Artis­tic gift for Obama

The Press and Journal (North-East) - - News -

An artist is hop­ing to en­tice Pres­i­dent Barack Obama to visit Mo­ray – by ap­peal­ing to his an­i­mal-lov­ing side.

Linda Gorn, chair­woman of Keith Kilt and Tex­tile Cen­tre, has fol­lowed the ca­reer of the de­part­ing Amer­i­can leader since he was a sen­a­tor.

To pay tribute to his ser­vice she has spent two weeks cre­at­ing a touch­ing present she hopes he will cher­ish.

And in an ef­fort to stand out from the truck-loads of gifts the leader will re­ceive in the com­ing days, Mrs Gorn de­cided to fo­cus on his pet dogs Bo and Sunny.

The pic­ture shows the Por­tuguese wa­ter dogs en­joy­ing the sun on the lawn out­side the White House.

She said: “I just wanted to do some­thing for him that he would like and would want to keep.”

And en­closed in the pack­age is an in­vi­ta­tion to the Oba­mas to visit Keith to get mea­sured up for a kilt. She said: “I fig­ured he was go­ing to need a hol­i­day now.

“It’s a bit cheeky but know­ing how much Amer­i­cans like Scot­land you never know.”
