[nfbwatlk] wheelchairs at Seatac and a cane incident

They bring a wheelchair because frankly I need one. Since I smashed my foot
walking is not practical for me even if I have a guide dog happily marching
alongside of the chair, or held by my husband. I had more than one helper
who did not make room for the dog, growl, I remind them.  Or they make quick
turns without telling the dog, growl.

A folding cane never gets taken away from you. You stow the cane in the
pocket in front of you, smile. Simple solution, true.

I had a similar issue a couple years ago when I was flying from somewhere,
now I can't remember where.  I was furious, and vowed it would never happen
again.  I do have a question, though.  You know, those small airplanes the
commuter ones? Where do you put 
your cane on those?    Peace,    Debby P.S.  It isn't easy 
getting a dog down and settled on those smaller planes, either.  
Wow, and to think I used to like to fly.
