Finding the nozzle with my cane

And this is exactly what I had to do when the nozzle to my kettle fell from my hand and rolled away from me. I had a general idea as to where it fell but after spending some time searching around on the floor my efforts proved fruitless and I had to call in additional help.

I rose unsteadily from the floor and sauntered over to where my cane was standing in the corner. I took the cane and returned to my kitchen floor and with measured, ginger-like steps, I began my seek and find process.

It did not take me very long to locate the nozzle. It was stuck between a wall and the side of the stove. I placed my cane at the far end between wall and stove and proceeded to come at the nozzle in the manner of someone batting a ball. It worked!
I managed to bat the nozzle from its spot and it rolled harmlessly out into the middle of the kitchen floor and there I grabbed it. All in a day's work.

This is a personal message from author Donna Jodhan

"Each time we raise our voice at someone else we are engaging in bullying! Each time we raise our hands to slap or punch someone else we are also engaging in bullying and each time we engage in actions to either manipulate or force someone else to do what we want we are also engaging in bullying!

There is no room in this world for bullying and each day we fail to take action against bullying it is another day that we allow others to bully us and our kids. Our heroes and role models are the ones who have made us proud; those brave young men and women who gave their lives for us in past wars and those who continue to do so. They are not the ones who choose to be racists and those who believe that their bad behaviour in public is acceptable.

I write and record audio mysteries that are being used at such events as murder mystery evenings as well as at public awareness and team building events. I promote understanding, tolerance, and problem solving and my audio mysteries continue to be broadcasted around the world and you can listen to them anywhere! On the plane or train! In the car or right there in your home! On your i device or computer!

Please join my campaign against bullying (CAB) by supporting my efforts to keep on writing and recording!
If you truly care then you will certainly dare!"
