Welcome. Great stories!

Curious to know who Tinky is/was  :D

I read it as "Tinky Andi" and figured "tinky" was some esoteric UK term meaning crafty or handy.

Whichever, glad to meet you.
It's just fabric. We can out-think it.

Tinky means "boss" in teenager/games-speak I believe.

I interpreted the name as boss andy.

Or something to do with teletubbies.

Nothing as staggering as that. Tinky was one of my kitties. It was always Tinky and I <3
