Hi Andi, glad you had a good reminder of the Lillian Beckwith novels. Not many folk seem to have read her these days. One of the deciding parts of my nature I think, being a kid dreaming of a remote small holding. I see your from "Furryboots City", I'm from just outside "Clootie City" in Angus and have done my missionary work down south, now back in the heather. See you on the boards, Colin.
