George H.W. Bush gives flashy socks to charity

Posted: Updated:
PORTLAND, Maine -

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 a church fundraiser.
    
The Roman Catholic Diocese of Portland says the socks that Bush wore in a photo with former President Bill Clinton in Kennebunkport, Maine, last month will be auctioned off 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 ... Barbara, on the other hand, has had enough."
    
The Harvest Ball helps sustain the diocese's Harvest magazine. The magazine, sent free to its readers, has a readership of about 70,000 in Maine.
