Sorry, all. Sometimes, my sarcasm must come out, and stupid questions like that make it happen.

How about the person who tapped me on the shoulder while I was sitting on a train and said "Do you know you are on a train?" to which I said "yes" saying it really slowly and grinning. I then added "are you kidding?" and the person walked away without answering. I sometimes think folks talk to us and say strange things because they have noone else to talk to and know we won't hit them or stab them or anything. On the other hand, what kind of lives to they have to say things like that? I have also had people ask me "Do you know where you are going?" to which I reply "Oh yes? Do you?"

I know perhaps I ought to be more civil in some of my replies but if you walk up to me, say, on a train where I am clearly sitting down and reading (for bookshare or something) on my braillenote and say strange things I just cann't help myself and I say weird things. The stranger my day has been the weirder the things I say are.

Well, smile Cindy, this was in the middle of Walmart, with Judson and
Walker, my friend's dog in complete harness and being held by us on leashes,
and definitely moving.

That is why it was so um strange.

Shelley,

I l aughed out loud at that question, and the
next--although sometimes, if a dog is sitting still
(and not connected to you,  smile) it's hard to tell.
In front of a house we drive past frequently, a medium
size dog sits on a step very quietly and still, not
even moving its head. It sort of looked like the
Victrola dog, only smaller. We didn't know if it was
real or not until one day when it finally did turn its
head.
