Well I don't know where to start on this one, I seems George is popping up all over the place!!
Your probably looking at that photo and thinking whats that got to do with the name George, well we didn't think it had anything to do with it, but a couple of weeks ago mom decided that I could do with a new header photo and thought Lilleshall Hill would be the place.
It looked to be quite high, but turned out to only take 15 minutes to climb!!.
Now wind and my fuzz hair don't go, sorry Eric I forgot to get me some must ash wax!!
so we had to move around to get out of it, oh look a game of cricket
Rights lets get onto this Monument and have a look,
Now I call these BIG STEPS!!
(you will have seen this photo in the last post!)
Mom had to give me a leg up.
This is the view from the other side
We carried on walking around it, and found two plaques
and this one
Which had on it
TO THE MEMORY OF
GEORGE GRANVILLE LEVESON GOWER K.G.
FIRST DUKE OF SUTHERLAND
THE MOST JUST AND GENEROUS OF LANDLORDS
THIS MONUMENT IS ERECTED
THE OCCUPIERS OF HIS GRACES SHROPSHIRE FARMS
AS A PUBLIC TESTIMONY THAT HE WENT DOWN TO HIS GRAVE
WITH THE BLESSINGS OF HIS TENANTS ON HIS HEAD
AND LEFT BEHIND HIM UPON HIS ESTATES
THE BEST INHERITANCE WHICH A GENTLEMAN OF ENGLAND
CAN BEQUEATH TO HIS SON

Those Elgin Pugs just look at that pretty building its called The Butterman's Mansion built in 1889. It is located within The ELGIN Historic District, hey is that where you got your name from? Thanks So much, I'm running out of room on my bedroom wall, so mom said she will get me a memory box, so I can put all these nice things in. Then on rainy days I can get them out and look at all the lovely things you have sent me. She also said she would print out all the photo's you have emailed me and they can go in the box to.
