Day 70 - Gone But Remembered Forever!

Sunday, June 28th, 2009

Hi everyone,Strange mix of weather we are experiencing at the moment.¬† We can go from small seas with the sun out to stormy conditions and really strong wind requiring the para anchor, which is frustrating.¬† The sun is out at the moment which makes a nice change.Both Andy and myself have been saddened to learn of the death of Jackson.¬† We took a fair bit of his stuff on the i-Pods and have been playing it today which has been strange.¬† My favourite song is Dirty Diana which I reckon is a classic, he will be missed but his music will last forever.Thank you again to everyone for your messages of support particularly of late¬†Mark C, Moses and Neil Tutton.¬† The have lifted our mood lately and¬†remind us¬†that we are doing the right thing.Also whilst writing I would like to encourage everyone back home following our progress to get involved in this year’s Barns Green half marathon which is becoming something of a tradition in the Watts household and both Andy and myself have done it in recent years, even carrying an inflatable boat to raise money for the cause.¬† We would love as many people as possible to have a go at it later this year and hope to get a good turnout with a big meal to follow as usual.Andy and¬†I did a food stock take earlier only to¬†discover that our supply of flap jacks have gone mouldy early today which we are both upset about as they are a rare treat.That’s about all for now, but thank you all as ever we appreciate your thoughts and messages of support - they are very much keeping us going.See you all soon
