Ric is back working at Pauley Construction and has been since our return to Arizona. This past weekend he and some guys from work helped provide and setup barricades for a marathon which was held in Apache Junction.
As of today (1/22/02), I am a "Tele-Relay Operator" for MCI. What I will be doing is as follows:
A deaf or speech impaired individual uses a machine to type their conversations and that will come to me. I will then speak what they have communicated to the person they are calling. At that time, when that person responds, I will type what they are saying to the impaired person. (does that make sense!?) I start my training this coming Friday. It sounds like really interesting work and it will feel good to know that I am helping people communicate who otherwise would have an extremely difficult time. Will keep you posted as to how this goes!!
