PORTLAND, Maine (AP) - Former President George H.W. Bush says his wife is getting fed up with his flashy socks, so he's donated a bright pair with a cactus theme to a church fundraiser.

The Roman Catholic Diocese of Portland says the socks that Bush wore in a photo last month with former President Bill Clinton in Kennebunkport, Maine, will be auctioned off Oct. 26 at its Harvest Ball.

The socks include a letter of authenticity in which Bush wrote: "I absolutely love a crazy pair of socks. Barbara, on the other hand, has had enough."

The Harvest Ball helps sustain the diocese's Harvest magazine. The free magazine has a readership of about 70,000 in Maine.
