Another Walk on the Tame side

Remember when we took a walk on the Tame side in February (see archive if you have time on your hands). Many of you took my advice and spent your summer hols there.
This is the second part of our journey for those who fancy a late autumn break.

Here's an old friend to wish us 'Bon Voyage'. I suppose Man City was paying for all these ads.

You will find gourmet restaurants with traditional English dishes.

Choose from a wide selection of drinks lagers to accompany your meal..

Be assured that your security is of paramount importance to us.

Hello - what's NiC doing here? Now we know where he finds all that wonderful wild life.
Thrill to the Rabelaisian delights of the Tunnel of Love. Here's where you can experience a famous 'Tameside Knee Trembler'.

More high diving facilities.

Fancy a punt (that's Punt)? Can anyone tell me why the weeping willow doesn't grow long enough to dip into the water?

It just seems to stop on the surface.

And finally the retail therapy you were all waiting for....

Well, I was wondering where to go for my 3 month sabbatical next year.

This has helped me decide.

I've always wondered that about weeping willows

looking at the Tunnel of Love has made me shiver, rather than tremble

You're doing for Tameside what Tony Blair did for Iraq Kaz.

(The weeping willows dissolve in the neat nitric acid when they touch the canal surface.)

that's not fair that damn dog is too clever, I was going to say the willows dissolve on contact with the canal, however I was going for hydrochloric rather nitric - probably more likely doncha think?

Lovely selection as ever Kaz.

How long have these people pretending to be me, though? I knew I should have copyrighted my name displayed like that! NiC indeed.

Anonymous NiC said... for the willow...interesting question. They don't ever grow too long to trail along the ground either. There must be some (anti-?)auxin thing going on but how they know they're about to touch the water I don't know.

As for pondering the weeping willow, YOU'RE the science teacher, aren't you?

Number 3's what I CALL a picnic.

Happy to help.

Shiver - tremble ..what's the difference when you're having a good time?

You can be very cruel sometimes.

They would turn into 'willow nitrate' Wi(NO3)2

To make willow chloride WiCl2.

(Puts on polite voice) I think both are equally likely

Well I wouldn't expect you to own up!

It looks like Dougal the dog doesn't it? Perhaps I'll ask him.

I only do chemistry and I only do it indoors.
I even had to look up 'auxin'.

Those bloody teddy bears.

oh! Kaz... you've spoiled all my hard work getting folk to 'Flock' back to good old Tameside... it's a dump for sure. I have to spend hours clearing away all the rubbish before I take any of my pictures, then I get big Pete to spray everything green.
How about doing a write up on Shameside hospital... now that would make for a good read.

Blogger KAZ said...

I'm so sorry Wom.

As I said in the other post - I love it along the Huddersfield canal - but I love all of it especially the old mills.
I even like some of the grafitti.

Whenever I see that Asda sign I'm always tempted to push a trolly over that red line just to see if it really works and stops it. Never dared put it to the test though.

I came across some of our local grafitti the other day, it just said 'Made You look' I took a picture and will post it tonight. I drove down the road after towards Hyde from Duckinfield and I notice it another 3 times.

wow! Oregon! you live in Oregon!

I'm so sorry.

Ah but mine looks like it says something

the [cherry]ride:
You won't regret it - but if you fly Virgin watch out for Richard Branson in the toilet.

I'll do it if you will.

Towards Hyde from Duckinfield is definitely the right direction to travel.

Thanks for the sign - I've been over to see it.

Isn't that the 'Beaver state'?
I bet mj gave it that name.

er yes .. (thinks) the gal's under a lot of strain at the moment.

Blogger MJ said...

Just because Canada's national symbol is the beaver does not mean I go around anointing everything in site with that moniker.

Blogger KAZ said...

Methinks you protest too much.
Come to think off it - what sort of a shot is that avatar?

10:15 am  
Blogger MJ said...

What sort of a shot?

Straight up.

No ice.

Blogger KAZ said...

Well thank god for that!
