(Shocking website and I’ve offered to do a words-for-wine barter translation deal, but he reckons that as they sell everything anyway, why should he bother. One way of looking at it, I guess)
Of course, the strict drinking-driving laws here make forward planning essential on such occasions and we’ve worked out a fairly equitable arrangement:
We share the driving.
I drive there. Mrs jb drives home.
Which is a lot fairer than My Mate The Professor’s arrangement.
When they’re on vacation (they’ve just spent 2 weeks in New England and last year, they were in Australia for 3 weeks…), he just adds up the miles and lets Mrs MMTP work them off incrementally.
As far as I recall, he’s about 7000 miles in credit.
That’s about 100 round-trips to our place for dinner…
