...to keep to myself:
This evening at a backyard cookout one of my neighbors offered what he called "perhaps the most notable tourist comment" that he'd ever heard. It seems that someone was visiting the Preservation Society Museum several days ago and walked up to the clerk with this question: Do you folks have complete gynecological records for all of the historic families on the island?
Please don't ask what the clerk's reply was. I don't know what it was, but I am certain it was not as noteworthy as the question.
