On the Spectrum #88: National Treasures

(click to enlarge)

A word of advice to the curators at the Smithsonian: If you’re going to secure a National Treasure with a fence that has an opening in it large enough for a small child to fit through, at some point a small child is going to cram himself through that opening!
“It is possible, however unlikely, that they might find a weakness… and exploit it.”
~ General Taage
Now how my wife got through that same ‘small, thermal exhaust shaft’ I’ll never know.

One more thing... To better understand the little joke in the first panel, please see #71.

This has to be my favorite museum in Washington, DC. I've been there many times.. if your boys have a keen interest in rocket ships, maybe kennedy space center is an ideal next vacation.

Just had to tell you I LOVE this whole comic. My son's name is Michael as well, and he is so similar to your son sometimes I wonder if you have a camera stashed in my house, lol. We took Michael to the Air and Space Museum last summer and yes, he was facinated with the escalators :-) Keep up the great work!!

@Rob S - Yeah, it's a great place. Washington in general is really fun and easy city to tour. ANd that's an interesting idea (Kennedy Space Center) we might just have to check that out at some point.

@Mandy - It's really funny how often I get the comment that these stories saound REALLY FAMILIAR. LOL.

I'm glad you like them. :)
