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. Padraic.
