Droitwich on a Sunday Morning 10

If you want to see a picture of Joseph the Grandson, then tune into Mr Pig (a.ka. Blackpig)


And finally.......Droitwich is twinned with Bad Ems in Germany. This twinning took place in 1983 and the town was presented with this fine glazed terracotta tower made in Bad Ems in the style of the renowned Austrian painter and sculptor Friedensreich Hundertwasser (1928-2000) to mark the 25th anniversary in 2008.

Unlike yesterday's example, Bill, this is an utterly redundant bollard, even it is a polished gift from the bad Ems.
Bill Phillips: It is useless but decorative

Ha - the terrible truth revealed that Droitwich is twinned to a wet place in Germany!
Bill Phillips: Get back to soggy Bath.

Ah I understand now ... everyone in Droitwich has gone to Bad Ems leaving the town empty.
Bill Phillips: You have found me out

I wonder if at the other town there is a similar sign saying ' Bad Eggs'
Bill Phillips: If there is you will find it

Good to have something with knobs on. Is this outside a public toilet?
Bill Phillips: No but it wouldn't look out of place outside one

I think Bad Ems have added to the character of Droitwich, with their shiny tower. I like it smile
Bill Phillips: I rather like it. It is a bit different
I used to know a bad Em...
Bill Phillips: Shhhhhhhh you know who might see this

When you are trying to show the 'good' Droitwich, it might be a step backward to show that it has been twinned to someplace called Bad Ems.
Bill Phillips: Hahaha I think the Bad has something to do with it being a spa!
This is rather a fine thingy, as Elizabeth calls it, what a shame Philine is resting this week, she could have told us all about the place with the unusual name of Bad Ems.
Bill Phillips: There is a Website, http://www.bad-ems.de/vg_bad_ems/Home/ It does seem to be in German though
Well a safe distance then, you could exchange salvos of sausages to the benefit of all. Good series Bill.
Bill Phillips: I haven't been there but I am told it is a nice place
This is quite a long way Bill. Fine capture.
Bill Phillips: I wouldn't want to walk it Richard!
Is bad - bad or good in German?
It's all too much for me to grasp !
Bill Phillips: It is good....well I think it is
You've been twiddling again, you naughty man smile
Bill Phillips: No comment
I've never seen Droitwich look so good!
