Lovely

I remember the colours in a rainbow by `Richard of York Gave Battle in Vain.`
Hence: Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, Blue, Indigo, Violet.
Speaking of battles, the
Wigan and the English Civil Wars Re-enactment Day is tomorrow 28th September 2013.

Based on the photo, the pot of gold must be in Shevington.

Good pic, Mick.


Comment by Roy on 27th September 2013 at 10:35
Nice photo Mick of a pleasantly rejuvenated village. Ernest, i have always remembered the rainbow as ROY G BIV, it helps when you share your name with the first three colours,not much else to remember then.


Comment by Neil Cain on 27th September 2013 at 11:29
Visited Crooke recently hoping the tipper was still in existence. Met very helpful gentlemen who told me all about the village and recommend the Crooke Village website. Thanks chaps if you see this.


Comment by Marcus on 27th September 2013 at 11:39
For the rainbow,our physics teacher at the Grammar School (Mr. Alec "Yogi" Robinson) suggested, 'Rowntrees of York Give Best in Value'. A great teacher at a great school !

That`s a good one Marcus and a good picture Mick.


Comment by John H on 27th September 2013 at 17:58
Very well snapped Mike, in the right place at the right time. A little touch of magic


Comment by Mick on 27th September 2013 at 18:04
Crooke is a nice place now but years ago it used to be rough, with some rough familys.

Shevington never had a burglary until after they knocked down Woodcock Row and moved all the familys up the the new housing estate.

'Somewhere over the rainbow, weigh a pie'
Well it is in Wigan!


Comment by Art on 29th September 2013 at 01:13
"Read Of Your Good Books In Verse"
Was the "aid memoir", normally taught to remember the rainbow colours.
How old were you Mick when Woodcock Row was demolished?
Still harping on about "Council Houses people"?...:o(


Comment by AP on 3rd October 2013 at 00:03
Richard of York gave battle in vain:
A spectre spectra in the rain!

Wil o' the wisp sounds rather camp:
But this we learned was 'Firedamp'!

I dreamed that one day I would be free:
But is this too illusory?
