About Lady Bird Johnson

Claudia “Lady Bird” Johnson, the wife of President Lyndon Johnson, is known for her concern for the environment. She was born in Texas in 1912. Johnson asked her to marry him seven weeks after they met. She supported his career by keeping his congressional office running after his heart attack, stumping for Democratic candidates, and visiting 33 countries as his emissary. She founded the Wildflower Research Center and worked to pass the Highway Beautification Act. She lived in Texas until her death in 2007.

A note from me: The Highway Beautification Act comes into play in the sign business often.  The law enables the government to limit the amount of billboards and other signage that can be placed on certain highways.  Even though I own a sign shop, I still think this is a good thing.

    LOL. I love your quote for today, Beth! I think that is where you and I are with our painting.

    Neon green boxing shorts and matching gloves. Your whimsical paintings are not boring as you seem to want me to believe. 🙂
