I had to laugh when I saw this photo of Laura Bush with a caption stating that “Laura Bush speaks with an unidentified man”. I’m surprised that they didn’t say speaking with an unidentified man – and another unidentified man that looks just like him. I guess these reporters aren’t Antiques Roadshow fans.
Laura Bush will be hosting a History Channel special on November 26th titled, “The White House: Behind Closed Doors”. She’ll be providing viewers tours of various rooms and providing some history lessons on the White House along the way.
At first, Mrs. Bush voiced misgivings to her husband, telling him, “I’m not so wild about Victorian furniture,” but he was sold on it. “He said, ‘Oh, no, I want to have Grant’s furniture in my office!'”
I suspect that we may get some glimpses of some Victorian-era furniture during the program.
