No moon for us last night - too cloudy.  No pictures yet for this month's theme (Rae - The Elements: earth, air, water, fire) - no dramatic weather to speak of, though I'm grateful if this means we haven't had to suffer an earthquake, sunami or fire for the sake of a really good picture.  Haven't thought about an April topic yet.

Gone crazy. Back soon.

I've just been watching 'Waking The Dead' - and in it there is someone lurking about in the woods - The Bag Man.

I must admit, I actually thought 'this isn't the right sort of thing to watch just before bedtime!'

 

One evening a couple of years ago, we had a police helicopter circling over some trees a couple of hundred yards away in the middle of a field. It obviously disturbed me sufficiently that I couldn't sleep easily that night. I sat up in bed - eyes wide, and wondered if I would ever get to sleep, when I saw a very small blue light come through the window, and onto a mirror.

I got up to look out of the window, and there was a van parked in the road, and in its shadows was a well-built man, obviously hiding behind the van. The little blue light was his mobile phone, he was texting someone.

I woke up hubby (of course), and we watched him, only to discover he had an alsation with him, and when he ordered the dog over the 5-bar gate and onto the riverbank, we then saw he was a policeman. He was checking the whole of the riverbank.

By now we were both wide-eyed, though!!  surprised  surprised
