Oh, looks like Niagara.

I never knew there was a waterfall . I suppose its because we never went that side of the park . It looks very natural. Nice photo Mick.

That's lovely, and a good view of the cafe as well.

Bare trees and a bloke wearing a wooly hat ?

Definitely not in the last few days or months even. But it’s nice - I like it. Wonder if the bike’s got a puncture…

Looks like Gregory Porter to me, he's got friends who live in Wigan, and it's rumored that he will be headlining at Wigan Jazz Festival

Played footie in the Park , mi dad and me ,
So far back now , but still I see ,
He caught it clean, a volley that is ,
and we gawped as young uns
at what he did .
Young or old, a volley hit true ,
Stays forever , like mi dad does to ..

Due to the main events going on in the world at the moment Dtease patches for punctures are not available. They just cannot be found anywhere… unless he’s gone to Indonesia to find some rubber trees whilst also watching the sun go down over the ocean. I believe it’s a sublime scene to see it drop down into the vast depths of the sea whilst drinking a sundowner. On the other hand it may be on eBay as you say.

It won’t go down very well with the Parish Council, Veronica. They’ll have to get someone else to patrol the boundaries of Shangri La.

I’d just like to go on record to state that I’m heartily sick of the plethora of damned adverts that have been appearing on this site ever since it changed over to its new format .

The penultimate thing that I expect however is for anything to improve , as this site appears to be definitely headed down the pan in my view .

And in common with many of my previously ignored posts , the very last thing that I expect is for this one to be published .

So , come on Ron , surprise me .

Anyroad , time to move on I reckon .

And a little less cheering wouldn’t come amiss either .

A bientôt. Ozy .

Well he has one or two pals Dtease (not mentioning any names)
But he used to sell newspapers in the old arcade. ..I’ll let you guess , even Ozy could stand in for him for that matter… he has a Frankenstein bike made up of many parts! :o))
