May we never forget and always honor our soldiers; past, present, and future. May they be blessed for all they have done and continue to do to keep us free.

Abuses of Handicapped Parking – Is This YOUR Car?

Posted on May 28, 2010. Filed under: Uncategorized | Tags: |

This is another installment in my series of abuses of handicapped facilities by non-handicapped persons.

On a trip to our local Wal-Mart, we encountered this vehicle, an SUV pulling a trailer, parked in the handicapped parking area in the marked off section between the actual handicapped parking spaces.

This made it impossible for a person using a wheelchair to disembark from a vehicle in the space next to the SUV (my original choice for a space). In fact, this action by the driver of the SUV effectively disabled four handicapped spaces from being of much use to a severely disabled person like my husband.

I don’t know what this driver was thinking. I saw no handicapped placard nor did the vehicle have a handicapped tag.

As I was snapping these photos with my cell phone a passer-by asked me what I was doing and I told her I was going to write about this and put the pictures on my blog. I didn’t turn the driver in to the authorities, but I did want to use this as an example of what not to do.

The yellow marked off areas between handicapped spaces are for people like my husband who need room to maneuver in a wheelchair.

Please be thoughtful and don’t make life any more difficult on the handicapped and their caregivers than it has to be.

On Top Of Everything Else…

Posted on May 22, 2010. Filed under: Uncatagorized | Tags: |

Granny has had two weeks of computer hell. Now, for a person completely addicted to computers and to one certain computer for blogging, this was not good. It was said blogging computer that decided to bid me farewell.

In the period of making the decision to purchase a new blogging computer and getting it ordered and delivered, the oil spill turned from disaster into mega disaster, Arizona managed to do the right thing and piss off the Obama regime and Mexico (you go Arizona), the apology tour continued with China (of all countries) being told how sorry we are that our bad-boy state, Arizona, decided to pass a law that over 60% of American’s approve of, and the list goes on.

It’s probably just as well that I couldn’t chime in. I would have probably said things that would have caused an influx of black SUV’s into my neighborhood.

My new blogging computer arrived yesterday. I’m in the process of figuring it out. It’s a laptop, so I can blog while in front of the television watching Fox News with my hubby.

Hubby sometimes has some very insightful comments on what’s taking place in our nation. I assure you I will steal them and put them in these pages (without permission or giving him credit) whenever possible.
