Distant view of the masts.A field and two fences? What is Waggytails?

What a peaceful scene. It makes me want to leave my mobile 'phone and my watch at home, and lean on a farm gate reciting "What is this life, if, full of care, We have no time to stand and stare?" Lovely photo, Dennis.

Well I cant stand Waggy Tailed Dogs, especially when Im out having a pleasant walk and one of them runs up to me Wagging its tail and spraying me all over with wet dog smelly water.
Sometime even when I wearing my best pants.

Thanks Dennis lovely photo of another of my favourite places Rivington pike. I have always loved Rivington since I was a child, We used to take my great grandma for a ride to Rivington in the 60s. It as always been a lovely place to go. Also I can always remember going to the barn with my other Grandma to in the 60s. It brings so many happy memories for me.

Looks like there's some kennels nearby. If there is they have a lots of space to play and wag their tails!

The Philosopher

Think I'll lean on this farm gate
For a hour or two and meditate
On important things that really matter ,
Do they paint the mast with a hundred foot ladder?
Is Rivvy Pike a man made mound ?
Where is the source of the Dougie found ?
In the Japanese garden who built the folly ?
What type of rock is in that quarry ?
But the biggest question of all remains ,
What the heck is Waggytails ?
It will take all day to work it out ,
Such is the joy of doing nowt .

Trust Mick! You should be glad doggies like the look of you! They are far more loving and trusting than humans, well most of them I don't like Rottweilers... Grrr. My grandkids have a lovely cockapoo, I am totally in love with Mabs, I have never had a dog before , but I am besotted with lovely curly haired Mabs!xxxx.

A typically negative statement from Mick. Does your mum smack your bottom when you arrive home with wet smelly pants Mick ?
The moral to this story is. go out in old pants, shorts, or as they say in Wigan '' Stop a wom ''.

Poet, your poem tells me that you have seen in this photo what PeterP hasn’t. Great poem.

Brilliant Dave.
I was going to give you a knock and show you a couple of photos but one of them has appeared in todays album.

If you do not live local to the site of the photo I stand by what I printed .Poet had more question marks in his poem than answers and still know one has told me what Waggytail is? A field is a field who knows what is past the tree line unless you know the area?

lovely photo Dennis.Dogs are easy to fall in love with.They just need some love.Nice to hear about Mabs Veronica.They become part of the family.xx

Apparently it is a dog agility and exercise field, PeterP. I didn't know myself so have googled it. I had imagined it to be a holiday Kennels or a dog-walking service.

Dennis, that view of Winter Hill is familiar, are those fields on what was Brian's farm and stables, Stanley Nook Farm I think it was.

PeterP, according to the web it is an enclosed dog exercising and agility field, which owners can hire to exercise their dogs. Mick should be covered in Anise and placed in that field, then send in a pack of wet dogs with drooling mouths to give him sloppy kisses. §:¬)
