A Few Lady Bird Thoughts

  • Every child of Texas that had to take a long spring or summer road trip owes her a bit of thanks for making that ride more pleasing to the eye.  There’s nothing like spring time in Texas as the bluebonnets begin to bloom.
  • One may think she was the longest living first lady since she died at the age of 94, but that distinction belongs to Bess Truman who died at the age of 97 in 1982.
  • She was protected by the Secret Service longer than anyone in history.  It wasn’t until 1997 that a law was made that limits Secret Service protection for a former president and his or her family to 10 years, unless an acting president decides to extend that duration.  On a side note, President Bush will be protected by 103 full-time Secret Service agents starting in January 2009.  Source
