Disabled people want their rights, but not the responsibilities that come with it.

It is very interesting that I have heard this phrase twice this month and never before. Two different people said this on two different occasions. The first person, is a service coordinator that is deaf her self. The second person is a great disabilities advocate, which has C.P. him self.

I hope they are not trying to tell me that I have been slacking on my King Gimp duties. I would like to think that I have been holding up on my end of the deal. Even thou at times my crown becomes thorny, I do want can to obtain the answers. When I don’t I seek them out, or point in right direction to find the right wizard.

A visit to a 4th Grade class.

As always everything went wonderful at McDonogh yesterday. When talking with 4th graders, I think it’s important to let them know. It’s ok to be yourself and life is More interesting when you have friends that a bit different from their self.
After spending an hour with the students we like to see how well they can understand me. I left them with this sentence: Everyone can contribute to life. %90 of the students had no problem putting that together.

Time Always Wins

For a few months now Dena and I have saying we need to get a new dishwasher before this one goes up. Well the alarm just went off, Monday I notice a bubble starting on the ceiling in the location of the dishwasher in the kitchen. I email Tom from Peli Construction because he said now his mission to make the house last. That really makes me emotional, he was sent here for a bathroom job and now is my go to guy. Tom had one of his guys stop by a few days later and confirm my thoughts. The sink is dry underneath, so it must be the dishwasher. We caught in time, because it might only dripping for now and could get worse. Wifey might be happy now that my head does look around like a bird.
