Ist August is always a special day here in God’s Country,as it is known locally.And I am always reminded of a special friend of many on Goy, Val,who is no longer with us,and just loved everything about Yorkshire ,which was her ‘user name’ .
I know all who knew her, miss her wonderful sense of humour,and her friendship


Our favourite Emblem,and of many today,
The White Rose of Yorkshire.xxx

Both my girls sent me a text at 6 and 6.30 respectively reminding me it was Yorkshire day. They are both Yorkshire and very very proud of their heritage. But I am a Mackum [born in Sunderland!] and Yorkshire via marriage.
