Seeing Eye Trainer Visits – Blue’s Work on the Fixed Route Busses – 239 Emails and Growing

Good morning, everyone.
I hope you’re all doing well.
Tuesday, and yesterday, I was privileged to have a Seeing Eye trainer with me in the area where I live. He spent some time helping me to smooth out a few wrinkles I have where Blue is concerned.
Blue is uncomfortable on the fixed route busses, and though no one knows why, I have been working diligently to help him overcome this issue.
He is doing much better, and Chris the trainer who came to visit seemed to think he could overcome it. I however, stated Blue could not do large amounts of that work at one time and Chris agreed that might be so, but that we were doing a good job.
Other than this issue, Blues work is deemed solid, and I agree 100 percent. I want the fixed route bus as an option for when there’s no availability on the door-to-door van service Etc. It does allow for spontaneous traveling. I sometimes wake up in the mornings feeling good and if I know about something happening in the area, or learn of it as the day goes on, being able to leap up, grab my dog and take off out the door to go enjoy it would be nice.
My favorite mode of transportation is walking. While I’m not in a safe area for us to walk now, I am looking to move into a new area soon which will provide more opportunities. I am on a waiting list for an apartment in that area, but it is going to take time. I cannot wait to be able to walk where I want to go when I want to.
Walking does a couple of things. First, it allows me and Blue to get exercise. Something we both desperately need. Next, it allows me to have control of when I go and come, where I go and how long it takes me to get there.
While I need to work on my stamina now that I’ve not been walking as much as I once did, I know I can regain my ability.
I might move a bit slower; I sometimes get scattered and flustered when I’m concentrating too hard, or if I am nervous which makes me chatter a bit too much or forget things but overall, with Blue by my side, I feel I can accomplish what I set out to do.
For now, I’ve 239 emails and growing. I am going to have a devil of a time catching up. There are several things needing my attention today, and I’ve also got an ACB community call to facilitate later at: 1 PM eastern.
Busy, Busy, Busy. And glad of it
