Glad to know about the ducks! Thank you! (And I’ve always said, the truth of something can be independent of the facts of something.)
I didn’t mention (I was going for sympathy — score!) that some grocery shops sell beer (bleh!) and wine. Although the clerk who say us approaching her register with a cart of wine bottles stopped us before we unloaded, to explain there was a 3000 ml limit on wine purchases. [And yes, she said “three thousand milliliters” not “three liters” because… <sigh> let’s just say the PA educational system needs some touchups here and there, okay?]
Best to you and Captain Argentina, dear lady!
