Don't have the duck.
Cooler temperatures mean Bob and Sophie can once again go out in the back of the car. There is nothing they enjoy more than a trip to the supermarket car park. If only children were so easy to please. Bob stays on guard, Sophie curls up and catches up on her beauty sleep.
Pumpkins have made an appearance. A sure sign autumn is here. On the supermarkets soft drink shelves bottles of Arizona pomegranate green tea. One wonders how many residents of Tucson might associate their state with pomegranate green tea.
To the Asian restaurant for lunch. You know its an Asian restaurant because there are two large porcelain elephants at the front door. We are the only people there. The waiter, who we think is Vietnamese, tells us in heavily accented French not to have the Beijing Duck - ' Its not good ' . In fact he doesn't say that at all. He says something altogether more pejorative.
