Further down Standishgate, the same day that I saw this `Statue` chap,was a most unusual sight in Wigan - a chap was sculpting a dog in sand. Wonder if anyone has taken a photo of this sculptor for Photo-a-Day?

My, how he has grown.

Is begging legal in Wigan town centre these days?

He was the one I saw in the centre of Liverpool a couple of years ago

It's Artistic Licence. Not begging.

Ha Ha, the ghost of Wigan Past.

David did he blow the bubble that is above him or was someone else blowing them.

Have you got a screw loose, Dirty Harry? Sorry , I'll rephrase that; you obviously have got a screw loose.
Perhaps you think you're funny? We'll...funny peculiar perhaps! Certainly NOT amusing by any stretch of the imagination.

I saw the guy with the sand and he had made a dog. But this was in Southport yesterday. What I dont agree with is the guy in white gives lollipops to kids. Poor mums trying to get past, without a lolly. Bad for the teeth.

I've got a great sense of humour for anything thats funny, dirty harry... So try and be funny, instead of making outlandish remarks. 'Joking' about breaking into a persons house and wanting bank account details isn't funny no matter how you meant it.

Cyril, there`s a chap selling the `stuff` to make bubbles who is opposite the Grand Arcade and he blows these bubbles to attract attention:the breeze carries them wherever.

Comment by: Cyril on 30th March 2012 at 11:52

Cheers Ernest, I'll have to get one of those bubble making machines to keep the cats entertained.
