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

 

 

Bakersfield, CA, 12-27-2012 Th:  Hello, again, I am somewhat stunned at the amount of lawlessness occurring right now what with our beloved Governor Jerry “Moonbeam” Brown letting more criminals out of prison because true to his word, if he didn’t get taxes increased more and more, he was going to let more and more scum out of prison.  Guess what, he did get his tax increases as the citizens of this state voted for them on November 06, 2012 and yet, we still see the crime rates in this state skyrocketing out of sight.  I have never seen such a vain idiot running a state the size of ours, this man is concerned with nothing else but having the People’s Republic of China build his high-speed rail system, something most people do not want.  The only reason they want to build it is so they can move gangbangers from one end of the state to the other faster than they already do PLUS to send the illegals tipping the voting scales to where they are needed, too.  If ever a man was guilty of treason to the people he represents, Jerry Brown is definitely the one.

When the election went the wrong way last month, no one wanted to call a spade a spade but I do not have a problem doing so.  Look, the way the flood of illegal aliens has been ongoing since the 1980s means that they now have the numbers on the Democratic side of the aisle to tip elections in once red states to purple and then blue.  I believe that the powers that be, the ones who believe in the North American Union, the ones believing in globalization, the ones believing in the reconquista, they are the ones directing the wetbacks to where they want them.  You see, why else would there be such an outrage against establishing voter ID laws, why does the Obama Justice Department knock each state’s attempt to protect the sanctity of their elections down?  The reason is because they want to overturn the electoral process once and for all and to rid the nation of the Republican Party. 

I think we will discuss some more of these thoughts each day prior to launching our way back into the story of Beverly Carrick, her life, times, and family, because Beverly was a staunch Republican and contributed too many conservative causes.  Many of us believe that the final straw breaking the camel’s back was the reelection victory of President Barack Obama.  As if things were not already bad in her life due to the loss of her beloved Mr. Jack (we will discuss him later), when Obama won his second term and when the news media called it at a relatively early hour—08:30 P.M.—she lost the will to live and basically gave up the fight.   Now, however, we return to whence we left off yesterday, the family living on Magnolia Avenue in Bakersfield, California.

Beverly continued working at her art career and went down to Los Angeles to see Maury and Violet at their gallery, taking her paintings with her, getting paid for the work she did, and given new orders to fulfill.  Art was the one thing she had to keep her buoyed in life as did her two kids.  With one of them leaving home for extended periods, she was not sure as to how the chemistry would change but had hopes that perhaps things would improve.  She concentrated on setting up her studio in an add-on wing of the house with her easel, her paints, and her art books.  She also armed herself with a camera and began taking shots of the world around her as well as using photos from their years spent vacationing at Newport Beach.  Now, however, the family would no longer be taking vacations as they once did and instead remained at home during her husband’s vacation time.  Most likely, this was to save money, the utmost number one thing important to Harry at the time and something that would eventually influence his wife down the road. 

The money she did make was beneficial to the family and her husband always enjoyed the fact that a certain amount of cash came in on a monthly basis.  Unfortunately, he did nothing but run down her abilities as he did those of his kids rather than praising them or helping increase them in anyway.  His youngest son wanted to learn karate so his mother took him to the dojo down the street on Alta Vista Drive.  There, he worked hard and did his best to earn his first two green stripes on his belt but his father, envious of anyone doing anything better than him, put him down to the point of tears, repeatedly, saying that boxing—what his father did in college—was one hundred times better than anything any “Jap” could do.  This stunted his son’s desires but he still worked on it for the time being.   

Harry never thought much about his wife’s artistic career, as long as it did not intrude upon his life.  The fact that she was growing in stature as an artist was something that meant little to him but like every other man, he liked to brag on his wife and use her beauty for arm candy.  Life continued on the same, however, as Harry spent his day away working at his office, visiting the different oilfields controlled by Mobil Oil around the county, and then spending the weekends on the golf courses in the Greater Bakersfield Area.  It was only when he was at home that friction occurred but the family had learned to be as unobtrusive as ever in order to keep the causes of arguments from occurring.  Normally, it did not take much to cause a problem: an incorrect word, a “look,” or a problem with the kids.   Harry didn’t need a great deal of impetus, he didn’t need a major source of ignition, he just needed something that no one had bothered to consider and the cyclical problems would begin anew. 

The first winter that Patrick came home from USC with Trisha was all it took.  The winter of 1967 was like every other winter only that in Bakersfield, it was extremely cold and sometimes, the Ridge Route, the “99,” would close down.  The Carrick house on Magnolia was the home in which combined families celebrated the Christmas holidays, it was the largest house, had the nicest dining room and living and family rooms plus it had a built-in bar.  When Pat and Trisha came home, they stayed out back in the guesthouse where they could have their privacy while Brian slept next door to his parents.   It was convenient for everyone the way they had plenty of room in which, to roam and Beverly and Brian hoped that with having their son/brother home, it would keep Harry contained. 


Harry, on the other hand began drinking heavily over the course of the Christmas holidays as Mobil Oil ran on a skeleton crew.  Gene, Elaine, their kids, Christopher and Craig came to the house for Christmas dinner as did Clarence and Florence Jamison.  It was nice having the family together and it was a cheery time what with an eight foot tall Christmas tree towering above the living room, presents underneath it, and a fire blazing in the fireplace.

