• Hope you did these and the 'Honky Donkey' wave powered organ down by the pier! - Manky Maxblack
  • Sadly I did neither! The light was fading fast and I was determined to get to the glitterball. So I did that, the spikey thing, the wind turbines and the whale-shaped seats, but missed out the curvy lights and didn't even see the sea organ!

Sally, Sally, pride of our alley

Newer Older

Sally, Sally, pride of our alley
You're more than the whole world to me.

Sally, Sally, don't ever wander
Away from the alley and me

- Gracie Fields, Sally

Update: here's one that didn't work so well. ;¬)

This is Sally, a 1-year-old Golden Retriever pup I met on the prom. Behind her are her owner Derek and Yorkshire Terrier pal Suzie.

Sally was, amazingly, both the most energetic and the most obedient dog I have ever met. Derek was able to tell her to stay while I backed away with the camera, then as soon as I called her she was off like a shot and actually bowled me over a couple of times.

The name reminded me of that old Gracie Fields song which I proceeded to sing to myself (in a silly voice, of course) all the way back along the prom. Gracie Fields, while not from Blackpool, was famously born above a chip shop in Rochdale, so it seemed an appropriate feme toon for a Lancastrian setting.
