I see that Bramble, (good name by the way) is a Border Terrier. Our previous dog, Dixie was one of them, also kept one of her pups, Jack, (until his kidneys failed). Our present woof is Bridie, an Irish Terrier as seen here: https://youtu.be/j7oUwWA9ERo

To think that I was out on the B31 this time last week. Picture taken on my rounds 30 minutes ago.
I feel sorry for any animals under that lot. *sad2*

Did I see Bridie elsewhere( was it here )  chancing her luck with a grey tabby cat

Generally there fine Blacksheep, plenty to nibble underneath and snow is an excellent insulator (ask an Eskimo) *smile*

Indeed. Our male Bengal cat really enjoyed the dog, despite that she would regularly mount him; very strange, (probably an attempt to dominate him)! Sadly the old boy had a stroke so is no longer with us.

Using my Sherlock Holmes-like powers of reasoning Watson, (Topdad) I deduce that there is a strong possibility, nae, a probability, but not a conclusive certainty, that you may, or may not, live at a house that has the street number twelve, being numbered in the the decimal numeral system (also called base-ten positional numeral system, and occasionally called denary).
In making this assumption, and given the normal method in the UK of labeling even numbered dwellings on one side of the road and odd numbered houses on the other, it may be assumed that your house is approximately the sixth one on that side of the road, unless unconventional numbering has been used in your street; in which case your abode may well be the twelfth of such dwellings in that road.

On the other hand, you might have knicked wheely-bins from somewhere else!

Cool barbecue/oven/fireplace by the way!

Bob I'm blaming you for all this snow, you have more than your share of Christmas trees in that garden and they attract snow.
although as GB has noted you may have nicked them with the bins  ;)
