Driving Miss Donna: “Once Upon a Time” by Lynn Anderson.
Tips and tidbits from the Food Lady: Salad recipes!
Uplift, inspirational: PRAYER – JUST DO IT! By Ruth Coleman.
From the editor:
Snow after Mother’s Day. Wow! That is what I found this morning when I took my dog outside. That’s Springtime in southwest Idaho this year. Raining all day today too. I do enjoy the sound of the rain and it is a nice backdrop to my writing. I am learning to expect the unexpected these days. At least weatherwise.
This month’s news is a bit slimmer than usual. Donna Williams was not able to contribute an article for Living with low vision due to illness. Pray for a speedy recovery. We have some new announcements and notices this month. Driving Miss Donna is full of fun and fantasy, and Food Lady has a few salad recipes. Ruth has another great uplifting article too.
I want to invite you to write articles for the Blind Post.
They can be anything about yourself, how you do a particular thing like traveling with your cane, guide dog or limited vision. Anything you think other readers would enjoy. You have a favorite app you use and would like to share. There is no cost for submitting stories or poems to the news.
Note that in July there will not be an issue of the Blind Post.
I take July off each year. If you have any notices that would pertain to the month of August, you will want to send them to me for the June issue.
For those that might be wondering where Joshua Loya, my son is,
that wrote the column Blind man walking. He is no longer writing for the news due to his very full life of training for his next surf contest that will be held in Hawaii in June. He also teaches along with his wife Martial arts, and he has several other business pursuits.
Do you like a good mystery?
I just read a fun mystery that was quite entertaining. I got it from BARD, and it is probably on cartridge from your local Talking Book library.
McCourtney, Lorena. Reading time: 8 hours, 20 minutes.

Mystery and Detective Stories
She's not your average crime fighter! Meet Ivy Malone, an inconspicuous older woman who has a mutant curiosity gene that often lands her in trouble. Unlike most women her age, she snoops and pries her gray-haired self into one hilarious escapade after another. So, when vandals romp through the local cemetery, Ivy can't help but put her snooping eyes to work as she launches her own unofficial investigation. Despite her unconventional sleuthing, Ivy soon becomes discouraged by her failure to turn up any solid clues. And after Ivy witnesses something ominous and unexplained, she can't resist putting her investigative powers to work again. Even the authorities' attempts to keep her out of danger and her nosy neighbor's match-making schemes can't slow Ivy down. But will the determination that fuels this persistent, spunky sleuth threaten her very safety? Adult. Unrated.
I just love getting books from the NLS talking book library. Did you know you can get music books too?
There is quite a selection of audio books on learning how to play various instruments and even on singing. There are many selections of braille music.
You can download them from the BARD website or call your talking book library and ask them how you can get the music books. On the main BARD website there is a link that will take you to all the music selections. It is just before the magazines link.
Where else can you download and read books that are out of print?
So many interesting old books.
There is another place where you can get audio books that are older and out of print.
I love this free service. You can get a variety of selections from many genres.
LibriVox | free public domain audiobooks
LibriVox audiobooks are free for anyone to listen to, on their computers, iPods or other mobile device, or to burn onto a CD.
I use the app by the same name on my iPhone. I just love a good book!
Feel free to write me if you have any questions, ideas, or just want to say hi.
I am not always quick to respond, but I will get back to you as soon as possible. I do love hearing from Blind Post readers.

Driving Miss Donna
“Once Upon a Time”
by: Lynn Anderson
Once upon a time in the tiny kingdom of Santa Cruz County, California, lived two princesses; Donna the lover of all things Apple, princess of the ocean area in Capitola; Bevie the lover of all things of fashion, princess of the mountain area in Scotts Valley; and their friend and driver, Lynn the frazzled. (Can you see what direction this is all headed?) Although princess Donna has severely limited vision and mobility and princess Bevie is completely non-sighted, yet both princesses have super powers! Yes, it is completely true! Princess Donna and princess Bevie both have the power to disappear at a moment’s notice, without warning, and without reason. I’m am told that they both like to disappear because it is fun. How is this fun? I have to ask, but then I digress! Princess Donna also has the ability to make any device with the Apple logo work, even when no other adult can make this happen (not counting teenagers), and princess Bevie has the ability to make racks upon racks of clothing fit into her closet, even when her closet was stuffed full many moons ago! But again, both princesses possess many super powers. Now their companion, Lynn the frazzled, has none of these or any other super powers, except she does possess the super power to look puzzled. That’s about it! But on to our story!
