Well, refreshed and settled in the new neighbourhood it was time to let our presence known.
Yoo hoo MIchelle! Yoo hoo Barack! It's us, Kaf and the girls, we're just out the front. Is this a good time? No?
Don't worry girls, its not us, its all those other bloody tourists hanging around. They don't want to make them jealous.
Oh well, while we're here Madge and I have something to say. Thanks for lending us the lectern. What? You like our ideas and want us to put it in writing? Ok, Madge, you can do that. I've heard rumours of what happened on that desk. I'm not touching anything especially the cigars, I know where they've been!
Now that we have running the country under control, what else is there to see in this place.
How about a memorial? Ok, which one? Korean, Lincoln, Vietnam or Washington? Bugger it, lets do them all.
Respects paid,  Kaf could not help herself and met another man in uniform. He appears to be a bit of a Serious Sam but obviously some men just don't know how to handle Kaf. It certainly appears that he had no such problem with Val although her reputation of being hard to handle has clearly preceded her and he has enlisted two friends to help control her. 
The day also included a viewing of a Wildlife Photo Competition. (Have posted the photo of the orangutans for you, Jegs). and Kaf also found a necklace, perfect for her alter egos birthday present. Anyone? It's next month, if your interested.
Lastly, Kaf took inspiration from Martin Luther Kings wise words in 1963 'Have a Dream". 
Have a dream Martin, Kafs living the dream.
And on that note the day ends back in our new hood. See you tomorrow.

Observation of the day: Squirrels are cute but if you put one of those in your bag with me, there will be hell to pay.

Oops, missed the photo of Kaf and the man himself, Mr Lincoln. Must add, I think Abe has aged a bit better than Kaf in this photo. Hang in there Kaf, you still gotta make it to Vegas.

Ha ha! Thanks, just having a bit of fun. Seemed like a great idea over a glass of wine. Maybe one day I will really get there.
