Throwback Thursday

My father attended the inauguration of President John F. Kennedy. I remember he took a train to DC and it was really really cold. The rest of the memorabilia is at my son’s house.

This is one of the buttons he brought home as a souvenir.

  1. Hesh and I attended Barak Obama’ second inauguration. I have 2 small American Flags that were given out. It was cold but so exciting!

  2. So nice your father was able to attend and you have souvenir’s to remember his trip. I can just imagine how excited he was to head out to DC and experience something that exciting. You have so many great memories and history of your family. Thanks for sharing Ruth.

  3. What an experience, now part of your family’s history. I don’t think I’ve ever watched an Inauguration as closely as I watched yesterday’s. It was beautiful and powerful and lovely. Even without the massive crowds.

Thanks for your visit. It's always good to hear you stopped by.
