Take 1

I love my early morning walks-for me this is my best thinking time, its funny how ideas and thoughts just pop into your head when in fact you don`t realize your thinking about much at all ! I especially love my beach walks -on a sunny day its beautiful down there- you can access the beach via a board walk high up across the top of the sand dunes so you can enjoy a panoramic view of the beach and countryside all at the same time. It is so peaceful there all you hear are the skylarks and the sound of the surf breaking onto the beach.A few weeks back I found myself remembering a visit to the beach and how as kids we use to write our names in the sand [how many of us have done this I wonder ] and it gave me an idea ! How about writing ALS/MND in the sand and the words thank you underneath and video it , I thought it would make a nice gesture to all those who have supported us especially to our overseas supporters. So with that in mind I rounded up the family a few days later and we set off on a sunny Sunday morning armed with an assortment of gardening rakes ! Hubby stood at the board walk vantage point barking out instructions via a mobile phone -while we galloped round with the rakes-it was so windy-as fast as we managed to write the letters the wind dried them up !When we had finished we all stood atop of each letter and on a signal from Ned waved like lunatics !Well that was the idea , its the thought that counts !Thank you to every one for supporting and continuing to support us and Andrew we really appreciate it ! and from little acorns ...............This is where the next idea came from.Making the letters MND out of people on a welsh hillside some where!I think we better get the BBC to film that one Ned ! x ps. aunty Judy I loved the way you laughed all the way through that- the take 2 video ! x

What a grand idea! Yes, other situations are going to arise from this outing. How about putting John's chicken's in MND order...whoa that would take some figuring out!!!!Sorry humour is my first reaction to everything..it's in my genes/jeans!

What a beautiful area! Sounds like you are working very hard on the fund raising! That beach would be enough to rejuvenate anyone! I can see why you would get very inspired on your walks! I would love to do my morning running there!
