When rested they will move again to the safety of Water Orton.
Their son John loved fresh picked peas. The daughter Edwina loves anything she can get.
The water of the river Tame is divine.

Life was great in Water Orton until Edwin stole some Bluebells and he was sent
to Coleshill to be thrashed. The whole family were branded as thieves.
What would they do next.

They told the judge that it was against the Law to thrash Travellers,and that they were allowed to pick bluebells as well as heather to make a living and sell them,under Romanie law,as well as Tarmacing.The judge had to let them off.

The police appealed stating that in days gone by the bluebell was and still is protected under prehistoric law.

But not to travellers ,they rule the roost and have complete control over the Police.They are frightened to enter the travellers sights for fear of prosecution

The chief inspector of police thought long and hard on how to solve the situation and challenged the head Traveler to a bare knuckle fight on the Village Green.....

Hello
No contest because he had trained in Summer Lane. The home of bare knuckle fighting,
He had a thought, move very quickly, get up close and swiftly raise the right knee.
It worked

The Canal was at the top of the field and the River at the bottom.
They wanted to go to the river to catch some fish for supper.
Half way down the field they suddenly sank up to the waist in mud.
The canal had overflowed in heavy rain.
What could they do now.

A shire horse was grazing in the next field and it came to help when
called. Grabbed by the main the horse tugged until he was free from the sinking mud.

He went down to the river to get some of the stinking mud of him and get clean,before going to the pub to meet his mate who knew how to make some extra cash flogging Mothballs.

Alas, business was bad as only a few male moths had pupated, mostly females that year. If you could get hold of some male moths balls, you might make a killing, or make the moth very happy......
