My little red tether is my anchor in running with my friends. A beautiful guide dog has been my tether/anchor in mobility and independence for 17 years: 1. Pantera 2. Cricket, and now my beautiful 3. Georgina (Georgie). A life of family and friends is my joy and anchor in life.

The human spirit is stronger than anything that can happen to it. CC Scott

RP Shins

It seems, my shins and above my right eye are often the places that take the brunt of my Retinitis Pigmentosa! Today someone at the agency moved the benches in the hallway. I typically let Cricket stay under my desk and snooze while I walk down this hallway to invite my next client to my room. In my head I know where these benches are ... one was moved today and bang! I now have two bloody shins where I crashed into this bench. Yes, I know there was a very cute four-legged mobility girl snoozing under the desk that I need to invite out on this walk ... Happy Monday!

I do that to myself a lot--even though I can see where I'm going. I can't seem to ever grow out of the scabby knees phase!

Oh boy I bet that hurt. Ouch! Of course, I run into things all the time cause I get into a rush. I try to tell myself to slow it down.

You must have been going at a tremendous lick to have bashed yourself up like that! I catch the edge of my elbow on my door handle every now and again while stepping over Au (senior Cat)snoozing in the doorway. And does Au look guilty or sorry? Nope. Never. Hope Cricket was suitably sympathetic.

Yikes, Becky!
This scenario is so familiar. . . .
