WON’T TELL DEAF DAUGHTER SHE HAS A DEAF COUSIN
    Many years ago DeafDigest editor, as a young
man, was at a deaf party. He was chatting with
a young deaf woman, and asked her about her
deaf cousin.
    The deaf woman was shocked, not aware she had
a deaf cousin.
    She was angry about it and confronted her mother,
asking her why no one told her about a deaf cousin.
    The mother was vague and would not explain.
Why? Good question!

EARING PEOPLE HATE TO SIT NEXT TO DEAF PEOPLE AT DINNER
    Many hearing people hate to six next to deaf people
at dining table. Why?
    Because deaf people make noise while chewing on their
food.
    Why deaf people know nothing about it? Because hearing
people are polite and don’t want to insult the deaf!

Rene Pellerin’s Corner:
I posted an request for volunteer to be an SSP for me while I was in
Atlantic City, NJ.
I was pleased to find one who was willing to help out during my stay.
I was surprised to find out she lives 2 hours away to where I was staying!
We had an enjoyable afternoon exploring the boardwalk and casinos!
I got a chance to play a few slot machines, won some and lost some!
Rene’s show business started in year 2010 and it focuses on the
Deaf-Blind.
