Thanx for the pics.

Here's a link to a news story on another blog about Morehouse. The news article spells her name "Morehouse" while other sources spell it "Moorehouse", not sure which is correct.

Oooo-weesh

I read somewhere she got her nickname from one of the kids at the ranch she took care of that couldn't pronounce "Ruth", don't know if it's true or not.

What HS is this? What city?

and to realize Charlie was tappin her within a year of the photo taken. Kind of puts the sheer scuminess of it all in perspective.

It is Leggett Valley High School in Leggett, CA 1968!

She looks like she brightens up any room she walks into.

Then, and probably even now.

Wow, these are great!

TomG said...

These are great, in that they depict that she was just a kid, and not an evildoer.....as the Fox Nation mentality would portray.

Kids get caught up in messes. If it were up to them, they would always do the right thing. But sometimes it isn't up to them.

And because of irresponsible parents they are faced with swim or drown choices.

You choose whatever keeps you going a little bit longer, as Jackson Browne would say.

Yeah Ruth's father didn't sound like he was the most rational fellow, at least according to what I've read. And kids didn't have google back then so they did a lot more stupid shit. Or more obviously stupid shit I guess is more accurate. Smoking banana peels is really what I'm getting at ;)

Anyway speaking of irrational people and google (and stupid shit), where's Ruth today??

Over 40 years ago, friend of mine peeled a banana and hung the peel up to dry so he could smoke it. When he went back, the peel had rotted. That's what he said, anyway.

rfoster1 said...

Orwhut, I imagine after 40 years the banana peel would be unfit for smoking :-)

She was a CHILD in these photos, and was STILL a CHILD a year later when Charles Manson having sex with her. Why he wasn't charged with rape of a minor is beyond me. Of course, she wasn't the only underage girl he had. Makes me sick...Ol Rev. Moorehouse should of implanted his boot up CM's anus, then made him eat the corn off of it!!!

I saw the banana peel fan not long ago. That's my favorite story about him.

I think Dean had something like that in mind. Then he met Charlie and turned to the dark side.

She looks SO young, and her hair was so short! Looks more like a junior high age, doesn't it? She changed a lot by 1969.
Thank you for posting such rare findings as this; it's good to know that I have a well-rounded forum for my kooky Family interests. :)
