The stories from Obummer’s disastrous visit to Colombia reminded me of a true tale told me by my friend and fellow realtor Mary Ann Heaven about the time she and Marshall rented their Kennebunkport home to the Russians.
Putin was in town to visit Bush II (or maybe I, I forget) and the Ruskies needed a place to board some of his bodyguards. The Heaven’s house was available, a deal was struck and the Russians moved in for a few days. And what a few days. Neighbors told Mary Ann that the guards, who presumably were expected to protect Putin during the day, stayed up partying all night, every night, and each morning there were at least two full-sized trash cans stuffed to overflowing with empty vodka bottles.
Not sure I’d want to be in the same town with a band of hungover, perhaps still drunk, Uzi-toting Russians, but no mention was ever made of anyone getting shot or even of any disgruntled prostitutes, so I suppose the visit could be deemed a success.
