Can’t believe no one else heard Jill being very honest - and giggling
despite the seriousness of her tale. She has been diagnosed with the ‘dry’
form of ageing macular disease and has her script in large print format
which means she needs cues called differently because her script cones to
many more pages. The same is true of Jazzer - but he was not mentioned.

Sincerely Chris

Is Jazzer's best friend wholly or partially blind? And does he get his
scripts in Braille?

He’s registered blind and a braillist. Not sure if he’s totally blind
though. It’s a few years since I met him.

I did hear the item, Chris. I was in the car at the time, driving
through London to visit #2 daughter. She was very positive about the
downside of ageing and the disabilities that come with it.

Do you mean she was was very sure there WAS a downside and disabilities,
or that she is "keeping her pecker up" (1) despite the downside and
disabilities? Or both.

(1) Thought I'd just toss (2) that in for the benefit of Brritters,
(2) And that.

Are you suggesting that Britters is the ‘Cock of the North’?

She has a disability, probably related to age. She mentioned that
ageing does cause some problems as systems deteriorate. She managed to
feel positive about life and the things left and was giving a message
of hope.
