One Gift Given, One to Go

Sunday, November 5, 2006

President Bush , as any smart husband should, left the campaign trail yesterday in time to celebrate his wife's 60th birthday at the family ranch in Texas. Our colleague Peter Baker reports that the president gave Laura Bush a triple-strand, amber-colored citrine necklace. The low-key dinner included family friends Lois and Roland Betts, Regan and Billy Gammon , Debbie and Jim Francis , and Nancy and Mike Weiss. No word on what the president is giving Mrs. Bush for their 29th wedding anniversary today.
