HOUSTON -- One of Texas' most famous residents turned 89 on Wednesday. Happy birthday to former President George H.W. Bush!
A Bush spokesman says the former president will celebrate with his family at their summer home in Kennebunkport, Maine.
Bush’s wife, Barbara, turned 88 years old last Saturday. Relatives will help the couple mark both birthdays.
Meanwhile at the Bush Library in College Station, a socks celebration has been planned. Visitors are encouraged to wear "exuberant socks" Wednesday. Bush in recent years has taken to wearing colorful socks in public.
