I was sat in wigan infirmary yesterday chatting to my mam who is in having treatment.
We were talking about relatives I didn't know from years ago.I was stunned at some of the characters we had in our family!
Some were well known locally too.Apparently my great uncle was known for living with both his wife and mistress, having children by both, going on holiday with both, and the wife and mistress even worked together.The rogue eventually parted from the mistress when he reached his seventies! WOW!
Another relative used to clog dance just outside wigan, I think there was a mound in the middle of the road around the area where middleton and woods is in wigan, he was well known for his clog dancing on it.......
On my dads side..........a relative was charged with shooting a mayor of wigan, he was poaching at the time, and got off as he had mistook the mayor for fair game..
Do any of you have characters like this from your past relatives?
