‘Walking in the rain with the one I love’ runs through my head every time I walk in the rain, especially if I’m with someone I love. Sung by Love Unlimited and released in 1972, it was produced by Barry White, who was the sexy voice on the phone.
Tonight daughter and I braved the torrents of rain to walk along the beach with dog. Drenched within seconds of leaving the car we strode into the face of the wind driven downpour, our clothes not covered by raincoats were sodden and clung to us. Did we mind? No, we didn’t!
April 30th 2021 would’ve been Captain Tom Moore’s 101st birthday; in recognition and in remembrance of his achievement, a new challenge was announced by his family. They challenged ordinary folk to complete a hundred somethings to raise more funds for The Captain Tom Foundation – ‘whether you bake 100 cupcakes or walk 100 laps – help celebrate Captain Tom’s achievements.’ The official ‘Captain Tom 100’ has now finished, but I’ve challenged myself to write a 100 word blog each day for 100 days. I started on May 1st and when I complete my task, I’ll donate £100 to his Foundation.
