    ^ You're welcome!
    I love the way she talks. She's kind of interviewing Dr. Spock.

    ^ I have always wondered if Joe Kennedy approved of her- she certainly brought some class into the family, and she had the finest of manners and social bearing...I think she only could have helped John's career...^_^

    I've read that Joe adored her and they would sit and listen to classical music whilst everyone else played football and he recognized how important someone of her class and elegance was for the family and their image. Rose Kennedy didn't like her or Jacks sisters, they called her "the deb" for her debutante background.

    ^ Well, you could be many worse things than "The Deb"! If I recall correctly, she was considered the mythical "Number One Deb" the year she came out...Too bad they used that as a pejorative term- I myself would see that as a compliment!! ;)

    ^ Indeed. Her background is envious imo. Not too many people out there with the pedigree she has and the class to back it up.

    Each other’s darlings. “Aboard Air Force One, Jacqueline had accidentally referred to him as “Lyndon” and quickly apologized, promising not to make the error in protocol again. ‘Honey,’ Johnson replied, ‘I hope you’ll call me that for the rest of your life.’”

    I read she once tried to hide a cigarette from her mother by throwing it inthe couch and it set it on fire. Don't know if that's true but it's funny.

    ^ Her grace during tragedy set the tone for the whole country that horrible weekend after John was killed...has a woman in the public eye ever set a better example of courage and strength? The whole country, if not the world, was in awe of her from that time on... :flower:

    I just saw a commercial on TLC for a show they are airing called 'Kennedys' Home Movies'. I believe it will be on Sunday January 30th but I can't find anything online about it. But I've seen the commercial twice now, I just keep forgetting the date!

    I can't edit my last post but I just want to say that you're correct on the date. The time is 9/8c ( But no wonder you couldn't remember the date it was a black background and the time was in dark grey, I could barely see it!)

    I'm glad you found the time, I can't wait. And I'm kinda glad that special with Kaie Holmes got canned, well atleast for now.