One day, princess Donna and princess Bevie decided they would like to go on an outing. They contacted their friend, Lynn the frazzled, and asked her if she would be interested in going out to dinner and a movie? Lynn the frazzled thought about their request and thinking that it might be a fun thing to do, agreed to take our two princess out for the afternoon. What was she thinking? Arrangements were made, times were set and plans were in motion. Isn’t a good plan just the best? The answer to that question is YES! So Lynn the frazzled hopped in her chariot and drove to princess Donna’s castle to pick her up for the outing. She waited and waited and waited, and no princess Donna! So Lynn the frazzled picked up her phone to call princess Donna. No answer! This isn’t good, she thought. She tried calling again, still no answer! So she abandoned her chariot in a not great area to search for princess Donna. Just as she was climbing the stairs to princess Donna’s castle, princess Donna was making her way slowly to Lynn the frazzled’s chariot. “There you are!” Lynn the frazzled stated, “I was getting worried!” Princess Donna made her way to the chariot, climbed in and closed the door. “Why were you worried?” Princess Donna asked, puzzled. “Well, you are about 15 minutes late for one thing. Why are you so late? Plus you didn’t answer your phone!” “Oh that,” princess Donna said, “I forgot to charge my phone, so I didn’t hear it ring.” “You never forget to charge your phone,” Lynn the frazzled said, totally forgetting that princess Donna was 15 minutes late. “Oh, maybe it’s charged then,” Princess Donna answered. As you may have guessed, that’s when I used my super power, which is to look puzzled. At that moment another chariot pulled up and honked their horn because I was blocking their path. “OK, OK,” I said as I drove out of the castle parking area on my way to the mountain kingdom of Scotts Valley. OK, we were on our way now, and nothing would slow us down!
As I pulled my chariot up to princess Bevie’s castle, I noticed that there was no princess Bevie in sight, and we waited and waited and waited. Finally I asked princess Donna to call princess Bevie on her previously uncharged now miraculously charged iPhone to see what was wrong? Princess Donna called, to find out that princess Bevie was running around in circles and crying. “Why is she crying?” I asked, again using my super power. “She can’t find anything to wear,” princess Donna stated as though the answer should be more than obvious. “She has at least 500 outfits and she can’t find anything to wear?” Once again, my super power came out. “Well, anything appropriate to wear.” “How appropriate do you need to be for dinner and a movie?” I think that my super power was now permanently etched on my face at this point. Princess Donna sighed, got out of the car, and we both made our way to princess Bevie’s castle. Sure enough, princess Bevie’s suite in her castle was covered with heaps of clothing piled on her bed. This looks bad, I thought. As time was quickly slipping away and the hopes of dinner and a movie both were vanishing and my perfect plan was failing, I turned to look at princess Donna. “No dinner and a movie?” I asked sadly.
