We walked back home via the river bank and waved to the Rosette as it passed us on it's next trip. After a quick snack and a sit down we were back on our feet for a walk up to the Big Apple Bowling Alley
Kirstyand MelMel was so thrilled when she got her first STRIKE! and did a celebratory dancePhil didn't actually play though he was quite happy to watch....secretly I think he was worried that one of us girls might beat him!!!!! As it was I won the first game and Mel won the second.....so it turned out the oldest and youngest were both winners!Some of you probably read my "Ghost Clusters Post"....Leanne had never visited the church and after seeing my photos of the orbs was quite keen to go there. It was dark by now so after a quick visit to MacDonalds (well we had to pass it...tee hee) and with it being such a lovely warm evening we thought we'd walk home that way......once again I took loads of photos (don't panic I'm not posting them all!) and although we saw nothing with the naked eye....... the camera saw all!!!!
again once the photos were lightened so many more orbs could be seen.........a copped close up of the orb by the small window from the photo aboveI also tried to take a photo of the beautiful full moon...this is the best of a bad bunch..It was funny because I took this photo of Leanne and we all thought that it was the moon at the top....until we realised the moon was shining in completely the opposite direction!!!!
this is a cropped close-up of that orb.....and in this photo of Phil there appears to be an orb hovering over his stomach.....
Finally I must show you Mel's favourite photo...this is a crop from a larger photo.....Mel's pretty sure this is a Fairy...possibly the Tooth Fairy who often visits her at the moment and leaves her £1 for a tooth!
Leanne & co are back home now and time for me to get the house ready for tomorrow as Lynn is coming to stay. Then I'll be able to show you what I bought her for her birthday!

Skittles has presented me with this treasured award....thank you Skittles...I shall treasure it
At the present time the person I'd like to present this award to is taking a break from blogging...I hope that she soon feels able to come back to Blogworld. Those of you who know her and her blog will also know the difficulties and tragic events that the last few years have brought her; yet despite her own health problems she has worked relentlessly in her quest to raise both money and awareness for the Clatterbridge Cancer Centre in memory of her dear friend Rose. So this award is for you Talj.....I'm sure I can say that this is presented to you from not only myself but on behalf of all your blogpals.......I hope it's not too long before we see your blog up and running again.

this is the above photo cropped to show a better view of one of the orbs......this is another crop to get a close up view of an orb................
On the following photo a few orbs can be seen ............but when I lightened it with the aid of Picasa so many more appear........
I showed this photo in another post........I didn't use a flash at all although it was really dark and have no explanation of the light emanating from the doorway................
Finally this is a photograph I took of Manda....again I was trying to take photos in the dark without a flash and my unsteady hand meant the photos were really blurred....I'd put this double image of a face down to that until I looked at it closely.......Manda was posing head turned to the side....how come there is also a face facing forward????
Also it wasn't until we put the photo on the computer and had a closer look at it that we noticed the shape of a person beyond her right shoulder..........yet there was no other living soul around.
Make of this post what you will......maybe there are scientific or rational reasons behind all of these happenings...but whatever your beliefs

Don't worry the postman didn't leave any nasty surprises in my mail...the bills are all duck BILLS! Yesterday I went to the Duck Race and Fun Day in aid of St Andrew's Church . There was plenty to do and see especially for the children.....you could decorate your own duck hat, sponsor a duck in the race, have a go on the rides and even buy candyfloss and popcorn!
The weather was lovely and it was nice to lounge around on the grassThere was a beer tent....and somewhere for those who had drunk a little too much to lie down....LOLI managed to win a rabbit and teapot on the soft toy stall and the tombola..........There was a Karate display...both adults and children took part...and I know who to call if I ever need some bricks broken!!!!!!!Chris had a kick about with one of his nephews...limbering up for the Tug O' WarIn the first Tug o' war the teams were rather unbalanced....little kids versus big kids after the first round Father Jamie and a couple of Dad's helped out and the little kids won!!!!
Now it was time for the major attraction...the DUCK RACE! ..on your marks, ready, get set, go!and 3000...yes 3 THOUSAND...small rubber ducks started to float down the river.....despite the efforts of the canoeists who did their best to free them...a few got caught in the rushes............
but slowly the ducks made their way..............the first one neared the the finish...... and we have a WINNER! The nearest we can get to a "claim to fame" with our ducks is that Chris's cousin's duck came 9th.It was a really enjoyable day and the weather was perfect...not too hot and not too cold...Divine Intervention????..................and Manda made a new friend.....I'm not sure what flower this moth thought Manda's legs were!Today Leanne and co are coming to stay for a few days so I won't have much chance for blogvisiting.......Hmmmmm...I wonder if I can drag them out to the bowling alley................
