Some people visit us at Bloodwood and bring enlightenment and joy in to our lives.
They appear irregularly and, often without our asking, solve annoying problems which have been bugging us in the interim. We don't usually understand that they have been bugging us to any great extent, and we certainly have absolutely no idea of how important it always is to fix them immediately, but it is patiently explained to us that, apparently, the interim is a painful place for any problem to bug one, and so it is always a huge relief when these systemic problems are, without complaint, investigated, assessed and as often as not, completely cured.
And then there's Brian. He became a firm friend of Bloodwood at about the time the first real problem appeared, and he's been here when needed to fix them, almost as they appear, ever since. His latest bit of investigation centres around the relationship between the temperature of the Bloodwood sheep yoghurt and raspberry ice cream you eat and the possible effect this has on post-menopausal folicle growth in an outdoor setting whilst wearing a gun holster. We will publish the results in the Bloodwood Bible as soon as they become generally available.
