The journeys of Becky, blind from retinitis pigmentosa, and her beauitiful guide dogs.
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

Shopping finds. Retinitis Pigmentosa
Steve and I have shopped together for 28 years - one of our first dates was near Halloween. He was 'just a friend' and I was telling him I was really tired of going on dates to Haunted Houses! He was going grocery shopping and asked if I wanted to go with him - yes! We've been having fun ever since shopping together. He's a great sport and will describe and help me find anything. Anyone else love the Halloween candy? My favorites Reese's and Peeps and also fit the prescription from the dentist to avoid hard candy after my broken tooth. My favorite healthy treat - Atkins Protein Bar - almond/blueberry. On the days when I go running, I find by 10 I get really hungry and they give me a boost.
My other shopping treasures for the week: my new purple tee from Guide Dogs for the Blind Gift Shop. Awesome raised braille. Capital T ea m of Capital T w o
and this very special gold pin that says GDB (above the harness) and then in braille team.
My other shopping find of the week is my red cover with a keyboard for my ipad. Love it. Still learning the voice over.
