Places   (Help with places, streets and buildings in Wigan.)

Known Tony since being a kid, JR, and his sisters. I lived in the street facing them.

I do remember a Tex, but his surname escapes me. Tony would always walk past our house on a Sunday morning on his way to and from his Mam's when he moved away, usually with a book in his hand, and reading it. Sadly, he lost his partner Gwen, only last year I think. I haven't seen him as regularly since then.

He once told me that he was writing a novel about a man whose teeth became a keyboard. Don't know if he completed it, but he was well capable of doing so. His love of films and film making is famous. How he never got spotted or became a big name is a mystery. Tony has talent and is a real character, and sadly this town is short of more characters like him in these horrible times.

We may have crossed paths JR, and you can always message me via Ron if you so desire.

This is a lovely thread and a welcome change to the dross on the main page, with the exception of my poetry corner, of course, which you are very welcome to contribute to.
