BOBO'S WASHINGTON DC VACATION PAGE 4
Updated: June 17, 1998
If I didn't know better, I'd think Bobo wanted to join the military. First
he pretended to lead the Korean troops, and now he escorts this high ranking
officer by riding in his hat while he scouts out the area. I don't think
you have to worry though. I hear the armed forces have minimum height
Bobo couldn't resist taking the subway under the Potomac River to go see
the incredibly beautiful, and incredibly LARGE Iwo Jima memorial. Probably
the favourite of both Bobo and his master, we sat for quite a long time
in awe of this wonderful sculpture.
And here is the beginning of the end of this vacation. Bobo REALLY wanted
to meet President Clinton. However, the lineup to take the tour was WAY
too long, and his efforts to become an Ambassador from Canada were rejected,
so, Bobo had to resort to more illicit ways to meet the President. That's
right, Bobo used his size to his advantage, and slipped between the bars of
the gate protecting the White House. Well, almost . . . . .
For you see, before Bobo could get very far into the grounds, Bobo got
busted. Here you can see Bobo getting a talking to from a very nice officer
of the United States Park Police, accompanied by his trusty animal sidekick,
Skye the horse. Fortunately, the officer holding Bobo decided that he
wanted to avoid an international incident if Bobo promised to leave the
city immediately. And, wanting to leave before the officer did a background
check for outstanding warrants, Bobo complied, and dragged his master back
to Canadian soil.
So, once again, we find ourselves at the end of another journey. Bobo and
Jeremy would like to thank everyone who helped make this possible. Jan and
Jacquie at Thrify Rental Car, Mitch (our travelling companion), the United
States Park Police Horse Skye, for not mistaking Bobo as a salt lick.
Bobo would NOT like to thank the guards at the F.B.I. for not having a sense
of humour with getting their picture taken.
And lastly, I would like to thank everyone for dropping by, and sharing
yet another vacation with us. If you have any comments or suggestions, you
can always reach either of us at
firstname.lastname@example.org. So until next time . . . .
