Weights and Measures

It was still pretty early in the day when I got up for a walk, but this rural grandmother and a granddaughter had apparently sold all their wares even by 7am. I haven't seen those kinds of weights and measures since chemistry lab.

I call him the niffy old uncle. He always seemed happy to see me and chat with me even though the language barrier seemed insurmountable save through a friendly smile and endless cups of tea.
