Original home of the mad monkey

When did The Beach Boys get so old?

Why are there knitted monkeys around the cottage ?

Why have I never showed this plaque on here before ?
If you have a problem reading it, it says. THIS BRIDGE WAS REPAIRED something or other I can't read IN 1693. 
Which bridge ?

This one, it's the bridge we go over to get to Soggibottom cottage.  The plaque is facing outwards looking towards the stream, you have to really lean over to see the plaque.

The bridge has nothing what so ever to do with monkeys or The Beach Boys, but the photo of the bridge does show you that Autumn is here and the leaves are beginning to fall.

No dogs on the beach ban for this particular beach has been lifted, just as the weather has started to turn colder.

Best to make the best of sunny days when we can Freya.

You can find Freya Rose Blossom at The Catflap Cavalier in the place where she is often found, on the beach.

They are very fine monkeys.

Those monkeys are so funny, love the faces. I love it when the beach crowds go and it stays warm.

Hard to believe the Beach Boys got old while we both stayed so young.

So why are there monkeys all over the cottage?

Those monkeys are so cute! Did you make them? Give Freya a big hug from me and a hello from Muffy. She's having a hard time adjusting to the baby right now. She was the only baby for a long time!

"This bridge was repaired by y county in 1693." In Chauncer you have things like "y clept" in Middle English, so I think this is just a local hanger on of that just meaning the county. (More literally meaning your county or this county.)

Fascinating stuff Midge as this was way before 1706 Toll Pikes etc. and after 1555 when local government stopped looking after the roads and told the local parishes that they had to.

Looks like there's been a lot of monkey business at your place.

We see your autumn leaves and what a cool bridge!
We also love those monkeys!
We saw the Beach Boys on a special show and they can still sing so good!

What a NEAT sign on that bridge! I love your monkeys. And yes, the Beach Boys are old, but they can still sing, and I still sing along! Hope Freya enjoyed her beach again!
