TBT: Bahrain 1986
During our last days in Bahrain, Vice-President George Bush arrived in April on a 3 day visit. We all gathered in the Embassy courtyard, getting warmer by the minute. It wasn't long before the VP took his jacket off. Snipers on the roof - just in case - made us hope that they'd miss us if they started shooting. My children had their photos taken and the VP then pulled me over to have my photo taken. I could have passed on that one but... Now it seems that only the photo of my daughter , center child of the three girls, is the only one that has survived the passage of time.
One of my children liked to deface photos back in the day. Thus the VP has a few more wrinkles than he actually had back then.
