Hobbes’s Adventure At The Airport

Tampa International Airport had received a call from the mother of a 6-year-old named Owen after the family arrived at their destination in Texas. Somehow, Owen had left his favorite stuffed tiger, named Hobbes, in the terminal. The airport let the family know that the stuffed animal would be waiting in the lost and found.

Little did they know, Hobbes the tiger “went on a little adventure of his own.” The trip was photographed and printed in a book made by one of TPA’s operations managers.

“Mmmm … gelato at Carrabba’s. Blood orange sounds pretty good.”

“At last, Owen returns for me and I get to show him what I’ve been up to for the last five days. I had so much fun at TPA. Can’t wait to come back!”
