A small grocery shop on the main square in Bantry. It had all sorts of old fashioned goods for sale.

It’s high tech in the retail industry! No more cheques in Marks & Spencer stores from March 1st! I find it hard to imagine anyone paying for goods by cheque these days.
Business dealings seem to be different though. One of these days we’ll figure out a safe way of handing over our bank details to business partners without getting signed up for a monthly subscription to some charity like a certain Jeremy did a few weeks ago ..
Oh yeah, cheque is a check. I can never get my head around that. “Check” is a verb, not a noun!
During the Christmas rush I went searching for gifts for my wife and the first place I went was Susan’s Fine Silver on Marlboro Street in Cork.
This is Susan’s husband Barry, and that’s Michael replacing merchandise in the window. Both were very helpful and I got two lovely gifts for Jacinta. Thanks for your help!
We popped in there this afternoon because I couldn’t remember Barry and Michael’s names. Lucky we did because Barry hadn’t told his wife that I was posting this picture.
Latest news on the lens is that they’re waiting on a piece from Sigma Japan. So much for it being fixed and in transit. That’s almost 2 months to fix my lens.
