Today is Blind Americans Equality Day, formally know as White Cane Safety Day. Since 1964 today has been a date where the achievements of blind people have been celebrated. Primarily this has been done through showcasing the white cane, and subsequently guide dogs, and raising awareness of the White Cane Law.
For me, today was a busy day. Uschi and I observed White Cane Day by waking up at an ungodly hour for a Saturday and then booking to to Albany for my incredibly overdue hair appointment. After that surprisingly long appointment, we headed straight back home to meet up with Jenn, Greg and Mandy and then sped off to Alice and Josh’s to help out with their move. In exchange for our assistance in packing and lugging their stuff across the Capital District, we were fed both lunch and dinner. And I am now so exhausted from the day I can’t recall much more than that other than my dog was quite a good girl given the circumstances.
I shall go faceplant into my bed now.
