This will be posted in a couple of different places.
If it is a repeat for you simply deleted the extra copies.
First of all, I was right the first time concerning the spelling of First Lady Johnson’s name in the title of this book.
What threw me was her mentioning in the book how she at one time spelled Bird, as Byrd.
But honestly, that’s such a miner thing in the scheme of things that it’s barely worth mentioning.
I do so now, simply because I hate when I make mistakes in things I write about.
What I really want to talk about here is how magnificent this book is and all the wonderful things I’ve learned.
The one thing that truly speaks to me is how much Lady Bird seems to enjoy being First Lady.
Oh, she doesn’t enjoy the glam, doesn’t enjoy the fact that sometimes the press picks apart every little thing that is said and done by she and her family but it is quite evident that she takes pride and pleasure in a lot of the work she is able to do.
It is also quite evident to me that she expects a lot of herself, is quite hard on herself if she makes mistakes and is always looking for ways to improve upon what she and others around her do.
She supports her husband and it appears was the driving force in his seeking re-election.
I’m not near done with this wonderful piece of reading but felt I had to come back and speak more about it.
So, again I ask, what are you reading these days?
To those who have answered, thanks heaps. To the rest, let’s hear from you.
Learning about you and those things you enjoy will lead to my knowing what types of things might be good to provide in things like my blog, my magazine and my own personal writing.
Well, I’m off to see what the day holds.
Still battling some sickness and so probably going to curl back up with my book after a while.
For now, this is Patty saying…
May Harmony find You and Blessid Be.
