No. 547 #YorkshireDay


Happy YORKSHIRE DAY!! By Prof. Carrot-phwack Singleton © 2016

If I was to try and describe my beloved God’s County I would start by saying: Eee, by gum, it’s a bloody stunner, tha knows!

We have everything any other county has all packed into one!
We have the rolling valleys of the Dales, green and lush.
The history, the castles,
The fish and chips.
The sportsmanship.
The sense of humour,
The stunning girls,
The beer,
The food!
The air!
The people who care!
The honesty,
The literature,
The art,
The inventors,
The music,
The love of life.
The hot Yorkshire wife!
The Yorkshire Pud.
The Yorkshire Tea.
The beautiful coastlines
Of the great Yorkshire sea!
The pride to be born
Under the great white rose.
To be the lucky ones that
God kindly chose!
We happily cry!
As we raise a glass to
Her beautiful sky!



About Chris42

I am a liar! A maker-uper of stories! If this was the 16 (c) I'd be burned as a witch. Fank goodness it is not, eh?! I have four children: two wonderful girls, a fantastic lad and Leeds United. I have no strict genre. I write children's poetry and stories, to edgy, stronger themes. Up until now I have stored them for my own and my family's viewing. Last year i thought bugger it and starred in several short films. One, Playground, which is on the BBC Film Network, used the monologue that I wrote for the audition. You should've seen the face of the receptionist, of the Manchester hotel, where the audition was being held, as I turned up dressed as the psychopath, Gordon. It got the desired effect! I then moved up to Cumbria and wrote and appeared in several live performances on stage. 2012. A local artist, Kayleigh Richardson, commissioned me to write a poem for her to paint a representation. I sent her, The Rise of the Robot Monkey Army. Kayleigh painted a fantastic piece that blew my mind! From that we are collaborating on the Jacob Bear series of stories. Oh and Two's Company is to published, along with seventeen other Sci Fi short stories as part of a collection. Not a bad start to the, so called, last year of the Earth. Now is the time to show the rest of you. I take my themes wherever i see them, whether in reality or dream-world. I hope you enjoy. If not tell me why. If so tell me why. Many thanks and be safe. So far I have published: Jacob Bear's first Christmas,https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B007GK872A (UK) http://www.amazon.com/dp/B007GK872A (USA) Jacob Bear Goes to School https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B007JD3OKY (UK) http://www.amazon.com/dp/B007JD3OKY (USA Jacob's First Words https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B007VZWPSC (UK) & http://www.amazon.com/dp/B007VZWPSC (USA) Space Here https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B007H96M90 (UK) &http://www.amazon.com/dp/B007H96M90#reader_B007H96M90 The Rise of the Sponge Cake Moon https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B007WWZ16M (UK) & http://www.amazon.com/dp/B007WWZ16M (USA) © Madstoffa, 2012.

  1. I had no idea there was such a thing as Yorkshire Day. Do you eat Yorkshire puddings?
    This weekend in BC Day here (aka British Columbia Day) we do not eat Nanaimo bars, but we should. Usually our day is spent on a beach or in a mall.
    Happy local celebration Day to you! 😉
