Blind Like Me

Years ago I saw a blind man putting coins into a parking meter. I wondered if he would be waiting for a gumball to roll out after he twisted the knob. Last weekend I spotted a man with a white cane browsing in the high-definition TV aisle at Costco. My optometrist told me that I'm legally blind, and while I think that he's full of it, I have to admit that I couldn't care less about the picture quality on my television. As long as the vertical hold isn't all wacky, I'm satisfied.

At the entrance to the Leon's Furniture store on Danforth Avenue, there is a sign that reads "No dogs, except seeing-eye dogs, allowed on premises".
Huh?

I'm legally blind too (whatever that means). I can see, but now as good as the eye doctor, I suppose HA

I put a coin in a blind man's cup the other day...and he said, "thanks, baldy."

I hoped you laughed as hard as I'm laughing now.

I'm legally blind without my glasses ... but once I put them on, I can see :))

It's a miracle of modern medicine.
