I remember Lyndon Johnson for his pretty daughters, Lucy and Lynda as well as his beagles, Him and Her.
Mr Nixon is remembered for his historic trip to China as well as his resignation in light of Watergate.
Mr Ford took over as president and brought his good looking children to the White House. SNL poked fun at Mr Ford's clumsiness. I remember laughing at Chevy Chase as he portrayed the president.
As a Georgian we were very proud to have a president from our state when Jimmy Carter won the office. Sadly his legacy is being remembered as one of the worst presidents. I do admire his work for Habitat for Humanity.( The first Presidential Election that I voted in so it was exciting to me.)
Reagan....Jelly Bellys and his brush with death are some of my clearest memories of this president. He was another president who was put down by the media as an "actor". He showed he was much more than that and easily won re election.
Bush Sr...a gracious man and his lovely wife, Barbara. I really liked Barbara for her embracing the Silver Fox look when so many women were avoiding gray tresses. And Barbara Bush Blue, one of my favorite colors.
Clinton....There are so many things I remember about him but I will just keep them to myself.
George H W Bush...I will never forget how he steered us in the days after 9-11. Laura was another favorite first wife of mine. One Christmas she decorated the White House with a Children's Book Theme. I loved that she was a reader!!
Obama, not my favorite president but I do think he was a good husband and father and there is a lot to be said for that in this day and age.
Donald Trump ....I wish him well. I was a fan of The Apprentice when he starred in that tv program. He was always fair and he did not put up with whining. I think the one of the biggest problems we face in this culture is Whining. Nothing is our fault and if we do not get our way we act like little children. As my parents used to say, "Buck UP!"
Presidents come and go...our country has survived them all.
So I will be stitching and watching the ceremonies today. Do you have any memories of certain Commanders in Chief? I would love to hear them.
