You're remembering _The Magicians of Caprona_.  When
the families have to pay a formal call on the Duke, the
Montanas use spell-horses, I think.  I forget what the
other family uses.  Anyway, rain is a major problem.


I had a girlfriend who told me she was in the hospital for
female problems. I said, “Get real! What does that mean?”
She says, “You know, female problems.” I said, “What?
You can’t parallel park? You can’t get credit?”
