[tabi] Re: pedestrian/auto accident report yesterday

Hi, you all need to read my message before this one. Where I explained
myself. I not living in a bubble and I walk all the time with my guide dog.
I just am very careful where I walk and if I walk out on the streets
Especially in Tallahassee, Florida I do it with a seeing person now. I walk
in the malls and stores and rather do that. It is cooler in the summer and
warmer in the winter and don't have to worry about getting ran over and
dyeing or mangle up at 50 something. I have food close by and drinks and a
cool, dry, warm place to do it in. I myself plan on living a good healthy
life to in my nineties. Beside I don't live in Tallahassee I live in Gadsden
county on 9 acres of land. I just work in Tallahassee and visit it. This
work part is getting shorter and shorter. Now this is my thoughts and what I
want to do this is not for everyone but this is my decision.
