Ive noticed when I ride past this place they have a smoking shelter next to the canal.
Its good this company make there staff walk 100 yards to the side of the canal to have there smoking breaks, but the trouble is the smokers when they have smoked there cigs just flick there stumps into the canal

A good study of lines, well, thats the way I see it

Comment by: Fred Mason on 21st March 2018 at 08:35

Well composed, Joanne.

Good photo.

Comment by: Alan on 21st March 2018 at 10:40

Stop mourning and enjoy the photo, Mick.

Comment by: Anne on 21st March 2018 at 10:44

Yes, HoT there are many straight lines in the picture.
Nicely done Joannne.

Comment by: Veronica on 21st March 2018 at 11:06

'Moaning' Alan not mourning! Nobody' s dead!
A very familiar picture Joanne on here- usually gets people going....!

It looks like it's been made from Lego.

Comment by: Frank on 21st March 2018 at 14:26

I think Alan was aiming at Mick!
Jolly good photo!

Comment by: Veronica on 21st March 2018 at 14:57

Me and Alan take it in turns pulling one another up....no offence meant!

Comment by: Alan on 21st March 2018 at 15:27

Veronica is so sweet, and she's right! I'm in the corner with my Dunce hat on.

Comment by: Howard P on 21st March 2018 at 15:31

I suspect it's a modern building.

Comment by: Veronica on 21st March 2018 at 18:09

Aww that's nice of you Alan- but I don't think either of us can keep it up do you?

Comment by: DTease on 21st March 2018 at 19:47

In the Red corner we have Veronica the Westhoughton Wizard and in the Dunce corner we have Alan the angry Hatter.
Your Referee for tonight's contest for the Horlicks Cup is suspected to be Howard P. Seconds out,ding ding rrround one.

Comment by: Veronica on 21st March 2018 at 20:18

Oh no not Howard the chief suspect - He'll make sure Alan has horseshoes in his gloves! But what a magnificent trophy The Horlicks Cup filled to the brim with Horlicks!

Comment by: irene roberts on 21st March 2018 at 21:19

Oh, can't we have it filled with Garry's sherry, Veronica?

Comment by: Allan on 21st March 2018 at 22:08

It's about time Mick learned which there to use where

Comment by: Veronica on 21st March 2018 at 22:30

Well if we're having a party then - to be honest a nice glass of red wine for me Irene!

Comment by: irene roberts on 22nd March 2018 at 10:27

We'll make that two large red wines then, Veronica, and we'll put them on DTease's account! xx.

Comment by: Veronica on 22nd March 2018 at 13:56

And a nice piece of fillet steak Irene to go with it- make that two pieces for me I'll need one to cover my black eye! x

Comment by: Jackson on 22nd March 2018 at 14:38

Sounds someone's been at the sherry already.

Comment by: Alan on 22nd March 2018 at 19:13

All at it again, directed off the post!

Comment by: irene roberts on 22nd March 2018 at 20:04

The people who wanted to comment on the photo had already commented. The bit of banter between others that followed did not detract from comments on the photo, nor stop others posting. Friendships have been forged between complete strangers on Wigan World, and that is surely not a bad thing in an increasingly hostile world?

Comment by: Veronica on 22nd March 2018 at 22:09

I second that - there's only so much you can say about the not very Nice-Pak Factory which hasn't been said before. A bit of friendly banter goes a long,long way.
But thanks to Joanne for going out in the cold weather and snapping the photo it's much appreciated. ( Bet she wouldn't mind either!)

Comment by: Mick on 22nd March 2018 at 22:23

Ive not found any friendships Irene

Comment by: Veronica on 23rd March 2018 at 06:46

Just wondering has Alan been promoted to Chief Director on the Board of Directors at Wigan World? He seems to lay down the law a lot re rules and regulations..... He would fit in very well at not very Nice- Pak with his clip board under his arm! You have to have a laugh sometimes even at work Alan!

Comment by: irene roberts on 23rd March 2018 at 09:58

Mick, whether people like your comments or not, you are a regular contributor to p-a-d and part of the group of "regulars" who comment, as is Alan, and therefore are pieces in the jigsaw.

Comment by: DTease on 23rd March 2018 at 13:16

Fillet steak? Red wine? I am Pensioner you know and not one of them rich ones I keep hearing about either!
How about Jam Butties and a bottle of Dandilion and Burdock instead? (shared between us of course)

Comment by: Veronica on 23rd March 2018 at 13:56

If we are very nice to Alan he might chuck in and treat us!

Comment by: irene roberts on 23rd March 2018 at 16:25

I'm sorry, DTease, Dandelion and Burdock just WILL NOT DO! Veronica and I insist on wine, but the jam-butties are fine, (can I have a crust. please?).

Comment by: DTease on 23rd March 2018 at 20:48

A think whist aw aft feight fer who gets t'crust Irene! Un wi Veronica being o strung puncher it favvers me un thee 'ave nowt draw.

Comment by: Veronica on 23rd March 2018 at 22:34

Dandelion and Burdock sound like names given to children today! I know one of the Rolling Stones children was called Dandelion....just a thought!