In the old days when the family lived in Whittier, the family would go in two different directions during the winter holidays.  Normally, Thanksgiving was celebrated at the home of Harry’s brother, Tom, and his wife, Vivian or at the home of close friends, Helen and Arthur, an older couple.  Whenever Tom and his family got together with Harry and Beverly’s problems arose because Tom was as bad—if not worse—than his older brother, Harry.  One winter, Brian related to me, Uncle Tom and his mother, Beverly, got into a major fight and Harry sat there in silence while Tom caused her to break down in tears.  This was not an untypical situation, it generally happened whenever the two families got together because the Carrick brothers liked to drink, argue, and be problematic.  Auntie Vivian had learned to coexist with her husband whereas Beverly was opinionated and did not back down from a controversy, something she was learning from her husband.   It was a horrible argument and Brian never forgot the sight of his mother rushing from the table, tears streaking her makeup, for the bathroom, Auntie Vivian following to console her.  Then, it was argument all the way home as she and Harry were at one another’s throats over the events of the evening and WHY Harry did not jump in.

Christmas was celebrated in Bakersfield with Beverly’s family and normally, the kids stayed with their grandparents while Harry and his wife stayed at the Bakersfield Inn.  Things were never good with Harry when they came to Bakersfield because he knew his in-laws did not like him nor did he like them but they managed to get along by faking it.  Now, they came to his home and it was an excuse for him to misbehave from start to finish.  There was always an undercurrent to these events and everyone was glad when they were over.  Harry, however, had someone else in his sights and it was his oldest son, Patrick, and his wife. 

While Patrick was away at school during his first year, he had become decidedly liberal and like all young people enrolled in universities at the time, his political views changed dramatically.  One has to look at what was ongoing at the time, the first thing being the Vietnam War, one he almost got drafted to fight but luckily had been declared “unfit for duty.”  The other was the fact that it was 1967; the world was afire with psychedelics, rock and roll, the Summer of Love up north in San Francisco, and all sorts of experimentalism.  Harry loved a challenge so he questioned his son about his politics and when Patrick obliged, his father launched into him with both barrels blazing, causing him to react in the expected way: with anger and upset. 

Harry went after him night and day and Patrick and his wife finally had to leave—earlier than planned—for home.  Angrily, he said his goodbyes to his mother, his brother, and to his grandparents and uncle and aunt.  Then, he and Trish headed south in their car, back to school, and it would be a long time before he returned again.  Meanwhile, back at home, Harry now had his second goal realized and he and his wife had an ongoing battle lasting for a week or more. 

The first winter in Bakersfield was not a happy one and it was destined to get worse.  Harry continued to drink while his wife and remaining son did their best to remain out of his way but the evenings were difficult as there was nowhere to go.  When things finally came back to normal, life was fine but the scars were evident and ran deep.  When Patrick eventually did come home for Easter, things were about the same so it set into motion a series of events that eventually would lead to a schism in the family.  As long as his mother and father remained married, Patrick seldom came home and when he did, things were never good.  He persevered at school and did well, his first major being Drama, which he pursued ardently for about three years.  Brian, on the other hand, made it through sixth grade and more or less acclimated to life living in a new place but the first summer saw him taking the Greyhound bus south to spend two weeks with his friend, Jon Gothold and his family, and then a repeat visit by Jon to spend a similar amount of time in Bakersfield. 

Normally, when outsiders were within the house, Harry managed to keep his wits about himself and acted fairly normally.  Thankfully, he was working hard for Mobil Oil, doing the things superintendants do, visiting wells, talking to engineers, and managing the overall business.  He went to Los Angeles for meetings leaving the family on its own for several days at a time, something they came to love.  When he came home, however, issues would commence anew. 

In the fall of 1968, Brian headed off to seventh grade at Washington Junior High School, on the same street as his elementary school, Noble Avenue, but farther down the street by about four blocks.  It was there that he began exhibiting changes in his psychological makeup once again as his fears of the dark and of being kidnapped vanished but he found himself hanging out with the wrong group of kids in school, the “hard guys.” 

The “hard guys” were “tough guys,” would be juvenile delinquents, something he had never known in Whittier, California.  Over time, they would lead him astray but it was the first signs that something was still ongoing within him, something that the child psychiatrist had not uncovered nor fixed.  The main punk was a kid named Steven Foster, who for some reason mesmerized Brian and over the course of time, he began emulating him and his other friends.  Times were definitely new and different living in Bakersfield, California, yet there was nothing anyone could do about it, this is where the family was destined to live for an unknown amount of years, at least until the next transfer took them somewhere else, maybe New Orleans or possibly Alaska. 

That is going to do it for today, friends, we have gone along farther than planned for today and as always, we continue promoting paintings by Beverly Carrick and albums by Mountain and West, Bruce, and Laing.  We also recently concluded offering albums by Blue Cheer and before them, other fine artists and remember: you can help us out by buying your favorite music through us by using the convenient links posted here daily!

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------

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 love talking about Beverly Carrick’s life, sadly, I only met her in her later years, commencing around 2003 and then again when I began editing the blog fro Stinkbug.  A finer person you will never meet and her art deserves to live on throughout eternity.  There are thousands and thousands of artists alive and dead throughout the world and only few have the lasting effect of someone like Beverly.  She is among a small percentage of artists known around the world and yet, are not considered to be in the same category as some like Robert Wood, the Impressionists, and horrible ones like Andy Warhol, a total smuck if ever there was one!           

          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!  

Thank you!
