Turkey Run State Park, Indiana

After spending the day at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway (being so close, I just had to!), I drove over to Turkey Run State Park to meet blogger Jana. A quiet place to chat was what we both needed.

Being a woman about to embark on married life, I found myself offering Jana some advice. Jana is also serious considering fostering children with special needs. Because my parents were such a positive impact on my childhood, growing up with cerebral palsy, I also found myself offering advice to parents with special needs kids. Please help yourself to a cool beverage and join us for our chat under a shady tree.

With time travel involved, I’m heading back to Australia tomorrow! Until then, 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”). I have secured fourth place! My next goal is #3 by Labour Day. With your support, I know I can do it. Thanks!

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

Hi Glenda,
Nice to meet you! I came here via Jana’s blog and read about your book. I just posted on my blog the difficulties in communication for ALS. Good luck on your tour!

Glenda – I discovered your blog though my sweet friend Jana. You are such a blessing and encouragement to me! Our youngest daughter, Annie, has mild CP on her left side. She was adopted from China at the age of 2 1/2 and is now almost 5. She has made amazing progress, but is still very delayed in her speech development. Your story has given me such hope! thank you for bein you! I’ll go vote for you right now! Nina

Hi Glenda,

So what kind of lap times were you running at the Speedway in that Ferrari? In the scooter?
