February Disability Blog Carnival - Coming Soon

I'm in love with another man!

Joe may be shocked to read that, but I need to confess and I confess for a reason. I am hosting the February Disability Blog Carnival and have searched around for the theme. Clearly February has been declared by the greeting card companies as the month that we declare our love for each other but then, I've done that before here on Rolling Around In My Head. So, I've decided to stick with LOVE ... but here's the thing. I'd like the Blog Carnival to focus on the love we have for the things that make the world accessible for us.

Like the Blue Wheelchair Guy ... the little hottie all sexy in his chair ... or like ... your hot pink hearing aids or your flashing yellow crutch or you princess pink wheelchair. Or even something like my plain old black hospital style wheelchair. Sometimes I smile when I wake up and see my chair waiting patiently beside the bed to welcome me into my day and into my world. I feel, in those moments, real affection for the thing. More than that when I'm in it it becomes part of me, a real amazing part of me.

So, that's the challenge. Send me blog posts to daveandjoe@hotmail.com with 'Blog Carnival' in the re line. Or post the link here in the comments section. I'd like to have these in by February 10. Thanks!

Today's post follows ...

Tricky one for me. I hope it still counts.

Thing as in inanimate object? Just checking.

Hmmm Nan, you've got me wondering ... but no it doesn't mean inanimate ... a service dog for example would be the perfect inspiration to a love letter!

Got it!

P.S. Really pleased to see you've disabled the security captcha here. They're a blind pc user's worst nightmare.
