Baby Patrick and Travellin’ Rick were in the car together, when Travellin’ Rick got the call from his boss, Bob.
“You and Baby Patrick up for another adventure,” said Bob.
“Hold on,” said Travellin’ Rick. “I will ask Baby Patrick. He is sitting right here beside me. Where will this adventure be?”
“Ashcroft,” said Bob. “Apparently, there is some graffiti on the side of the mountain I want you to check out.”
Travellin’ Rick asked Baby Patrick about going to Ashcroft. Baby Patrick wanted to see this graffiti that Bob talked about.
“So we are off to Ashcroft,” said Travellin’ Rick when he hung up the phone .
“Why do people graffiti?” asked Baby Patrick, on the way to Ashcroft.
“I don’t know,” said Travellin’ Rick.
Travellin’ Rick and Baby Patrick drove to Ashcroft, BC. Once they got there they drove through the town of Ashcroft. It was a very small community, very peaceful. Through the town, the saw the mountain that Bob was speaking about. They also saw the graffiti.
“I really don’t know what to say about it,” said Travellin’ Rick. “That kind of graffiti isn’t really all that bad.”
“No,” said Baby Patrick. “I don’t think so either. In fact, it kind of adds character to the town.”
“It does doesn’t it,” said Travellin’ Rick.
On the side of the mountain, Travellin’ Rick and Baby Patrick saw the graffiti. The graffiti was dates of graduations throughout the years.
“What is the earliest graduation date that you can see?” asked Baby Patrick.
“Well,” said Travellin’ Rick. “I see one that says 1985.”
“Look way up there,” said Baby Patrick. “I see one that says 1971.”
“I think that may be the earliest,” said Travellin’ Rick.
Baby Patrick and Travellin’ Rick would normally caondone graffiti, but in this case, they were quite impressed with what they saw.
