The energy was very high and welcoming…

except for the guy who gave me a handshake that almost crushed my fingers!

The group was from “The Industries” (as we call it sometimes)


they invited me back to their facilities for a tour.

My speech was about “opportunities” and

my plans was to give the speech then

go to a music shop and play on their saxophones, grab some lunch and hit the road.

But seeing an opportunity to meet some new people, I said “sure”, of course.

This is what happened afterwards….

Watch “The Truth About The Industries For The Blind” now
