..... and snail mail....

.... and this for Becky.....

Ahhhh.... and yet a contest.......

A nine-year-old Cheshire schoolgirl has broken the world record for having the most snails on her face at once. Tiana Walton allowed 25 of the slimy creatures to cover her eyes, nose and mouth – beating the previous record of 15 held by Australian Liam Kenny.
Before her record breaking attempt, now in the Guinness Book of World Records, Tiana’s previous personal best was just nine.
She had just one minute to put the snails on her face and then had to tip her head forward for 10 seconds. Any snails that fell off during that period were not counted.
