I like the artwork. Very nice. Thought the top one was a photo for a moment.

Very nice indeed! The one of Holmlea in particular is cracking, good skills mate. I went there as a kid, sorry to see it falling into disrepair. It's a cracking building inside too.

I have a handout (can't think of better word) consisting of 6 typed A4 pages which provides information about "selected stones of interest in Cathcart Old Parish Churchyard and Cathcart Burial Ground, Carmunnock Road".

As I'm moving house soon, I'm at the beginning of what I hope will be a ruthless clearout, and my eye has just lighted on this handout. I wouldn't throw it out, but if anyone here is interested in it, pm me with your address and I'll post it.

Hmmm.... I suppose I could also scan it in, save it to satisfy my own hoarding compulsion, and post it here for everyone to see.

Oh, dear. :( Scans it is then, but it'll likely take a while as I'm not quite sure how to work it. :oops:
