Using A White Cane To Get A Date


               I  was at  the arkansas  Enterprises  for the  Blind in  the
          sixties. We were taught to use a cane, a long cane.
          One day, as  I was approaching a corner, my cane got there before
          I did. So did a young lady with an armful of packages.
          She got tangled up with my cane and packages went everywhere. She
          looked up at me, and said, "oh, please excuse me!"
          I helped her pick up the packages, after I helped her up.
          And we dated for six months.
