Well, not quite _next door_; but certainly down the street!

Now, now, dear Sal! I wouldn't say stone cold silence! So far I've made
an exhaustive web-search of bumper sticker sites (no luck :-( ); and I've
got a friend who lives in Annapolis tracking down an import shop to see if
they carry such things (or know where such a thing can be gotten). The
shop is oriented to Scottish and Irish goods, but I figure Welsh can't be
_too_ far off the track!

You ought to end up with any number of bumper stickers, Sally, if each of
our searches turn up fruitful.

Oh, give it a swat on the nose with a stern "bad boy!/girl!". That ought
to take care of it. If that doesn't quite do it; send it to bed without
its charcoal bicky.
Would a "Plaid Cymru" sticker do, by any chance? I saw that one while
searching yesterday; one of them seemed to have a Dragon driving a car.
