Photo-a-Day (Tuesday, 17th July, 2018)
I Love it Mick
I was thirteen before I realised "Wuchy" was a corruption of Woodshaw. The place is so different and much better than the past.
In my early teens lads used to thrash old motorbikes up and down Wuchy. Colliery waste splashed all over the place. One lad was killed - his dad was landlord of the Queen's Head.
a beautiful summer picture!
Well, Howard's there, but where's Marina?! I love a field of buttercups on a sunny day.
Thats a brilliant comment Irene !
She's probably deserted Howard for a "tall person", Helen, or Pearl's kept him in cleaning the windows! I love those characters! I do like that bicycle amongst the buttercups...a lovely photo.
They've probably fell in a ditch Irene or they are buried in that big green edge! The women were funnier than the men in that series - especially Thora Hird I found!
Very good picture using the 'thirds' composition.
Fancy someone leaving an owd bike in such a lovely field, shame on them.
Fly tipping, that.
Veronica, I agree. When the ladies used to drink their tea in a synchronised way at the coffee-mornings, the director used to say, "Lift-two-three, drink-two-three, down-two-three" so they all did it together. So simple but so funny.
Also Joe, it's wilful destruction of buttercups. Great shot though.
Once mountain blue 'neath childrens' feet
Now Wutchie green o'er errant meet.
Howard gave is opening line, then scrumptious "Oh, Marina"
I took my leave that very mo', I'm shy U.K. subpoena.
Well said, Philip G!
Nice one Mick, I thought it was a deer without ears. Gary, was the mo-bike rider Alan Parr? My memory is confusing me.
Ken - my memory a bit befuddled, but the surname Parr rings a few bells.
I do recall his dad said afterwards that the bikers should carry on enjoying themselves, despite his loss.