Finally, princess Bevie found the perfect outfit to wear, was quickly dressed, and we were on our way! Maybe this could all work out after all! Until, that is, my chariot ran over an object in the road and a loud blow-out sounded from the back of my chariot! Oh no! I pulled my chariot into the royal gas station, quickly parked and then saw that my right, rear chariot tire was completely flat, not even slightly inflated. This is not good! My super power came out in full force. What had happened? I got back into the chariot to let the princesses know about the flat tire, but princess Donna was already on the phone calling chariot repair service, AAA. Since it was a Friday night, I wasn’t hopeful for a quick turn around, but with princess Donna and princess Bevie along for the ride, it just might work out. “It may be a few hours,” I stated sadly, but princess Donna was not deterred. “No worries, I called chariot Grub Hub and our meal should be here soon.” “OK, sounds good, I hope.” I was becoming more frazzled by the moment, but princess Donna and princess Bevie seemed quite excited. I turned around in my seat to say something to princess Bevie, but she was no longer in the back seat. “Where is princess Bevie,” I asked, my anxiety level becoming even greater. “Oh, she had to go to the bathroom, she should be back soon,” princess Donna stated as though it were no big thing. “How did she get to the bathroom?” I asked, very close to panic. “Oh, I think a prince came along and helped out.” “Which prince?” I asked, getting out of the chariot to go and find princess Bevie. “Oh, I don’t know, but he was cute,” princess Donna stated. “He was cute? That’s all you care about? He could be an ax murderer, but at least he’s cute!” Was I sounding hysterical? “You worry about way too much,” princess Donna stated. “Oh look, there’s chariot Grub Hub, our meal has arrived!” Princess Donna was very excited about our meal, but not that worried about princess Bevie! At that very moment, princess Bevie returned on the arm of a very handsome prince indeed, who helped her into the back seat of my chariot. “My lady,” he stated, bowed, kissed princess Bevie’s hand, and then left. As I sat in my chariot seat, hiding my face with my hands, I heard the chariot door open, our meal delivered and chariot Grub Hub driving away. I looked at princess Donna and princess Bevie and just sighed. “What’s for dinner?” I asked, not sure I really cared anymore. “And where did the table cloths, linen napkins, real silverware, china and goblets come from?” “Oh, chariot Grub Hub is very thorough,” princess Donna said and proceeded to serve us lasagna with meat sauce, salad and freshly baked garlic bread. I laughed. “What’s so funny,” princess Bevie asked. “I don’t know, I thought maybe we’d be having rack of lamb or something like that.” “That takes too long to cook,” princess Donna said, “we’d miss our movie!” I ate my lasagna dinner, and we all finished just as chariot repair service, AAA showed up to change our chariot tire.
We were finally on our way to the movie theater, where I parked my chariot and we got in line to see our favorite movie, “Princess Bride.” What else would we see? We purchased our tickets, popcorn, picked up the princess audio descriptive headphones for princess Donna and princess Bevie, found our seats and settled in for the movie. The opening of the movie played, and it was the last thing I remembered, as I fell fast asleep! At some point, I remember princess Donna trying to wake me up, but it was all to no avail, I was out! When the movie was over, princess Donna, princess Bevie and I went out for late night ice cream at the royal ice cream shoppe, then I drove both princesses home in my trusty chariot. And they all lived happily ever after, well, except maybe Lynn the frazzled who is still trying to figure things out!
This story is in honor of Bevie’s sister, Marlene, who sadly passed away a few weeks ago. Marlene had suffered with Alzheimer’s disease for several years, and as her memory slowly faded away, her family would try to help her remember family history by telling her stories. In order to make it a fun thing for Marlene and not to cause her stress, the family would always start the story with “Once Upon a Time”, and each member of the family would add to the story, making it more and more outrageous as they went along. This helped Marlene to feel like she could add to the story, and not be a reminder to her that she could no longer remember much of her family history. I thought that this was such a blessed idea and wanted to incorporate it into my silly story! God bless you, and missing you Marlene!

PRAYER – JUST DO IT!
Ephesians 6:18 KJV:
“Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints.”
Recently a young man was quoted, concerning his lack or indifference to a real Prayer Life. It was said that he saw no reason to make long supplications and railings to GOD, for anything; because after all, if you know GOD, and He knows you He already knows what you need, and all that begging and crying doesn’t move GOD, not one bit.
It is most positive that you have heard this reckless intimidating statement at one time or another in your life time, right? Did you know how to handle the situation? Most of us, if and when this happened were not equipped to even mutter at this poor application of untruth. This very short article may not answer the question adequately; but here are a few nuggets that might help along the path of bringing some to an understanding of Prayer.
