I had to do something. Take some kind of action.
All that morning I’d smelled it and it was driving me nuts.
Nasty. Filth. That’s what it smelled like.
What was it? My bathroom.
I didn’t have bathroom cleaner. Didn’t even have bleach or dish soap, but I had to do something.
Finally I could stand it no longer, so I got up and went rummaging round in my cabinets.
Then I found it. Dish-washer tabs.
“hmmm?” I thought as I stood with one in my hand. “ I could dissolve this in a bucket of hot water and make cleaning water.”
So, that’s what I did.
I scrubbed the tub, toilet and sink. I got down onto my knees and scrubbed up the floor. I picked up all the dirty clothes and put them into the washing machine, and as I dumped the nasty stinking water down the toilet and flushed it away I felt somehow better.
I’d gotten up and done something. I’d made one problem go away. It had been harder than spraying some fast-acting cleaner and wiping it away but I’d taken action and one issue in my day was gone.
Somehow I felt more in control than I had in a while. As I sat resting I wondered, “What else can I take care of today? What other problem do I have that I can with some action take care of?”
I told myself. “Self it really is that simple. If you try one at a time you can make your problems disappear.”
To do this day.
Think of one problem, no matter how small and see if you can think your way around it. Then take action to see it gets done. You’ll be amazed at how much better you feel.
More about me and what I do and why…
Welcome to my Media Kit King Campbell and I are pleased to present some wondrous stories and art work to you all. Enjoy.
Bubba Tails from the Puppy Nursery at The Seeing Eye Written by Patty L. Fletcher Told by, King Campbell Lee -The Seeing Eye Dog AKA Bubba
In this magical and love filled tail, King Campbell AKA Bubba travels to the puppy nursery at The Seeing Eye to help ready a group of puppies who are just
about to embark on the fabulous journey of learning to become Seeing Eye dogs. Just as he is about to finish his tail, a wee pup becomes very frightened
of all that lies ahead, and one frightfully stormy night she runs away! Will King Campbell hear the urgent call from the puppy nursery in time? Will they
find her and save her so she can fulfill her destiny?
The use of Tail instead of Tale for story and Magik instead of Magic is intended for these short stories. A great play on words from King Campbell
Patty Lyne Fletcher in her own words (October 2017
About me and my crew
I’m a single mother with a beautiful daughter, of whom I am very proud. I have a great son-in-law and five beautiful grandchildren. Three girls, and two
boys. I hope to be able to write more about them later on. I own and handle a Black Labrador from The Seeing Eye™ named Campbell Lee—a.k.a. Bubba Lee or
King Campbell, to give just a couple of his nicknames.
About my blindness
I was born one and a half months premature. My blindness was caused by my being given too much oxygen in the incubator. I was partially sighted until 1991,
at which time I lost my sight due to an infection after cataract surgery and high eye pressure. I used a cane for 31 years before making the change to
a guide dog.
Where I live and work
Currently, I live and work in Kingsport, Tenn. I used to work for CONTACT-CONCERN of Northeast Tennessee, Inc. I left that position in order to spend time
with family and pursue my writing full time.
Why I write.
I wrote Campbell’s Rambles: How a Seeing Eye Dog Retrieved My Life to tell the story of how going to The Seeing Eye™ and getting Campbell, learning to
love, handle, and work him, then coming home and adding him to my life, gave me true freedom. I tell of how changing from being a 31-year cane user to
being a guide dog handler taught me things about myself I had never known before. I tell of the wonderment I experienced when I finally took that chance.
A major goal of mine is to help others who find themselves in domestic violence situations. I also want to help others learn more about mental illnesses
and how different situations and environments can drastically affect those with such challenges. I tell how training affected me physically as a result
of the fibromyalgia I deal with, along with the side effects of the medications I take. I focus on bipolar disorder, on how it can go horribly wrong and
cause a person to behave in ways they normally would not.
Another thing I have attempted to show is how, in certain institutional settings, attachments can develop—and how those attachments can become unhealthy
for all concerned if they are not handled correctly. Most simply, I want others to know more about me.
In Bubba Tails From the Puppy Nursery At The Seeing Eye, it is King Campbell Super Seeing Eye Dog A.K.A Bubba’s turn to tell his tale.
While helping to ready a group of pups to go and meet their puppy raiser families, so they too, might one-day become Seeing Eye dogs, he tells of what
it was like for him, to grow up and become a Seeing Eye dog.
My hobbies include reading, writing, music, and standup comedy. I also like nature walks, light hiking, tent camping, and fishing. No, I am not afraid
to bait a hook.
Music I enjoy
My favorite types of music are classic rock, rhythm and blues, and classic country, as well as some present-day country music. I also like meditation music.
My favorite books and authors
I enjoy fantasy, science fiction, and books about the supernatural. I love the books by Stephen King, Dean Koontz, and many more. My favorite books include
Stephen King’s Dark Tower series, J.K. Rowling’s Harry Potter series, Robert Jordan’s Wheel of Time series, and J.R.R. Tolkien’s Lord of the Rings series.
My spiritual faith
I am a spiritual walker. I claim no particular faith, either Christian or pagan. I simply know that there is God and Goddess, or Mother Father God, as
some call her/him. I lean toward the natural approach, or Druidism (Druidry), as it promotes harmony and respect for all beings, including the environment.
I am also very interested in herbs and their healing properties.
Corner the Comfort Zone.
