Whats making that shadow


Comment by DTease on 5th May 2019 at 07:56
Mick, do you wear a disguise when you go out? Going by your shadow it looks like you are wearing a cowboy hat and the kind of ankle length Mac our gasman used to wear in the 1950s. He had a bike like you as well.


Comment by kath on 5th May 2019 at 08:20
shocking. why are people so selfish and lazy?


Comment by jack on 5th May 2019 at 08:51
Mick, perhaps you could become the new Lobby Lud.

Orson Welles ( Harry Lime) 'The Third Man'!

What a disgusting mess - nothing but scum responsible. Is this the future generation that Wigan will be left to? ( 'England might well tremble')....

Thanks for posting this chronic indictment on Wigan's cleanliness. This site is the filthiest I have seen on the LL canal (the biggest single concentration of trash anywhere in Wigan?) and the land skirting the stretch of canal from the Britannia Bridge up to Rosebridge is also heavily contaminated with discarded beer cans. This has been here for many months now and, as its on private land, the Council / Canal and River Trust Volunteers will not touch it. But the Council must use their powers to get the landowners to clear it - its a massive embarrassment to the town.

Wonder if they ever imagined back in the 1950s when plastic production began what a bane to the planet it would become.


Comment by TommyT on 5th May 2019 at 14:53
Looks like it could be a drinking den for the present day "snowflakes".


Comment by Mick on 5th May 2019 at 17:06
DTease I wear a Gabardine Mac and an Australian drovers hat.
Doctor told me to wear a big hat to keep the sun off my ears because I was getting sun damage on them.


Comment by Helen of Troy on 5th May 2019 at 18:54
Tommy T...snowflakes was the term I was going to use in my rant the other day about the future generations but refrained but you are right they are snowflakes...they melt at the first sign of trouble !


Comment by DTease on 5th May 2019 at 20:18
Good thinking Mick, no one will ever recognize you dressed like that. Do you have the corks dangling on strings around your hat to keep the flys off?


Comment by Ken R on 6th May 2019 at 01:10
The shadow reminds me of "This is your storyteller the Man In Black"


Comment by Axcroft on 11th June 2019 at 19:03
Great News!
This is going to be cleared up!
So thanks for posting Mick.
Regards


"Dear sir
Following our recent correspondence our Beat it team will clear the waste from adjacent to the canal. I cant give the date this is will take place but we will get it cleared
Kind regards
Tom"
