Dashing through the snow, and I'm racing toward the bus, my grocery bag just split ... and my bread has hit the slush...This is how I go, when I cannot drive but stroll, through the streets I go, with a white cane ho, ho, ho....

Ah a familiar song with new lyrics and a sad reality.When you are legally blind you cannot drive and use the city bus to travel the town. A few items and those plastic grocery bags, split, burst and get really heavy. What can you do? How about shopping, reading labels and just helping a neighbor to carry their groceries. It's easy.
