Attempts to resolve the Quandary:


By the time they reached Bowden, the stragglers had caught up and they were more like gallivanters or gangaboots than marchers, with quite a few of the villagers standing outside their homes to applaud or cheer and as they neared Mother Kelly's, Pete wrapped a kerchief across his lower face and tried to look nonchalant, although his eyes were constantly scanning the skies for signs of birds or bazookas; it was just a short stroll down the lane which took therm to the old brig and then the Kirk was in sight, with Aggie sitting in the land-rover, waiting for them: "succour is inside," she said, pointing to a sign which stated Pilgrim's Brunch @ Bowden Kirk and added that the at sign was none of her doing, "makes it seem like an online-vendor, but we're in the generous hands of the Church Committee, so I wasn't going to object," and Pete chipped in: "so, as with amaxophobia, you don't suffer from allodoxaphobia," and Aggie stoutly replied: "certainly not, young Pete, and I trust you never have occasion to be on the receiving end of my tongue," then laughed and took his arm: "let's get inside while it's all still hot," and the rest of the Pilgrims surged in behind them.
