Old Woman in a Car Chases Cathy

Cathy was rollerblading last October with me in our gated community. An older woman chased us with her car. She threatened us because she said dogs were not allowed in the mobile home park. Cathy showed her my guide dog license. She refused to listen to Cathy, and she almost hit Cathy with her car. Cathy yelled that she would call the police. Cathy skated to the guard shack with me. The old lady followed us.

When we stopped at the booth, the old lady kept interrupting while Cathy tried to talk to the guard. Cathy yelled at the old lady, “get out” several times before the old lady finally went away. Cathy got her license plate number. When we got home, Cathy called the police.

Soon two men dressed in blue, with guns arrived. They said they would send another officer who knew sign language, but he was not working then.

Later, two other policemen showed up. They knew sign language. They were angry about the woman chasing Cathy with her car and not respecting Cathy’s right to have her guide dog with her. They said they would visit the woman and the mobile home park manager to explain about the rights of deaf people to have guide dogs.

  1. How often do you yourself Rollerblade or do you just write about it?

    Can I ask though – how did you get this picked up and into google news?

    Very impressive that this blog is syndicated through Google and is it something that is just up to Google or you actively created?

    Obviously this is a popular blog with great data so well done on your seo success..

    Rollerblading greats you should write about next.

  2. Cool,
    We didn’t know this was syndicated by Google News. Nor did we do anything to ask Google to publish it. Probably their robots found it, through various other links, like through my more famous website, “RunningBarefoot.org” which links to my personal website, “BarefootKenBob.com” which links here.

    I used to rollerskate quite a bit, before in-line skates (Rollerblades) were popular. Then I took up in-line skating, since I preferred being outside, instead of inside a stuffy skating rink, listening to horrible disco music (that was in the 1980s).

    Neither of us has been rollerblading much recently (Cathy broke her ankle falling downstairs, last April, and my skates broke earlier this year, and I haven’t replaced them yet).

    Mostly, when I do skate now, it’s so my dog can get a good run in. I do run long distance, but our new dog, Herman, prefers sprinting. I can keep up with, and turn as quickly as Herman, on skates. (How he got on skates, I’ll never understand)…

    Have fun,
