Black Cat continued

Almost there, a couple more hours to the finish.

Yesterday I went to pick some Bilberries which grow on the edge of the moor. It's been a good crop this year with plenty of sun and rain to encourage growth.
Some of the larger ones are now very squishy, you touch them and they explode in a purple red mess. After a few minutes I looked like I'd been the victim of some horrible crime, even worse Roxie and Clinton had been helping so they had red stains all the way up their white legs. Walking back to the car we met a party of walkers who took one look and increased their walking speed.

Thank you.
Roxie rang them herself Vivien, mainly because I stopped her eating the Bilberries.
