The first presidential campaign that I have any real memory or was the 1972 campaign of George McGovern vs. Richard Nixon. Not that I was old enough to vote but I was aware of some of the issue. I remember in my classroom there was a board for each candidate but it was obvious that my teacher, Sister Helen Agnes was pro McGovern!
I was sad to see that Senator McGovern passed away this weekend. He may not have won that election but he did play a major role in social change in the 60's and 70's.
I was able to get out for a bit yesterday. Visited an antique store and picked up a couple of vintage handkerchiefs and a dollbed...the handkerchief may end up in a pillow and the dollbed just needs a little quilt!
Hope to get back to sewing this week....Goldie is doing a great job of keeping me company and is already dressed for tonight debates....
