Eisenhower House, Abilene, KS
Hi there, Hope you are well today. I must say that I had this post completely finished, thought it was saved and blogger (google) had other ideas. LOL!! So I am working on it again. I did walk away for a while, was working on the post way about in Thanksgiving 2019. Don't you get your posts ready ahead of the time you do share them? I do. 'cause I never know what the hubby will have planned, that is one thing I have learned about marriage, you completely throw all you knew as a kid out the window when you marry someone completely different than your Dad!! When I did some research to tell you guys about this amazing President, we were visiting Kansas in Sept. 2019 ...so that was not yesterday, I had to re-jog my brain (memory).
When in school I don't recall ever chatting about this President. Which looking back is extremely sad, he really did a lot or whatnot for our country ...it is not the point of good or bad, I am not making it about my opinion or politic opinion there ... just that during his presidency a lot changed (you make the thought or good or bad, I am telling you about our visit, that is it. I would visit any Presidents home, because I enjoy learning, we have visited most Virginia (not all) lived Presidents since I was a young childhood). I have always been a big fan of Thomas Jefferson, 'cause the man was so tall and had reddish hair. I know might be a silly reason to like someone, but it is true. I tend to like the odd balls. Just love (like) who you wanna love as well.
Dwight David "Ike" Eisenhower was the 34th President between Jan. 20, 1953 - Jan. 20, 1961, this is not word for word, so I don't feel the need to "italicize" it, when that happens here on this blog that mean I am giving credit to someone else. Here I am just lumping a bunch of info all about him into this post. I want to give you a timeline of when he was doing this work within our great nation. His Vice President was Richard Nixon (now that is a President I know a bit more about, he was always in the news and it was a huge deal, I can recall teachers speaking about him.). Maybe what I know most about his presidency is that sticker of "I Like Ike", which I now have a pin to attach to my Christmas every year to recall our trip. Good memory.
Abilene, KS is considered his hometown. I really enjoy this museum within Abilene, KS. So within that house there 8 children live within that house!! Can you imagine, I didn't work with my brother in a household, we always picked on each other with one bathroom. My parents had theirs but we had one between the 2 of us ...he was always like what is she doing in there??! I wondered how it worked to have 8 kids there in one home??! I recall his Mother did make a point to see that all these men (boys) did learn how to cook, take care of the home, how to sew a button on. So cool & Very Smart! I will be sharing more about that area soon enough. Please stay tuned in with me, u will enjoy it, PROMISE!!! Thank you for stopping by. Be Well & Be Blessed!! Beth ( ;
