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)
September 1969, Joan & her two boys - Teddy & Patrick. This pic was used for a Good Housekeeping cover and article. I don’t know if they colored the picture because Teddy actually had bright blonde hair and Joan has green - not blue - eyes. Best quality I’ve found so far !
But hysterical anti-marijuana organizations like S.A.M. and D.A.R.E. can be a real hoot to make fun of!
Alcohol addiction saturates our culture. Tobacco (nicotine addiction) kills more people than all other drugs combined. But let’s be honest: marijuana “addiction” is primarily a propaganda campaign generated by financially-motivated political organizations with no interest in public health.
This artwork was done on behalf of MPP, which opposes S.A.M.
Very sweet photo that Patrick shared on doctor Sanjay Gupta’s show. I’d say that this was around 77-78, because of Joan’s hair length (and because of Patrick’s appearance!). Joan was always there to give affection to her children when they needed it the most.
1994, Joansie is so proud of her youngest son :) I think Joan & Patrick share a special bond. He is now the one who cares for her, choosing not to run for a third term as a US representative for Rhode Island because he thinks his mom’s well-being and safety is more important ♥
This is why Patrick is my fave Kennedy from the third generation. He is a very caring person and seems to possess a very rare quality among the Kennedy men (hell, the Kennedy family) : introspection. He got it from his mama ! :)
