I tried to send the link, but couldn't make it work. I was reading an article on NPR.org this morning. It mentioned Dana Carvey, the Saturday Night Live comedian who used to do a pretty funny impression of the 41st President. Apparently, they became great friends. The President invited Carvey to "roast" him at a gathering after Bush 41 lost his second bid for the office. Carvey described how he came up with the impression he did. He said you start out with Mr. Rogers - 'it's a beautiful day in the neighborhood' - and toss in some John Wayne. Then you have George Herbert Walker Bush. That description seems pretty spot on & it made me smile. The NPR.org site has some well written & interesting articles on the man we may not have known so well. Nothing lurid. Just filling out the limited view the general public has of anyone famous.

ETA: The article even speaks of his love of wild, colorful socks! That is what caught my eye in the first place!

Lovely to read about George H. W. Bush! I didn't know he loved wild socks! A great guy. I didn't agree with him politically, but he was a mensch, a human being, who cared.
