From MD to Pokemon, Abby Is On The Move

Check Out These Fab Pics of #AbbyOnTheMove

Maryland Grocery Store with magnifierOur Abigail has been a busy lady indeed! The following photos were taken in Maryland, Nevada, California, Ontario and my personal favorite with Pokémon!

Susan Kennedy uses the smartphone app Visor in order to read a can label with magnification and contrast control at the grocery store. She’s wearing an Abigail Style comfy white tank which reads “Blind Chicks with Attitude” paired with a pink cotton sweater, gray shorts, and silver flats.

Images: 1) Use more than eyes at the grocery store, try sniffing a cantaloupe to see if it’s sweet/ripe or not. 2) Susan greets cashier with a smile as she navigates with her white cane and pulls a full grocery cart behind her thru the checkout lane.

 

Abigail was a welcome tag-along on my wedding and honeymoon to Las Vegas, Williams, Az, the Grand Canyon, and Sedona, AZ! ~Bree Orner

Pokemon

I thought this one was cute. The son of one of my friends captured two different images of Pokemon characters who appear to sit on top of the “My Friend is Bold Blind & Beautiful” Abigail Style mug.

    I’m in here somewhere, along with a few other lovely ladies. We are speaking up and spreading the word as best we can. Happy to be a part of this campaign. Thanks goes to the woman who thought of it in the first place. Thanks Steph.

    1. Hey Khaya, it’s so good hearing from you and thank you for the compliment. It gets a little hairy trying to manage my mother’s situation and everything else but I’m trying not to stress over it. You take your own photos correct? I thought I asked you once but can’t recall. They are fabulous!

      1. Good to take it easy, Steph. There’s point stressing. And yes, I’m a hobbyist photographer, I take my own photos to document memories. 🙂 Thank you for the compliment!

    1. I haven’t tried Visor but I’m so thankful for the technology that’s made it so much easier for people with sight loss to maintain their independence. Years before I had a smartphone I used a clunky video magnifier; it was cool but the phone’s screen is bigger and there’s much more flexibility than with the video mag.

      1. It’s great to have one gadget that does so many things! My husband gets lost easily and I get carsick, so we turn on the gps to find our way when we’re travelling. The bus time-table’s right there, too, as well as my music and audio-books.
