My aim was to bring happiness

In response to your recent coverage in previous publications, regarding Messages in the Sand

I would like to express my sincere thanks to everyone who has commented and supported me on my daily quotes in the sand at Orcombe Point.

My aim was to make many people smile and to be happy. From all your comments I feel I have achieved that.

I would like also to bring to the attention of the lady who was not amused, you cannot please everyone all of the time. My graffiti was not of the kind that is left on buildings etc, mine was removed, either by constant walking over or by the wind blowing it away, so is this graffiti?

Many of you said you would miss my messages in the sand when I leave. As you may now be aware, I am no longer working on the seafront and am currently seeking work.

Many thanks once again.

PS - For those of you following my messages, you may remember I asked my girlfriend to marry me.

I am still awaiting her reply.
