Wait, wait!

Is this the same Curtis who appears with Alice (wife # 2) in the other photo? I think Vincent Piazza is likely correct.

 "Just a little further, Sweet Alice." "Sign on the dotted line, Dear Aliceā€¦."

Thank you for sharing this picture. Does Ina really know the risk she is taking by getting on the cliff with Curtis?

Really?  A third wife . . .  This is too much. This is like a bad joke. It is like the guy that takes all of his wives to the same place to propose to them.  I cannot believe that Curtis took Ina to the same place that he took Alice. laugh

I believe that Curtis is in the same pose that he was in with Alice.  Leaning further away from the cliff also.

I have to say that I love this picture though.

Table Rock, Tennessee is beautiful country, and to be able to sit on the top of that rock and see all around you - what an incredible sight it must have been.

Can you imagine how far away you would have been able to see? Just from the picture, I can see the lake beneath them and nature surrounding them.

If I remember correctly, that particular rock is not nearly as high as it appears to be - otherwise they wouldn't have been able to take the children to the top of it.

Thank you so much for sharing this picture with the community. It is lovely.

God Bless.
