| "One night, a terrible night
in the middle of winter, Mary Poppins came in here for a bowl of soup and
a muffin. Well, we never had no muffins and the soup well passed its serve
by time but we found her a menu.
Mary smiled as she took the menu and perused it.
"Hmm, I would like the cauliflower cheese please", she said, and sat over there by the fire.
When she'd finished, she approached the receptionist - we had one in those days! - and asked for a room for the night. That was no problem, the place was empty.
"And can I have breakfast in bed?"asked Mary politely. The receptionist nodded and smiled. "In that case, I would love a couple of eggs please ... poached". After confirming the order, Mary signed in and went up to her room for the night.
The night passed uneventfully and next morning Mary came down early to check out. I was at the bar, as usual.
"Morning madam ... sleep well?" I asked,
"Yes thank you", Mary replied.
"Food to your liking?"
"Well, I have to say the cauliflower cheese was exceptional, I don't think I have had better. Shame about the eggs tho' ... they really weren't that nice at all", Mary replied, looking me straight in the eye.
So I asked her to write that down in our Guest Comments Book. I thought it might help the business, famous woman like her.
"OK I will ... thanks!" replied Mary. She then checked out, paused a moment, then scribbled a comment into the book. Waving, she left to continue her journey.
I picked up the book to see what she'd written.
