>Through a glass blearily – #735


Back at Wagner-Stempel‘s open courtyard from the other day.

(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…
