“How is your kitten? As naughty as the one on this card?” asked Danielle. Answer – YES!

 I hadn’t realised Lady Bird Johnson was so attractive.

Claudia Alta "Lady Bird" Taylor Johnson (December 22, 1912 – July 11, 2007)[1] was First Lady of the United States (1963–69) during the presidency of her husband Lyndon B. Johnson. Notably well educated for her time, she proved a capable manager and a shrewd investor. After marrying LBJ in 1934, when he was a political hopeful in Austin, Texas, she used a modest inheritance to bankroll his congressional campaign, and then ran his office while he was serving in the navy. Next, she bought a radio station and then a TV station, which would soon make them millionaires. As First Lady, she broke new ground by interacting directly with Congress, employing her own press secretary, and making a solo electioneering tour. Johnson was a lifelong advocate for beautifying the nation's cities and highways ("Where flowers bloom, so does hope") and the Highway Beautification Act was informally known as Lady Bird's Bill. She was a recipient of the Presi-dential Medal of Freedom and the Congressional Gold Medal, the highest US civilian honors.

Welcome. I love it when visitors comment - even if it's only to say "Hi, I've been here!"
