Animal Story number 1:
Last July I went to Alaska. One of the places I went to was Homer - and I went on to what was called The Spit - a little spit off of Homer. It was beautiful there and I wrote all about it in my blog - and if you want to read it - go back to my July blogs.
So right off the Spit there was a cute little house on the left. Blue with white trim. I found out it was the house of the Eagle Lady - Jean Keene. One of the fascinating characters of Alaska. You can read a little about her here. Got to tell you - it's a very interesting story....
While we love eagles some people in Alaska think of them as scavengers.
Claudia Alta "Lady Bird" Taylor Johnson - Happy Birthday - Wikipedia
Her goal of a career in media was deferred when a friend in Austin introduced her to Lyndon Baines Johnson, a young up-and-coming political hopeful working as an aide to Congressman Richard Kleberg.
On their first date, which was breakfast the next morning at the Driskill Hotel and a long drive in the country, Johnson proposed. Lady Bird did not want to rush into marriage, but Lyndon Johnson was persistent and did not want to wait. Lady Bird accepted his proposal 10 weeks later. The couple married on November 17, 1934 at St. Mark's Episcopal Church in San Antonio, Texas.
After three miscarriages, the couple had two daughters: Lynda and Luci. The couple and their two daughters all shared the initials LBJ. At the time of her death, Johnson had seven grandchildren and ten great-grandchildren.
