Busy Turkey Day for the President

President Bush had a busy day at his Texas ranch, where more than a dozen relatives and pets were visiting for the holiday. A spokesman says the president started the day with a three mile run -- probably in anticipation of the hearty meal ahead. He also took a walk around the property with relatives, went fishing with his father, and took a drive with his mother and his wife.

With the president, first lady Laura Bush, and his parents are twin daughters Barbara and Jenna, Bush's brothers Marvin and Neil, Marvin's wife Margaret, and an assortment of nephews. There're also presidential pooches Barney and Spot, and first feline Willie.

The family's feast included turkey, green beans, stuffing, and two kinds of pie. Bush is returning to Washington on Sunday.
