Surely the title should read " Dog wearing Covid mask "?

Lovely photo Mick and it captures the masked dog, the reflection in the water of the narrowboat and the beautiful gardens. Thank you.

Nice , but surreal . Rum times .

Great picture, something homely about it. That's a first a Mask actually wearing a dog! Only Mick could think of that...;o))

An intriguing piccy. Such a hotch potch of random items. What does it say on the notice board?

Looks like Parbold to mw.

I like that scene. There is something warm and homely about it which I would imagine reflects the style of whoever lives there, and highlights their sense of humour and friendliness in giving people a smile when they spot the mask-wearing dog.

Anne, I don't think it's a notice-board; I think it's a plant-pot with the light reflecting off it, but I can see what you mean. Veronica, we have put similar comments on here....great minds think alike, Dolly dear! xx

Looks like Appley Bridge to me.
The old Waters Edge pub in the background.

Irene... I can see what what you mean by the pot close to the dog. I am meaning much farther back in the picture, close to that clipped bright green hedge.

Comment by: Anne on 8th December 2020 at 12:23

Mortarmillbill ....your right, the dog is sat at the back of houses on Mill Lane.
The sign is for the Boathouse pub.

See it all quite clearly now, Mick is stood on the canal bridge.

My apologies. Anne. I hadn't seen the other notice. The more I look at this photo the more I like it. It would make a nice jigsaw puzzle, xx

Is that Arthur's boat Mick?, it looks to be moored in the right place. If it is, then it hasn't moved for a number of years to the best of my knowledge.
I'm assuming you knew Arthur ?

Comment by: Mick on 8th December 2020 at 16:52

No Ozy I dont know Arthur. the boat never seems to move and is moored next to the last house on Mill Lane

I thought you might have known him Mick. He died a few years ago. I think he drove taxis for a living. His boat was always moored at the bottom of his garden, but I don't remember the name of the vessel. I haven't been past there for a while, but it looked a bit neglected the last time that I saw it.
