Lunacy

I hesitate to nit-pick such a delightful and historic photo, but the Full Moon face on the Grandfather Clock is not correct. The Full Moon in September 1953 occurred on the 23rd, not the 12th. Maybe someone forgot to wind the clock at the Summer White House.

[This was at Hammersmith Farm in Newport, Rhode Island, more than 7 years before the Kennedys were in the White House, summer or otherwise. -tterrace]

I remember

When these folks were living in the White House it was, to us, a
breath of fresh air and the joy of knowing that some real class
and fairness was running our country. We were really proud of these
folks and it seemed to be ''rubbed-off'' on everybody.
