    I think I may have posted this topic before, (back in the day), but how many Presidents have you lived with?

    For me:

    Eisenhower (barely), Kennedy, Johnson, Nixon, Ford, Carter, Reagan, Bush I, Clinton, Bush II, Obama, Trump, Biden

    Total: 13

    14 for me, Truman, Eisenhower, Kennedy, Johnson, Nixon,
    Ford, Carter, Reagan, Bush, Clinton, Bush Jr, Obama, Trump, and now Biden. I voted for the fist time in 68, when Nixon was President. I was 19.

    I was born seven months into Eisenhower’s Presidency, so Biden will make 13 for me. I first voted for McGovern in 1972.(He only won Massachusetts and D.C. for a grand total of 17 electoral votes! Nixon got 47,000 votes to McGovern’s 29,000.) The legal voting age had just been lowered to 18 by constitutional amendment. Not long before that, there was a popular song, “L-U-V(Let Us Vote)”.

    Jimmy Carter is the only former president still alive who was in office before I was born.

    10 for me, I was born a couple months after the Watergate break-ins.

    Carter is the first president I remember, George H.W. Bush was the first one I voted for (1992).

    My 99 and 2/3 year-old mother-in-law is moving soon from Anacortes down here to our home in Newberg to live with us. She was born back when presidential inaugurations were still held in March and not January. Since her birth was in mid-February 1921, she arrived about three weeks before Wilson handed things over to Harding. So… her count of presidents will be 19 (assuming the media’s call for Biden is eventually confirmed and challenges are dismissed). That full list is: Wilson, Harding, Coolidge, Hoover, FDRoosevelt, Truman, Eisenhower, Kennedy, Johnson, Nixon, Ford, Carter, Reagan, Bush I, Clinton, Bush II, Obama, Trump and Biden.

    Silent Cal shouldn’t have been so silent. The stock market might not have crashed!

    I was born during one of the Garfield administrations – can’t remember which one!

    There was only one Garfield administration and it was just six months long, interrupted by him being assassinated. It appears that you were born in 1881! You hold your age well.
