Containing Multitudes Since 2004
I still remember Lady Bird on the back of this train as it went through my small town. She waved and threw me a couple of postcards and matchbooks as she passed. It was easy to spot me as nobody else was near me. It seems that her husband's stance on civil rights didn't endear him to many in small southern towns. Today I am amazed that she took the time to come out on the platform to wave - but I'm glad she did. I stll have the mementos.
I'd never get rid of them. How amazing.
Ladybird is a true Texas treasure! :o)
I loved it when LBJ would pick her up by the ears.
Did she say, "Plant a tree, a bush or a shrub"?
