now that the artist has passed away, her paintings are invaluable.  Buy now by calling us at 661-831-2544 after looking at the beverlycarrick.com website.   

          For the fashion-conscious living in Bakersfield, California, please visit the Westchester Hair Company located in Bakersfield, California, on “F” Street above the famed KC Steakhouse.  Carol is the proprietor and this year, they have lost not only Beverly Carrick Snow but also Ron Lopez, one of the top hairstylists in the city.  We promote them and their abilities and want you to call them at 661-324-9864.  Please visit us weekly if you live in Kern County and if you live outside, please fly in once a month from any part of the world and have Carol take care of your hair—you will not be disappointed.  We recommend nothing but the best here at the AICP-END so please visit them and tell them that WE sent you!  Thank you!                                                                       

Anyhow, let us close with this impassioned plea—please leave some comments and/or become a follower and why not spend some money and purchase an album by MOUNTAIN or West, Bruce, and Laing and/or buy a cookbook from Amazon.com—we want to make some money here so help us out by buying something!  Allied with them, we are pleased to market their merchandise! When we finish advertising albums by Mountain and West, Bruce and Laing, we will begin presenting albums by Frank Zappa and the Mothers of Invention!  See you next time around! Bye!
