She's adorable! Looks like you're having decent weather- this was Mothers Day on this side of the pond,
.....mother Nature wasn't very kind to us in Ontario. We've had wet snow, the Temperature is supposed to drop to zero tonight;....and the fan on our furnace has died, so no heat and I'm FFFFREEEEZING!!!!
FABULOUS - so nice to see that the crazy golf is being used. Well done the volunteers who have made it possible.
That is a smashing picture John......I am so glad to see that the Crazy Golf is fixed up for all to enjoy.....A big fan of this pastime I am....cheers!!!
On the PGA Tour, Tiger Woods won The Players Championship in Florida yesterday and got $1,710,000. David Lynn, born in Billinge, tied 26th and got $67,450. Total purse $9,500,000.
On the Ladies European Tour, Lee-Ann Pace, from South Africa, won The Turkish Airlines Ladies Open yesterday and got 37,500 euros. Total purse 250,000 euros.
haha that's a belter :)
Nice to see a child being a child for once!
Great Photo. Crazy golf open? Time for the Wigan World P-A-D CG challenge?
Aw, bless her! This phot is a cracker, Thank you.
Great Picture John.
Edna loves it, worth all the work we are putting in on the crazy golf just to see that smile.
Ep why are you comparing a nice photo of a little girl enjoying herself with what PGA golfers earned yesterday?
Could be anywhere! Wigan photo's only please.
Great photo. I think she needs a little work on her stance though!
It could be anywhere, but it is in Haigh Country Park... which was in WIGAN when I went to school.
Don't be such a misery... Its a nice pic of a lovely little girl and everyone except you has enjoyed it.
peterp, when I saw this photo of the little girl, I thought of her growing up to be a professional golfer also, John calls her Tigress
Ernest I see where you are coming from
What a little cracker!
Despite you saying its in Haigh Country park, tricia, one would never know by looking. Nice photo but it should be in the 'people' section.
Jane's a fruit and nutcase.
Thought the petty miserable comments only came from 2 male readers they have met their match!!
Charming picture ..wherever its from !
Janice you have to wait for me...will check my bus timetable....hee..hee...cheers!!!
Thanks for all the comments folks and I am glad that it has given so much pleasure. Yes Janice we must organise the P-a-D tournament I am certainly up for it and as a "Friend" can organise the course. As for your comment Jane, a clue to the location was in the second line of the caption. The re-vamped crazy golf is a source of both interest and pleasure and therefore I would suggest is a fitting subject for the Photo-a-Day slot, and this way of showing it (giving pleasure) was my interpretation of this.
Ellen, what did you do when you lived in wigan. Love to see kids having fun.
Jane, you could be photographed in a Wigan picture...
Simply this "kit off, where t'bobby stands"....Is that near enough to qualify for a real "Wigan" pic?..;o)
Jean F (wales)2 male readers?
I doubt that Jane is male!
Gerald, the simple answer would be I grew up in Holland Moor and left to go to Leeds for Nursing training, then working there until eight months before I emigrated. During that eight months, not wanting,or able to find a temporary job in nursing,I worked at a stocking factory in Skelmersdale new town!
where are you now ellen
Gerald, for the past 25years I've lived in Walkerton,Ontario. Before that lived in Scarboorough, where I worked at Scarborough General Hospital (now The Scarborough Hospital)
