I have spent much of the last three days painting the boards that will become the wagon sides. How appropriate then that whilst Painting My Wagon the cast of Settle Amateur Operatic Society's forthcoming production of Calamity Jane arrived, by prior arrangement, to pose for publicity photographs around the navvy hut - the nearest Settle has to a passable Wild West structure I suppose.
The director was with them barking her orders.
"Come on luvvies. Do try to look menacing. You're supposed to hate each other."
Never a dull moment.
