imageMom loved Barney Bush. Barney loved golf balls and volleyballs;  it was rumored that he enjoyed watching a game of horseshoes but balls were his favorite.  He was the main star of the White House’s Christmas videos during the Bush administration and featured in many other Barneycam films along with Miss Beazley, his niece, who arrived in 2005.  Both of them battled lymphoma and have since crossed the Bridge. However, they remain part of presidential history in the archives:  Here they are on the White House lawn as Barney explains the rules of ball to the newcomer.  Below are my Brother and me.  He is not explaining anything. ~ Lucy
