Since we have been here at Bridge 224a painting has gone on apace. nb Bones is looking in top form and is nearly done. Our neighbour Mark nb Woodsman has a pet cat, though looking at his tattooed face you could be forgiven for thinking he might own a Rottweiler. The cats name is Tyson and for an old 'un he is quite spritely. He often comes to visit scrounging food. If you pay him attention he is a happy little soul, but stop the stroking and he will sink his teeth onto your nearest soft bits.
