What Might Have Been - Anything Was Possible

Boy, were we sold a bill of goods--life was going to be a bowl of cherries.  The Sound of Music...Breakfast at Tiffany's. 

This photo just surfaced from a German private collection.  It's a fine, scarce color picture taken about 1959, just before we put them in the White House and launched them toward their date with destiny in Dallas.

Perhaps you saw them like I did…a nearly perfect couple.  Beautiful wife, handsome husband, pretty child, wealth., mobility…just about perfect.  It lasted for just 4-years after this photo was taken.

So, how has your life gone?  Smooth sailing all the way?  Or have there been some twists and turns?  I’m betting on the twists and turns.  Perfection is pretty tough.
