Happy birthday # 93 President Bush
Pres. GHW Bush is 93 today and he looks great. I guess that all of those years of jogging have paid off for the former president.
Here is a big part of the GHW Bush story:
After the war, Bush married Barbara and headed for Texas. He became a successful businessman and later went into politics.
Happy birthday Pres. Bush! I was very proud to vote for you in 1988 and 1992!
Thank you for your war service and everything else!
