Where Past Meets Present

Through the Extraordinary Talent of Yorkshire Born and Bred Author

Ronnie Bray BA [Hons]

   

   These Folk Tales are drawn from reports, often scant, in obscure journals, histories, newspapers, unusual publications, broadsheets, folk songs, annals, and a variety of antiquarian sources wherein are noted extraordinary events in the lives of a unique breed of folk that made Yorkshire what it is, just as Yorkshire made them what they were, and still are down to this present time.  

   Whether you seek a nostalgic jaunt into the past, a peek at an earlier ages when Yorkshire was rising from the white hot crucible of its turbulent history, whether you want to get in touch with your roots, or if you scratch you head at vocal expressions of Yorkshire Patriotism, you sure to enjoy a revival of your jaded whimsy, and elevation of mind, a tickling of your fancy, a stirring of your blood, and unexpected fire that will make your inner lamp burn brighter and brighter than it ever has done.  

   These stories are essential elements of the heritage of those of the Blood Royal of Yorkshire's Broad Acres whose importance in part is the provision of insights as to why Yorkshire Folk are fiercely independent, bluntly honest, honestly blunt, outspoken, opinionated, and equipped by nature and events to dispense uncomfortably accurate estimates of your character whether you want to hear them or not.  

   Yorkshire men know the difference between fact and fiction, sincerity and flannel, truth and downright lies and between 'an horticultural implement' and 'a bloody shovel!'  Humming and Hawing and beating around the bush are not traits found in Yorkshire Folk unless the Erlkönig has led them astray, which is extremely unlikey .

  Despite these sterling virtues, Yorkshire Folk are the best friends and neighbours you could wish for, and have the warmest and most hospitable and sympathetic hearts in the world.  It is hoped that 'furriners' and 'comers-in' will enjoy meeting Yorkshire folk and their unique quirks.  

 Tales that touch on wrongdoing bear subtle invitations to self-scrutiny so that we are led to reflect on our own characters, and prompted to ask what we must do to become nicer and more considerate.  It's not exactly Sunday School, but truth, morality, and common courtesies are Laws of Life that demonstrate that every act has consequences that can be far reaching, and often produce the opposite of what is intended!  

  However, since the Adamic Tongue is known only to denizens of The Garden of Eden, the Celestial Kingdom, and the Yorkshire Thridings, I have translated such spontaneous outbursts into my second language, which is ‘English-More-or-Less!’
