As the car needed to go for its MOT, I got the day off from the ‘great trench dig’ to drive my trusty vehicle in to the mechanics and, whilst free, I went visiting.
Allow me to introduce Misty who lives with my friend Isla (see The inspiration of friends). Misty is a large lad easily 3 ft long at full stretch and is greyer in colour than the shadowing would suggest. He really enjoys lying in the dappled shade of the miniature Acer and watching the wildlife go by.
Had to take this from 12 ft through a kitchen window. Was quite pleased that the image was mostly rescuable once on the computer.
