Frank came in for some criticism during the course of his Eastern Presidency about his lack of fashion, preferring to visit the Mall and buy whatever was there, rather than having his suits handmade. He was never destined to win with that place, was he?

March 13 1964, Arizona: Wally (furthest away, with the hat protecting his precious mane) and lovely Ed learn intently about lunar geology, while Frank, who couldn’t give a rat’s ass, takes a nap.

Nice little video of the Apollo 8 crew presenting LBJ with Earthrise and flown items, January 1969. 

Edit: Frank’s joke about the photo of ‘the ranch’, was typical of Frank’s dry sense of humor, regarding LBJ’s large Texas ranch where he spent a large amount of time during his Presidency rather than being at the WH. Yes, Frank mocked the President in front of the President.
