Photo-a-Day (Friday, 27th September, 2013)
Another nice one Mick....might just put it in the album... :) ...cheers!!!!
I remember the colours in a rainbow by `Richard of York Gave Battle in Vain.`
Hence: Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, Blue, Indigo, Violet.
Speaking of battles, the
Wigan and the English Civil Wars Re-enactment Day is tomorrow 28th September 2013.
Based on the photo, the pot of gold must be in Shevington.
Good pic, Mick.
Nice photo Mick of a pleasantly rejuvenated village. Ernest, i have always remembered the rainbow as ROY G BIV, it helps when you share your name with the first three colours,not much else to remember then.
Visited Crooke recently hoping the tipper was still in existence. Met very helpful gentlemen who told me all about the village and recommend the Crooke Village website. Thanks chaps if you see this.
For the rainbow,our physics teacher at the Grammar School (Mr. Alec "Yogi" Robinson) suggested, 'Rowntrees of York Give Best in Value'. A great teacher at a great school !
That`s a good one Marcus and a good picture Mick.
Very well snapped Mike, in the right place at the right time. A little touch of magic
Crooke is a nice place now but years ago it used to be rough, with some rough familys.
Shevington never had a burglary until after they knocked down Woodcock Row and moved all the familys up the the new housing estate.
'Somewhere over the rainbow, weigh a pie'
Well it is in Wigan!
"Read Of Your Good Books In Verse"
Was the "aid memoir", normally taught to remember the rainbow colours.
How old were you Mick when Woodcock Row was demolished?
Still harping on about "Council Houses people"?...:o(
Richard of York gave battle in vain:
A spectre spectra in the rain!
Wil o' the wisp sounds rather camp:
But this we learned was 'Firedamp'!
I dreamed that one day I would be free:
But is this too illusory?
