  Colorado's Royale Miss
Posted by: jameson245 - 09-20-2018, 02:33 PM - Forum: Pageants - Replies (2)

   

One of JonBenet’s favorite parts of participating in pageants was the crowning ceremony. She wasn’t concerned about the ranking of the potential title; it was the anticipation of having her name called that made it exciting. If she was announced as a winner, a beaming JonBenet would run up to the stage and collect what she referred to as her “hardware”. When she did not win her parents made sure JonBenet was right in line to congratulate the winner so that she could learn how to lose gracefully.

“She was untouched by it,” LaDonna Griego, director of the Colorado program for the All Star Kids organization, said, “When JonBenet won, she was just as giddy as the first time, and she was just as happy, it seemed, to be an alternate.

Linda, one of Patsy’s friends, had stopped by for a visit. They were chatting in the living room about various things going on in their families’ lives. JonBenet sat on her mother’s lap, listening in on the grown-up’s conversation. Patsy brought up that JonBenet had recently been in a contest.
“How did you do?” Linda asked JonBenet.
JonBenet looked up at her mom, too shy to answer. After some encouragement from Patsy, JonBenet replied with the simple answer, “I won.”
She hoped off her mother’s lap and ran outside to play. It wasn’t until later on that Linda found out that JonBenet had won the title of Little Miss Colorado.

I wonder what Daphne thinks now.  I am sorry she had to deal with any of this.

The Ramsey Family’s 1995 Christmas Card

John and Patsy Ramsey 1995 Christmas Newsletter
Twas a week before Christmas with a million things to do, And wouldn’t you know it, Mom came down with the flu. Fortunately the gifts were all gotten and under the tree, But the Christmas cards didn’t make it - as you can well see! So we’ll take this opportunity to extend the Holiday Cheer. And be the first to wish you a Healthy & Happy New Year!
We’ve finally given in to the computerized form letter! What better way to keep the high-tech industry in business!? Speaking of business, John and Access are going great guns. Europe has been successfully conquered with offices in every country except Norway! Mexico & Canada opened too. (Can you believe this grew out of our garage on Northridge?) Anyway, John was rewarded by parent company, Lockheed-Martin, by being elected an office of the company.
All work and no play make John a dull boy, so he leaves plenty of time for the latter. This year John, John Andrew, and Melinda took the crew of the Miss America (our sailing sloop) to victories in the NOOD Races in Chicago and a 4th place division finish of the Chicago-Mackinac Island Race. Seventy-knot winds in the Mac race really made the finish line look pretty good! John Andrew is a freshman at CU here in Boulder, and Melinda is due to complete her Nursing Degree from MCG [Medical College of Georgia] in Augusta next June.
Burke is busy in his third grade year at a new school named High Peaks. It is a Core Knowledge school which accesses high academics and personal achievement. He loves it! He continues with Boy Scouting and the piano. This winter he is the tallest guy on his basketball team. Summer on Charlevoix was spent taking golf and sailing lessons each day. Burke is quite the sailor!
JonBenet too had a busy summer in Charlevoix. She was crowned Little Miss Charlevoix in a pageant in June and spent the rest of the summer riding in convertibles in various home-town parades throughout Michigan. She performed a patriotic tap & song for her talent. She and Burke both won ribbons in several decorated bicycle contests. In October, JonBenet become Little Miss Colorado, she rode on the “Good Ship Lollipop” float during the Boulder Christmas parade. (Grandpa Paugh built the float!) She waved and sang all along the parade route! She also takes piano, violin, and drama classes. Busy little Pre-kindergartener![sic] (Busy Mom hauling her around!)
I continue to have good check-ups at NIH in Bethesda, MD. God has surely blessed me with energy and the ability to return to raising a family. I thank Him every morning when I wake up and see the sunrise reflecting on the Flatirons over Boulder. Please continue to keep us in your prayers.
Hope your Christmas was merry and here’s to 1996! By the time you read this we’ll be cheering on the Buffs at the Cotton Bowl in Dallas and then on to the Fiesta Bowl in Phoenix! Thanks to everyone who visited us in Colorado or Charlevoix this year. Please come see us in 1996! Love to you all!
The Ramseys

December, 1995 JonBenet rides along in Boulder’s annual Christmas parade as Little Miss Colorado. Her grandfather crafted the “Good Ship Lollipop” float especially for her.

  Christmas Eve
Posted by: jameson245 - 09-20-2018, 12:24 PM - Forum: Ramsey holiday plans 1996 - No Replies

   


Nestled in the foothills of the Rocky Mountains, a giant Christmas star made up of holiday lights shines for nearly two months. It has become a beloved tradition amongst residents of Boulder. After the Christmas Eve service and dinner at their favorite restaurant, the Ramsey family piled into their car to tour around Boulder for Christmas lights. Everyone was filled with the holiday spirit. They oohed and aahed over all of the beautiful displays as Christmas music played on the radio.

As the Ramseys made their way through Boulder, they drove up to where the famous star shines. JonBenet begged her parents to make a pit stop. She wanted everyone to get out of the car so they could walk up the side of the mountain and stand in the middle of the star. Her parents said no; it would be too much of a mess with everyone was still dressed in their Christmas mass finery. Next year, Patsy attempted to assure her daughter, they would come fully prepared with snow boots.
JonBenet was not pleased with this decision, and replied, “Well, what’s the use of coming up here if we’re not going to stand in the middle of the star?”

Posted by: jameson245 - 09-20-2018, 12:14 PM - Forum: Pam and Kristine Griffin - No Replies

To help better prepare her daughter for pageants, Patsy hired a coach for JonBenet. She asked Pam Griffin, the seamstress who created JonBenet’s custom pageant outfits, if her daughter, Kristine, would be interested. Kristine, who was a beauty queen herself and a senior in high school at the time, agreed. Using the makeshift runway in the Griffin’s basement, she taught JonBenet how to properly do a pageant walk and poses on stage. In between practices they would take a break to play video games. The two quickly felt more like sisters rather than a coach and student.

One day, while Kristine was visiting the Ramsey’s house, JonBenet decided that instead of practising to be a pageant star, she would take on the role of match maker. John Andrew, JonBenet’s oldest brother, was visiting home to help John paint a room, and JonBenet thought he and Kristine would make the perfect couple. The little girl interrupted the lesson to announce this to Kristine. She was determined to make it happen. Giggling, JonBenet grabbed her coach by the hand and tried to drag her out to meet John Andrew. Despite Kristine’s amused protests, JonBenet persisted, at least until Kristine was finally able to distract her.

  BORG - huh?
Posted by: jameson245 - 09-20-2018, 10:58 AM - Forum: Misinformation found elsewhere, not BORG but wrong - Replies (1)

"Since JonBenet was not actually kidnapped and there was no effort to collect ransom"  - the author of that page feels that is evidence against the parents.  I would ask how logic makes that evidence against the parents.  Has any other parent killed their child and left the note AND body in the same location?  How, in BORG minds, does that make more sense than an intruder doing it?

Same author adds this thought:   "JonBenet's hair being tied into a knot behind her head is difficult and illogical for an intruder to do on a living, resisting child."

WHAT???  It makes more sense for a PARENT to do that?  

JonBenet was killed by a vicious predator  There is no evidence her parents would, could or did do this.
