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

Part of the Family

Steve, Cricket and I went to Oliver tonight at the Hale Theater. We have had season tickets this year and have really enjoyed the plays. Steve has really enjoyed them even when it means leaving exciting football games ... well almost! This time of year, there will be another one soon! Luckily, the Aggie Football game that went into overtime had finished - Go Aggies - before we left! Cricket and I just can't stop dancing to Consider yourself part of the family. Cricket is indeed a very important part of the family.

Sometimes I am asked - how do you enjoy what seems like a very visual event - a play, ballgame, musical, movie? Perhaps I'm a little like Cricket, I enjoy simply going and being with someone I love :). Then, with some verbal cues (city scene in London, for example - more detail as needed) you can follow the story line pretty well. I prefer a movie with a good story line rather than a major action packed movie. I think whether or not I could see that would be my preference, however. Give me a deep, touching story any time!
