What an odd story. Does anyone know of a FLW-owned limousine? Or is it the assumption that anyone who is driven and for whom doors are opened in a limo?

I didn't know that one could don a cane. Apparel, certainly; accoutrements, not so much ? Perhaps I'm misinformed.

During which period were there Rhodesians at Taliesin ? Mr Wright's 1949 Jaguar Mk V, his '51 Riley RMB, the '53 Jaguar Mk VII, or the '56 Mercedes 300C might have appeared to some as "limousines" . . .

Don't know that Mr. Wright ever had a Rhodesian Ridgeback, but Mrs. Wright did, but that was long after Mr. Wright's death. I remember the dog well, because he was a free spirit.

One day the two of us were racing under the Pergola, outside the draughting room at Taliesin West, when he tripped me. I still have the scar to prove it. That "free-spiritedness" is probably one reason he didn't last long. Mrs. Wright's dogs were seldom allowed to leave her side.
