John from NSW:

Dear Marty,

Just a short email to let you know we had a great time at your restaurant
last week when our friends from Inverloch dropped in for a quick bite while
showing my wife and I around the district.
You may remember we asked if you knew the collective name for a group of Owls as we couldn’t remember it (the owl was on one of your hot water bottle
covers).¬†You looked it up on Google for us and it was a “Parliament”.

Just for future reference if any other “old farts” like us do a similar
thing, here is a list of common collective nouns.

We had a great time in the village, and the food, ambiance and friendly
staff at Moo’s was most memorable.

Kind regards,

Epping, NSW
