Completion of Day 26 and Day 27 – Going home

In the afternoon Kyle and I went to go see the Morris Frank statue. I have never seen such a realistic statue before. Even the textures will remarkable. The harness felt like a harness. The leash even felt somewhat like it also. The face and the rest of the statue was very cool to touch. … Read more

Day 25 and a partial day 26 at the Seeing Eye

I got up on Tuesday at about 5:15 or so and really didn’t want to get up. The forecast predicted rain all day so I was pleasantly surprised when I found that while it was cool outside it wasn’t raining, yet! I met the guys down in the men’s lounge before breakfast and we chatted … Read more

Addendum to Day 23 and Day 24

Day 21 at the Seeing Eye

Karen woke me up at 5:00 or so. I could hear her XM radio or laptop playing music and she was quite chipper for 2:00AM Tucson time. I bet Joyce is really thinking she and Darrell are crazy with that sleep schedule ;). Today started with a yummy breakfast of scrambled eggs, toast, cinnamon bun … Read more

Days 17 and 18 at the Seeing Eye

Monday was solo day for the Elm Street route. I got up pretty early and got ready for the day. In the morning Barb and I went out on the first trip and it rained for most of the route. It went very very well. I told her what actions I would take at each … Read more

Day 16

Today turned out to be a pretty busy day at first. I got up to take Rory out to PARC. I took her down stairs to groom here. I did obedience. I then played with her for about 10 or so minutes. I then threw in a small load of laundry (actually two loads but … Read more

Day 15

Today is Saturday and I had to work it like a normal day due to being slightly behind in class. We got up at 5:30 (actually I was up at 5:05 and was dressed and ready to go by 5:20) to take our dogs out. Breakfast was at 7:00 and I was told that Barb … Read more
