Anyway, the museum was closed by the time I got there, so I didn’t see the gun. I then caught a bus back into town & had my evening meal back in Casemate’s Square.

Heather tells me there was no sign of any alcohol in the dish, the crepe looked flabby and was covered in some sort of bitter tasting marmalade. Frank's face was a picture when het asked it.
