WRONG SPY
    This is a true story. During World War I years, a deaf
person wanted to use the telephone to communicate with
a hearing person.
    He tapped on the telephone receiver with a pencil.
The hearing person would listen to the number of taps
to know what he is saying in a coded language.
    The federal agents thought the deaf person was a
World War I spy and they arrested him. They realized
it was just a telephone communication between the
deaf and the hearing, and they let him go free.

A DIFFERENT JOB FOR A DEAF MAN
    A deaf man in Canada has a different type of
job.
    His job is to knock on doors of homes.
When hearing people open the doors, he gives
them papers to sign and to collect fees.
    This is for people’s dog tag licenses!
He had a card with them that he shows to
hearing people to explain what it is.
    In USA, most people pay for dog licenses
in vet’s offices, but it is different in
Canada.

I also teach Touch Signals (Haptics) to interpreters,
SSPs and DeafBlind folks.
It has been a challenge and rewarding at the same time.
I appreciate traveling all over USA and Canada spreading
awareness about DeafBlind people.
Thank you for having me and I look forward to continuing!
Rene’s show business started in year 2010 and it focuses on the
Deaf-Blind.
