in rural Mississippi
Right his real name was Francis or Marion something or another...
And there were two John Wayne movies yesterday afternoon on TV...someone must have sneaked a peak at your blog!And his real name was Marion. And apparently he was called "The Duke" because as a boy, he had a very large dog named Duke who was his everywhere all the time buddy. They became known as the "big" Duke (the dog) and the "little" Duke. The "big" Duke passed on as our favorite friends will do, and the "little" Duke became the only Duke. Or so I heard...!
Be nice. Nothing inappropriate, please.
