That was so rude of her! I've also seen where kids are threatened with arrest/ jail when there's a cop around. Traumatizing to the child and unfair to the person used as a threat!

Did you carry a cane Claire?

Even if you didn't, that was unkind of people.

No, I really don't need one any more (yes, I did). If I carried one now I think it would be to smack rude people! I'm trying to get back to normal, and I don't really need a cane any more. If I were to carry one (and, yes, I have one) it would just be for an outward sign for people to get the h#$% out of my way when I ask politely. Usually people in this town are very, very polite and occomodating. But this particular even draws in a lot of people from Chicago who seem to think those of us who live here should just get out of their way.

Claire, there are times when I don't need my cane, but I have learned to take it with me when I am out, specially if there is a lot of walking and/or crowds involved. Often I just have it hang on my wrist by the strap, but more often I actually walk with it just so a) I have my balance and b) so people know why I am walking slowly across the street, or am needing a seat on transit (which I find difficult to take in the first place).

I have come across rude people whether I have my cane with me or not. But the truth is, whether we have a disability or not and carry a cane or not, people have no business being rude like that. To quote the Princess, GRRR...

I don't know why by I can't seem to get going today. Can't even decide what to make for dinner. Been staring at the freezer for 3 hours lol! Wish I could somehow get myself to love chicken again. Maybe I'll give it another go, most of my best recipes contain chicken.

Yes! It's 29 C today and it's spring. Summer it goes up to about 35-38 C.

Lived in Botswana for 8 years, it goes above 50 C in summer there
