Bush Donates Wild Socks to Charity

The Roman Catholic Diocese of Portland says the socks that Bush wore in a photo with former President Clinton in Kennebunkport last month will be auctioned on Oct. 26 at its Harvest Ball.

PORTLAND, Maine (AP) _ Former President George H.W. Bush says his wife is getting fed up with his flashy socks. So he's donated an exceptional pair of bright, cactus-themed socks to charity.

The Roman Catholic Diocese of Portland says the socks that Bush wore in a photo with former President Clinton in Kennebunkport last month will be auctioned on Oct. 26 at its Harvest Ball.

The socks include a letter of authenticity in which Bush wrote: ``I absolutely love a crazy pair of socks.'' Unfortunately, he wrote that, ``Barbara, on the other hand, has had enough.''

The Harvest Ball helps to sustain Harvest, the magazine of the Diocese of Portland. The magazine is sent free of charge to an estimated readership of 70,000 in the state.
