> Good evening everyone! I'm trying to make this message cover several things.  First of all, I wanted to say congratulations to Don Mitchell.  That was a great article, and couldn't have happened to a nicer person.  Great going, Mitch!

I'm trying to get our call in before I go to Seeing Eye so we could at least have one convousation before I head out.  Marci has said that we can use the conference call number.  I am thinking of Sunday April 19, or Wednesday the 22nd.  If you could let me know which of those nights would be good, I'd appreciate it.  I'd like to have the call start at either 7 or 7:30, so if you would give me that preference, I'd appreciate that, too.  You can also call me at 509-690-4624.
> My third thing is that I was hired yesterday by a small local business called Strategic Contact Solutions Inc.  We do outbound calls for businesses.  We do things like set appointments, etc.  I've only listened in for a little while yesterday.  They have another blind employee, who also has a dog guide.  This will mean that the day after I get back from Seeing Eye, I'll go in and get adjusted to the work site, etc.  My boss is very understanding, he understood that I already had a class date to The Seeing Eye, and when I told him that I also already had a ticket for the flight to Orlando for the NFB convention and had pre-registered, he said, "Well, I guess you'll be going to the NFB convention then." I apologized, and he said, "It's okay, knowing early means we can plan.  July 3 will be a day off, so that will give me time to pack, etc.  I also told him about the NFB convention in the fall, but told him that I did not have any information yet about date or location.  He said that was fine, to just let him know when I did.  Wow! But I do think I will need to resign from the SRC.  It would not be good form to tell him that every quarter I have to take Friday off.  Lol.  The PAC meetings are usually on Saturday and generally are over the phone meetings, anyway.  So I think I'll be okay as far as that goes.
> I'm also in the process of getting new eyes, as my prosthetic ones are 20 years old, and one of them is not fitting well anymore.  They should be done by Thursday.  Exhausting! Lol.
> Well, I'd best get going.    Peace,    Debby
