The Von Trapp Family

This is from an article on the Von Trapp family lodge, in the NY Times:

But in the off season, the “Sound of Music” bus tours arrive, full of seniors who line their purses with cellophane so they can stuff them with Austrian pastries at the breakfast buffet. He recently discovered that his gift shop had been selling a stuffed goat that sings “The Lonely Goatherd.”

“Isn’t that awful?” he said, sighing. “My staff hid it from me for months. But it does sell.”
