Did You Know

 Did you know, John Adams was a one term president and basically lost the election because he was against war with France? Who'd a thought, huh. Once out of office, he said he should have become a shoemaker.

Thanks to Denise for helping me get the word out today. AND a belated thank you to Birgit and my sister who were kind enough to post on Facebook.

A wise President back then. What happened four years ago?

And he had a son to carry on his legacy of a single term presidency.

I am pretty certain I would rather be a cobbler than a President too. And no, I didn't know any of this.

Birgit said...

A shoemaker? Hmmm, he must have loved making shoes at one point. You are very welcome!

Jamie Ghione said...

Amazed as always.

Sandra Cox said...

I'm not sure he actually ever made them. He was a farmer, but he ran across one that was singing and appeared happy with his work.

Jeanie said...

I did not know that. And the shoemaker part is interesting!

No doubt in my mind about what my choice would be:) Hint. It wouldn't be president.

Life is stranger than fiction, isn't it, Jamie?

I knew Adams only had one term, but didn't know why he lost.
