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.

1962, Joan manages to hold Kara’s hand, to push Teddy Jr’s pram, to watch the traffic, to walk in heels AND to look very glamorous, all at the same time !

1962, Squaw Island. (1) Joan Kennedy shows daughter Kara piano-playing can be fun. Joan is the official Kennedy song-fest accompanist (2) Joan sits with Kara and Edward Jr. in front of ship models, part of the living room’s nautical decor. (3) Out in the rain - Joan and little Kara frolic on the lawn of their two-story shingle home overlooking Nantucket Sound. Photos from the Associated Press published in the Reading Eagle.

Side note : Aw I think that’s the piano Ted gave Joan for her 25th birthday in 1961 :) And I have never ever seen those pics before !

"Despite being so pretty that little boys stare, Joan Kennedy remains unspoiled. Energy, determination and genuine warmth lie beneath that glamorous surface"
