'Crazy socks' dress code at Bush bash

Texans have marked the 90th birthday of George H W Bush with a crazy socks party.

The former US President is well-known for wearing unusual socks and invitees to the George Bush Presidential Library and Museum in College Station were asked to wear the silliest socks they can find to celebrate his birthday - and that of his wife Barbara, who was 89 on Sunday.

The family had their own party at the Bushes' summer retreat at Kennebunkport in Maine.

The couple, who live in Houston for most of the year, enjoyed free cake and ice cream at the museum.

Those who were unable to make it might like to create their own pair of socks for the former President. The HappyBirthday41.com website allows users to make their own sock designs and show them off on the KPRC Local 2 Facebook page.
