A celebration. Seventy years of peace. Victory in Europe was a blessed release. Here in the village where the Bronte’s once dwelt The war years are back so we know how it felt. As it was then, so it is today. The girls liked a Yank… and so did they! They danced in the streets, Glen Miller I think and when soldiers passed by, they gave them a… wink! The Germans for certain, were not welcome then But now? Of course! It’s only pretend. Spitfires were used to keep the Jerry at bay. Without them who knows what it would be like today! Was it busy like this all those decades ago? I’m sure that it was but I’m too young to know. What a great day, not a frown to be seen and so very colourful… if you like brown and green. With plenty to drink, and so much to eat Come visit here next year, it will be such a treat! Maybe I will see you there! (Haworth, England. May 2015) Click on pictures to enlarge.
