Photo-a-Day (Thursday, 15th March, 2018)
Nice photo Ron. Best place to be indoors
What is WHAMM referred to in yesterdays photo please? In Aussie, feeling cold looking at this, but makes me remember, fondly
I'm as cow'd as a slor!
The Beast from the East has gone but the Pest from the West is due next! They paint a nice picture though.
LANCYLASS...WHAMM stands for Wigan Heritage And Mining Monument.
Very emotive photo Ron.
Lancylass WHAMM is Wigan Heritage and Mining Monument
The BEAST from the EAST is back this week end.
Beast from the East is coming back, take care.
It's true, we are having warmer Winters and colder Springs.
I've ordered more coal and sherry, the beast from the east is on it's way back, Brrr.
I suspect that is the Finger Post, or it was before the new road layout and roundabouts.
I haven't heard "cowder than a slorr" for years, Syntactimon! My Dad always said it. It certainly fits that photo!
The path across the moor was called the bobby's walk.Put there when the police station was on the site where my house is.it was made to keep the bobby'feet dry when going to the finger post on traffic duty,the round about stopped that.
Garry do you help the coal man to tip the bags in the 'coal hole'? Just wondering - I bet you can show him a thing or two handling bags o'coal! Make sure you count them bags!
Interesting to know about bobby's walk.
Garry, i'm not sure about the coal bags but if you need any help with the Sherry???
HA HA, Yes I could swing those coal bags around on to my back years ago on my rounds, I'm a little too old nowdays, Veronica.
Thanks DTease, but I've no problem handling the sherry.
Shiver me timbers Ronald. H.
DTease, Veronica and I were before you for a glass of Garry's sherry....don't push in, Lad! xx
Irene, Garry has just put a new order in so there should be enough to go round. I'll even bring my own pint pot to save him washing up.
Drinks all round then Irene, cheers.
We might let him fetch t'coal in Irene whilst we sit near fire with Garry and all our glasses on't cornish toasting our toes. That's if Garry has a coal bucket! Ok Dtease!
Sounds like a plan to me Veronlca.
Garry you polluting the air with coal fires, gas is much better.
Alan Don't give me that rubbish.
You pollute from you're mouth.
