Odds & Ends

Just a few more odds and ends from the meeting with the O&M guy.

Have a spare set of keys for the vehicle you usually ride in. If you cannot find the car when you come out of the store, hit the panic button and then quickly turn it off. That will give you an idea of where the car is parked and will also notify the person waiting in the vehicle to be on the outlook for you.

If you have something dark you often trip over, put a strip of contrasting duct tape on it. Amazon, of course, has all sorts of crazy duct tape. You should also be able to buy it at your favorite craft store.

This was one I should have thought of for myself. For those of us who need transportation and must pay exact change, the bank will ‘sell’ you a sleeve of 100, one dollar bills. You can also get rolls of coins. No more scrounging for singles.

The O&M guy’s answer to my dilemma with the women at Cracker Barrel was simply to ask if she was having vision problems. If she said yes, he would give her the BVS information. Short and sweet.

These next two paragraphs are me talking: Problem is many of these people are not working or trying to go back to work. That means there is not a lot of government money to pay for services. Services are limited as compared to services offered us who are working or want to work.

I guess the moral to that story is to work with the vocational rehabilitation people. Hang in on working as long as you can. Just because you cannot do your old job there are other things you can do. They will help you retrain. That way you can keep paying taxes!😱

Anyway, in Pennsylvania it appears there are two programs for those not working. The specialized services program is for younger people and the independent living program is for people over 55. Both of them have the goals of increasing independence and self-sufficiency.

That is just about it. The day is going and I have other things to do. Cheerio.
