We apologize for the sound quality, the taping was done by a very generous volunteer (Thank you Ariella!) and she was unable to get in any closer with her camcorder at this live performance...still, I think you get the main message. Our plan is to make a second recording at the walk tomorrow (their final performance and get a in a bit tighter...their facial expressions are priceless too!)

PP. I changed my photo and name to LauaX kind of as a joke...only my regular readers will get it...but I kind of like speaking for the trees with my vibrant hair!!!!  so if you receive a comment from someone you THINK is new in your comment box...it's JUST ME. Laura...being silly, adding the X...I need a little eXtra oomph these days...and being playful seemed just the re-energizing choice.

PPS. Speaking of energizer...the Energizer Bunny finally delivered a new charger and new re-chargable batteries so I have extras!!!! off to take some photos this morning on the way to the poody-salon...Ellie's starting to look like a reggae poodle...dreadlock ears, Oh, my.

  1. Hi Laura X What a great post .I hope that more people walk for a world without starvation. Let's spend our money on food and help to those who need it. Let's stop buying arms and war material.

  2. I should like to understand the video. I hear a few sentences because I am getting a bit deaf. Still it's great that children realise that we live in very great circumstances, and that millions of children are not so fortunate.

  6. Good thing they're not walking in Seattle. We're expecting the first storm of the season!
    LauraX is the perfect name for the woman with hair the color of Fall leaves.
    Re: your PPS - There's nothing as knotted as a cocker spaniel's ears after they've been running in the rain.
