Lion of the Senate ~ Ted Kennedy

Ask me about Ted Kennedy   I just love anything to do with the Kennedys but my attentions are focused on Ted Kennedy and his family. Ted was always overshadowed by his brothers but his achievements in the Senate more that proved he was worthy of more recognition.

SEE I TOLD YOU I WOULD FIND A WAY TO GIF IT ! November 13, 1963 - The Black Watch Band and Pipes. I don’t know if Teddy is excited because he sees auntie Jackie or uncle Jack or Caroline :3 I just love watching Kara trying to climb in that first gif haha

I love how Joan looks adoringly at little Patrick and then she’s like woopsie gotta be serious now ! lol ^^

"Where" the journalist asked "did Patrick get that orange hair? You’re blonde and the Senator has brown hair…"
"Everybody asks us that" Joan said with a laugh. "and we didn’t know the answer ‘till last winter, when Ted caught pneumonia. While he was recuperating, he let his beard grow - and, sure enough, it came in reddish !" (1970)

1971, Joan attends a party with her husband. **Requested by america-runs-on-kennedy** - I do not own these pictures -

Anecdote :Joan said people from the press often mistook her for Ethel (?!) : “People look at my stomach and say ‘You have eleven children ?”
