    Grandma, you always make me laugh. What a great use of “xerophyte!” You and Jerry were thinking along the same lines regarding the Castro bag. My fave was the last one….I hadn’t even paid any attention to the woman on the left clutching bags. “In the future, she’d shoplift lighter goods.” …Too funny!
