But this summer, something is missing from the picture.For the first time in memory, Rose Kennedy is no longer a presence in the village her family thrust into the international spotlight.

Wherever Alvin T. Jones has lived throughout his adult life, he has reserved wall space for his Navy memorabilia. He displays his three Air Medals and his Distinguished Flying Cross, his honorable discharge, dated 1945, and a wedding photo of a young uniformed sailor and his bride. Another photo shows Jones in the center of the 10-member crew of a B-24 bomber. At 89, he recalls the name and assignment of each man posing in 1944 in front of that plane. Most notably, he recalls his pilot, Joseph P. Kennedy Jr., the smiling young man holding a puppy in the picture.

KATHLEEN K. Townsend is a Kennedy and there's nothing she can do about that. But she could have skipped that $2,000-a-head Hyannis Port party last month - the $4,000-a-plate one two summers ago, with chocolate mousse boats and white-chocolate sails bearing KKT's initials, was bad enough - and maybe she could chill on the out-of-state fund raising and the cocktail parties at Uncle Teddy's house. If I were advising this woman - and who isn't these days? - I'd tell her to lay off the lobster-and-Chablis fetes because those events come with a pretty high gag factor among the Great Unwashed.

HYANNIS PORT, Mass. -- Under a perfect summer sky, onto a perfect narrow country lane they walked, between pink roses, orange lilies and an impossibly lush bounty of blue hydrangeas. First the guests -- about 80 of them in all -- stopped for drinks on Ethel Kennedy's porch. Then they followed a path alongside Sen. Edward M. Kennedy's house and onto his famous lawn, where a peaked white tent tucked under the dune awaited them. Just beyond that, rocking lightly in the calm blue water, Uncle Teddy's sailboat joined a few dozen others to create a scene of almost cliched seaside beauty.

Picture-perfect presidency Take a picture, it'll last longer – much longer than any president's stay in the White House. A recent exhibit at the National Geographic Museum is proof. With dozens of stunning photographs, "The President's Photographer: 50 Years in the Oval Office" was expected to be open just a few weeks last fall but has since been extended to May 1 because of its popularity. The exhibit features the work of nine White House photographers and is based on a National Geographic television special and book.
