We touch down at Dulles in Washington and race into a waiting presidential motorcade and are taken to the White House. Joe and Bob have a bourbon and exchange pleasantries. First Lady Dr. Jill takes us for a walk on the White House lawn and doesn’t raise a fuss when we pee on some garden plants. We have a nice walk and Washington is so warm! We have a dinner of upstate New York free run chicken. Ours is chopped up with brown rice and chunks of yams. I have never eaten a yam before. They are sweet! Reggie says they taste like sweet potatoes.
Bob and Joe discuss the Iranian deal and Joe’s face lightens up. He says he must shake a few trees up but thinks the United States can agree. He chortles that Putin’s knees are being cut off. He asks if Bob can act as a go between a favour he would appreciate. Bob agrees. Iran will ramp up oil production for Europe and the United States and all sanctions will be lifted against Iran which will promise to never to develop nuclear weapons.
He pulls me aside and thanks me and Reggie from the bottom of all American’s hearts. We exchange hugs and it is back to our jet and Toronto. I am not sure what all this oil production will do for the Ukraine but if President Biden says it will cut off Tsar Putin’s legs it must be good. We are all invited to an Easter Roast at Camp David.
