John F. Kennedy and MG

I posted this in the "T" forum but I thought I would post it here also.
In honor of the 50th anniversary of the death of JFK I thought I would post this picture of JFK and Jackie on their honeymoon in Acapulco, Mexico.
http://www.jfklibrary.org/Asset-Viewer/HDtHVo3PHkO9ma6Ki4Bk-Q.aspx
According to what I have read, They flew to Acapulco and had planned a two week vacation but Jackie got antsy and they stayed only two days. So, who's TD was this?

Anise? Anise is a licorice tasting herb sometimes used for morning sickness I thought. Is there a usage I'm unfamiliar with? Maybe that's Fidel's MG.

Amazing. I had never thought about it before but they were only married for a little over 10 years. For an old geezer who has been married for over 50 years now, that wasn't very long for them to have had a life together.

With that kind of photo documentation I wonder how much that MG would be worth on Pawn Stars?

Yeah, Andrew -

I knew about Chuck's affliction. I named my '72 after Camilla. Frankly, I think she's a Hot Babe!

Didja know Carrol Shelby's first racer was a TC?

Camilla - Call me... winking smiley

It's crass to discuss money.

How is that crass? Carroll Shelby was at the auction when it was offered.

I'm just pointing out a fact.

No harm, no foul, James. The smiley faces sure make a difference in how a post comes across.

Cheers
