I thought it would interesting to delve into some history of our past presidents. They all have had interesting stories told about them, some true and probably some not so true. Some came from relatively unknown families, but most had a family history of either politics, or some other occupation that was highly visible to the public.
Take President Franklin Roosevelt for example. FDR was related to William Howard Taft, Theodore Roosevelt, Benjamin Harrison, Ulysses S. Grant, Zachary Taylor, William Henry Harrison, Martin Van Buren, John Quincy Adams, James Madison, John Adams, and George Washington. Seems strange, but FDR and his relatives controlled the presidency for about one-third of its existence.
How many remember Reagan? and his Reaganizms? I, personally, liked him and enjoyed listening to him. But, there have been times when his actions were just plain laughable. For instance, one such time was when he and Nancy (both of which, by the way, had multiple face lifts) attended church at an Episcopal church service in Virginia. As they were about to take communion, Nancy asked Mike Deaver, "Are those people drinking out of the same cup?" He had to explain to her that they would be given wafers first and they would dip it into the cup. President Reagan couldn't hear those instructions and was asking "What? What?" To which Nancy responded , "Ron, just do exactly as I do." As the wafers were passed by she took one, dipped it in the chalice, and accidentally dropped it in the wine. Reagan promptly took his wafer, dipped it, and dropped it into the wine as well. The preacher moved on, shaking his head, and staring at the blobs of gunk floating in his wine.
I guess it shows that even presidents are human and some more than others. It is cold (upper 30's) and raining. Not a good day to be out walking, so will stay in most of the day. Now, you all stay dry and warm and have a great day, you hear?
