From Queensland, Australia, I flew overnight to Dulles International Airport in the suburbs of Washington DC to meet with Susan Reynolds, a new media consultant.

Initially, like any good hostess unsure how to be around someone in a wheelchair, she fussed over me until I could share with the first etiquette tip when communicating with someone with a disability:

Relax. Don’t be afraid to ask questions when you’re unsure of what to do.

Once reassured and comfortable in her living room, we had pleasant chat about how interacting online gives us the freedom to choose what and how much we reveal about ourselves, which can be quite liberating. Please join us. Thanks Susan for a great day!

I now pull out my US road map, jump in my Ferrari and leisurely make my way to Bolingbrook, Illinois, for Monday. Until we meet again, please vote daily so I may win the opportunity to be paid to blog for a year (be sure to click on “Vote for Glenda Watson Hyatt”). Only 65 votes needed to take fourth place. Together, we can definitely achieve that today. Thanks kindly!

Have a great weekend!

If you enjoyed this post, consider buying me a chai tea latte. Thanks kindly.

Hey Glenda,

Your Canadian heritage is showing, since students of American history know that Jefferson penned the Declaration in Philadelphia, but only after curing writer’s block with a cure of a visit from his Virginian girlfriend!

Mike,

Thanks for that clarification. Apparently, this bronze statue of Jefferson is in Virginia. Does that count? ;)
