A day in the life of President Bush (photos): 6/15/03
yahoo.com, whitehouse.gov

Posted on 06/15/2003 6:00:39 PM PDT by rintense

President Bush continued his long weekend in Kennebunkport, Maine today, and celebrated Father's Day with his family. Bush made a brief appearance for reporters, and stated that he still believed there is hope for peace in the Mideast, but that the free world 'must deal harshly with Hamas and the killers.' Enjoy your daily dose of Dubya!

Happy Father's Day Mike, and to all other Dad's out there (and to the Mr.'s of all you Bush Babes).

Thank you to all of you who have wished me (and the others) a Happy Father's Day. It has been one.

You know how the server was down? As soon as I got to FR after dinner, it kicked me off, and I haven't been able to get on since now. It looks like I was missing a lot of good pictures too.

That is the most gorgeous sunset I've seen in awhile. And we get some pretty good ones here in Arizona.

I imagine the President and Mrs. Bush can't wait to get to their ranch so they can start enjoying these sunsets together.

I know Jim was trying to fix something with one of the harddrives, but he said he would be finished by 7. So I get on at 7:15 and get kicked off. I'm happy that things look to be fixed around here, though.

Gramms, I did the same thing. Refresh, refresh, refresh.....

Good night ohio, sleep tight.

Sounds great....

Situated on three-and-a-half acres of meadows, the Arundel Meadows Inn is backed by lawn chairs which look out on flower gardens, grazing horses and rolling fields. The Kennebunk River runs along its southern border. The Inn is a half-hour drive from Maine's largest city, Portland, and some 45 minutes from Freeport, Maine.

This 165-year-old farmhouse combines the charm of antiques and art with the comfort of seven individually decorated bedrooms -- two are suites, three have fireplaces and all have private bathrooms. All guest rooms offer comfortable sitting areas for reading and relaxing and are decorated with art and antiques collected both locally and around the world.

The full buffet breakfasts are prepared by co-owner Mark Bachelder, who is a professional chef trained by internationally known teacher, author and television personality Madeleine Kamman. Each morning, breakfast includes fresh juice, fresh fruit compote, freshly baked pastries and various other inn specialties.

The Inn is a five-mile drive from the Kennebunk Beach and the town of Kennebunkport, home of former President George Bush. Excellent year-round restaurants, antique dealers, art galleries and shops of all kinds, from over a hundred discount stores to New England artisans, are all within a short drive from the Inn. There are several beaches within easy access, and two excellent golf courses are located in the immediate area.

The Arundel Meadows Inn offers spring and summer guests picnic areas in the meadows, flower gardens through which to stroll and lots of room for lounging, sun bathing and sipping afternoon tea. In the fall, foliage viewing is readily available, and winter means a crackling fire in the living room fireplace to welcome guests back from their cross-country skiing. Year 'round, there's plenty of hiking, shopping and just plain relaxing.

This has capped of a great Father's Day. Just seeing these two guys together- a dad and son, just like so many others, doing what they do best- being a daddy and his boy. I have always admired both of these guys (41 was the first Presidential vote I ever cast, 43 being the first Gubernatorial vote I ever cast) and seeing them together sharing time together is more validation of why I admire them. I don't have a son, but if I did I'd hope to be able to spend some "guy time" with him just like 41 and 43.

I lurk a lot, post every now and then, and it has been a long time since I have thanked you for doing this, night after night, week after week, month after month, for an 8 year run! I know the time commitment this takes, and believe me, we do get something out of your efforts. I think I can say that your daddy would be proud of your commitment to your friends here and to your President.

Ok...I am going to go fix a hot bath and read in the tub for a while. Good night!

Great grouping of pictures btw. Together they really tell a story, don't they? LOL!

I remember 41 being something of a "Gerald Ford" on the golf course- I remember him hitting an errant ball into a crowd once. Apparently 43 knows this too.

The President looked particularly handsome at Church this morning, love the suit and tie.
The fishing pictures are fantastic. I love the one with his Dad leaning over him with his own pole! So cute together. Where was Laura in the pictures at Church I wonder?

Not including the cool weather and the ice treatment you got from the SS guy, it sounds like you had a good trip. So, did you keep walking while you were taking pictures, or did you actually stop and take them? You can tell me, I promise I won't rat you out to the SS guys.

That's okay that you didn't get any Dubya photos. I'm sure the others will turn out amazingly. You must ping me when you post them.

Thanks for taking this trip and getting the pictures. You're awesome.

I know what look you are talking about.

I toured the White House in 87. My 2 yo son got away from me and dashed beyond the ropes to start down a side hallway. He was promply scooped up and handed back to me. I was informed that "it had better not happen again", with the look. Gulp! I almost saluted the guy. Needless to say my son was carried the rest of the tour.
