Leave these two together for a couple of days and all the World's problems would be solved. Good bright photo Ron.

I like this. passing the time of day can make such a difference to your well being, especially to those living alone.

Sorry to repeat my self. It is one of my happiest memories, working these locks on a summer Sunday afternoon. The people I met & chatted with were lovely. So good.

There seems to be a little dog involved somewhere.


Comment by Garry on 22nd May 2014 at 10:51
What older people like myself need to do is have a hobby.


Comment by Catherine on 22nd May 2014 at 12:02
Lovely photo.

Being a Grumpy Old Man on WiganWorld isn't really a hobby, Garry.


Comment by Syd on 22nd May 2014 at 14:34
Rev Long, Never has a more accurate comment been made!


Comment by wiganer on 22nd May 2014 at 15:15
brilliant comment Rev long


Comment by mac on 22nd May 2014 at 15:34
Lovely happy bright and smiley pic, glorious sky too.


Comment by Garry on 22nd May 2014 at 16:37
I'm not a grumpy old man, you lot.
The point I am making is having a hobby gets you through the day, once you've retired.


Comment by irene roberts on 22nd May 2014 at 19:23
Rev Long, I'm going to get told off for going off the subject, but I was at Margaret Johnson's funeral yesterday and a friend of mine asked me to ask you something if I got the chance, but I wasn't able to catch you. He wondered if you knew if there was any further development in the plan to have a memorial to the miners from the Moss Pits.

Do you need a license to use a boat on the canal, and do they have to be inspected like an MOT????


Comment by Rev David Long on 22nd May 2014 at 23:03
Irene - email me and I'll explain about the memorial: david@scars.org.uk.
Alan - you don't need a license to steer a boat in Britain - but you do in most European countries - unless you're hiring a boat... and then you're given a temporary license for the duration of the hire.
Your boat will need a license, though - and will only be given one if it has a certificate granted under the Boat Safety Scheme - most of which is to do with the safety of the craft for its passengers against hazards such as fire or suffocation in confined cabins, rather than "water-worthiness" - after all, boats don't have brakes, and steering is rather rudimentary
