Kathy got up early this morning to catch the sunrise at the Gerald R. Ford Presidential Museum in Grand Rapids.

Today is President Ford’s birthday – he’s 93. According to Wikipedia:

Gerald Rudolph Ford, Jr. (born July 14, 1913 as Leslie Lynch King, Jr.) was the 38th (1974–1977) President of the United States and the 40th (1973–1974) Vice President. He was the first person appointed to the Vice-Presidency under the terms of the 25th Amendment, and upon succession to the presidency became the first (and to date, only) President in U.S. history to fill that office without having been elected either President or Vice President.

The Wikipedia page has tons of information about Ford, along with speeches and pictures like this one of a young Gerry Ford and his dog (you wouldn’t think a 5 year old could look like Ford, but there you go). You can also see over 100 images of President Gerald Ford in the Library of Congress and there are some neat pics on this bio at the Library /Museum site too!

    Yesterday a great nation paid homage to its beloved 38th president, who with stedfastness and courage led the nation through a very difficult time in american history. For me i remember his presidency and i think that he performed his job well, we will not as a nation forget him but remember him for all that he did during his years in office.
    respectully.