Hezekiah was morbidly sick,however, he did not keep quiet about it, he turned his face to the wall, Prayed and GOD’S Prophet, Isaiah was told by GOD to deliver the following message to him: 2 Kings 20:5
Turn again, and tell Hezekiah the captain of my people, Thus saith the LORD, the God of David thy father, I have heard thy prayer, I have seen thy tears: behold, I will heal thee: on the third day thou shalt go up unto the house of the LORD.
What if Hezekiah had kept quiet, as many like the young man had suggested? GOD told Isaiah that He heard (audible) and saw(visual), so GOD has allowed us to know that He hears and He sees our sincere Prayers; but that is not all, because He did not only hear and see, but He healed King Hezekiah, and gave him fifteen additional years of life.
Psalm 4: 1; (KJV)
“Hear me when I call, O God of my righteousness: thou hast enlarged me when I was in distress;
have mercy upon me, and hear my prayer.”
Mommy, I want this, I want that, I want those, can I get that, Mommy, can I? Does this sound familiar, in the grocery store a toddler is way above a whisper, reaching for things and petitioning his mother, who looks as if this was not her child; and then the child gets quiet and some sort of recollection moves over him, and the toddler begins a new manner of requesting. “Mommy, can I please have lion and monkey cookies, please Mommy? The next thing you see is a quiet, satisfied child clutching a box of Animal Cookies. He had the key all of the time; but he stubbornly rebelled against the manner or acceptable course by which his desire would be fulfilled. All of his noise brought him nothing; but when he used the path which he was given, his hoped for and desired object became a prized reality. Readers, let us remember the young man in the beginning of this article. He doesn’t believe in the sensitive reality that Prayer can be audible and verbal and he doesn’t believe that GOD is interested in or hears noisy prayers. There is a difference between noisy and speaking loudly with purpose. (Remember 2Timothy 2:16;- KJV “But shun profane and vain babblings: for they will increase unto more ungodliness. · And their word will eat as doth a canker: of whom is Hymenaeus and Philetus;.”)
If the toddler had not changed his form of communication, he would not have gotten his desire, which was, in his opinion, an extremely important object – cookies.
DID JESUS PRAY?
Luke 11:1, 2; (KJV(
“And it came to pass, that, as he was praying in a certain place, when he ceased, one of his disciples said unto him, Lord, teach us to pray, as John also taught his disciples.  And he said unto them, When ye pray, say, Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name.”
TO WHOM DID JESUS PRAY?
“These words spake Jesus,
John 17:1; (KJV) …and lifted up his eyes to heaven, and said, Father, the hour is come; glorify thy Son, that thy Son also may glorify thee:.”
FOR WHOM DID JESUS PRAY?
John 17:10; (KJV)
“I pray for them: I pray not for the world, but for them which thou hast given me; for they are thine. And all mine are thine, and thine are mine ...”
WHEN DID JESUS PRAY?
Three prayers on the cross: "Father forgive them; for they know not what they do" (Luke 23:34)
"My God, My God, why hast thou forsaken me?" (Matt 27:46, Mark 15:34)
Luke 23:46 KJV: “And when Jesus had cried with a loud voice, he said, Father, into thy hands I commend my spirit: and having said thus, he gave up the ghost.”
The last Words Jesus spoke were with a loud voice, and it was a Prayer to His Father. These Words were not invalid , or without understanding; but they were loudly spoken to His Father, they were a Prayer, a loud Prayer. I can only try to imagine the Power of that moment, when the LORD of Glory was released from the confines of this Earth and moved back into Heavenly Places.
DID JESUS Pray? Yes, Jesus Prayed, and is still praying for all saints. He now sits at the Right Hand of GOD the Father Almighty ever making intercession for the saints. Yes! Jesus Prayed, and we all must cultivate the same in our personal lives. It should be very difficult to hear news and turn aside from it as if it was not heard. Church, Readers, Blind Post Readers, please do not be offended. We do not ask for gold or silver; but time, which is precious dedicated to His Glory, enough to ask GOD to help those who are suffering. “Cast your bread upon the waters, for after many days you will find it again. Give portions to seven, yes to eight, for you do not know what disaster may come upon the land. If clouds are full of water, they pour rain upon the earth.”
IN CHRIST I REMAIN … Ruth.
