Ahoy Mick. I hope you managed to grab it and tie it alongside.

Captain:" This is the shortest canal I've ever sailed on".
First mate:" Aye sir, but look at the width of it!"

Bet GDubya (GW) is onboard- he went missing a while back in search of coconuts down under!


Comment by DTease on 29th May 2018 at 10:22
Looks like GW's crew as mutinied and cast him adrift on the briny blue. Will he make it back to dry land? Tune in for next weeks exciting episode!


Comment by DTease on 29th May 2018 at 12:22
Veronica, it's GWs favourite pastime that, searching for his coconuts down under.


Comment by Veronica on 29th May 2018 at 15:55
The boat seems to be listing to one side ...I recall he hired two fat ladies to go on that voyage with him after the second in command missed the boat. That's it! Mystery solved .... He's probably 'locked' in the hold!


Comment by Anne on 29th May 2018 at 17:06
Maybe, two fat ladies locked in the lavatory from Monday to Saturday and nobody knew they were there.

Ship ahead there was water here once .
Captain , it is land now see, as I spread my arms to show you . We can sail no more here ..
We have the wind behind us and glory beyond that , Move with haste !
But to what place Captain ?
Through this wall lad for starters .
We are surrounded Captain with no place go
Then throw the guns , blast the peasants to hell for daring ....
We have no guns left Captain
Then we must retreat to a bay to regroup and come again .
Wigan or our ship Captain?

I wonder whats happened to Maggie she certainly would have commented on this photo particularly since it is Platt Bridge

GDub's locked the girls below
Their banging sounds like thunder.

And then he goes atop and says
"My god! We're starboard under."


Comment by Veronica on 30th May 2018 at 10:33
GDub is on the run and now a 'Wanted' man,
He's posing even now as 'Man with Van"
And doing all the jobs he can
To work his way back down under
and escape with all his blessed plunder.
His coconuts remain intact-
But of his 'real' identity there's still no fact!
Oh dear, oh dear!


Comment by Philip Gormley. on 30th May 2018 at 15:12
Girl (1st Class), her nerves on edge, she looks for Master Ludd?
Perhaps she knows a little more, while he locates 'the grub'.

She holds him dear, and wants him back; they'd sup on giddy beers
Yet all he left was just one book, with thanks from Raymond Mears.
