719 – People

I see very few people whilst out on my morning walk. I talk to even fewer of them. This morning was a very nice example of encounters that I have whilst out walking. A lady taking her dog for a walk and the dog hasn’t so much taken a fancy to me as needing some expectation management (can a dog warrant expectation management?) so this dog runs up to me and drops his tennis ball which squeaks.

There is no way I am picking this ball up, so I kick it. The dog loves it. Runs for the ball, drops it at my feet again. This has been part of my routine now since the beginning of the week. Yesterday, I kicked the ball and it went in to this dirty old creek, “Oh Dear” I thought. The dog didn’t hesitate, straight in. Came out a real mess. I felt dreadful. She was laughing.

I love it when people stop me and ask me what I’m doing. That happened this morning, this chap took one look at me and said “Can I ask what you are doing” Of course what does it is my “gadget stick” the tripod with the phone mount and the anemometer, and me with my headphones, and a bag with an antenna sticking out. To be honest, I must be quite a sight. I do wonder how many people think “Oh my, do we have a nutter here?”

When I explain what am doing, I usually get a very positive response. Which is nice. We spent a very pleasant couple of minutes chatting and then went on with out walks. Things like that, really do make for a nice morning walk.

I just want to write, but I prefer to stay away from controversial topics like politics. I am happy to confess that at the moment, I am writing for me. If you enjoy my writings, and I hope you do then that is all the better.
