IJMC Mary Poppins?

                        IJMC - Mary Poppins?

Well, why not. Granted, it's been absolutely ages since I've seen the 
movie, and even longer since I've seen the whole thing through...but that 
doesn't mean we can't tell a little story about the madam, right?   -dave

    Mary Poppins was travelling home but due to worsening weather, she 
    decided to stop at a hotel for the night. She approached the 
    receptionist and asked for a room for the night. "Certainly madam", 
    he replied courteously. 

    "Is the restaurant open still?" enquired Mary. "Sorry, no", came the

    service and would value your opinion", said the receptionist. "Okay,
    I will, thanks!" replied Mary. 

    She then checked out, paused a while, then scribbled a comment into 
    the book. Waving, she left to continue her journey. Curious, the 
    receptionist picked up the book to see the comment Mary had
