    Dudley sounds like quite a character and lots of fun for both you and your daughter. His twin also has posed for many photos, adding more humour to whatever is happening :>

    Oooooo!!!! >jumps up and down< I did a huge amount of research on the Ruthwell Cross and this just brings it all back to mind!!!! Wow!!!

  • Jan, these crosses are quite amazing. This is one, and one near it, that are still in their original positions. They cover them during winter to slow the weathering from the freezing.. To stand and touch this was a moving experience. It has traces of pictish writing on the back..
