Veerry interesting walk

Recommended Posts

Yesterday evening I was running errands downtown and took the hounds.  Don't tell anyone, but the lady who owns the butcher shop lets the dogs in the store with me.  She's known us for years from the farmer's market and has always complimented them on their good behavior.  And in the store, everything's behind glass or metal.  There's a pedestrian alley lined with shops that I haven't been down in a long time so decided to check out.  Right on the corner -- a storefront for a local animal rescue.  With cats roaming inside.  The door is always locked because of the cats, but the volunteers came out to pet the dogs.  Jeter was eating it up, but Milo could not be distracted from staring through the glass door and thinking about eating something else.  (Sorry, kitties.)   A few doors down was an engineering office with a resident pit bull who objected to our presence from one glass door down along the whole plate glass window to the 2nd glass door.  Milo and the pitbull exchanged a few opinions about each other's manliness and mothers.  Jeter tried to ignore the whole situation. 

There were trash cans and benches to check out, and then coming down the other side there was a reptile pet store.  Both dogs stood stock still in front of that glass door, shoulder to shoulder, with their heads synchronized in that tilting with the ears up (well, as far up as Milo the lurcher can get them) back and forth.  I saw a guy inside laughing, but didn't see what fascinated the dogs till I got right behind them.  A ginormous tortoise -- maybe 50-60 lbs --  crawling down an aisle.  

Plusalso a female-owned tattoo parlor named "Pretty in Ink."  "Amateurs," sneered Jeter.  "Let's see you get tats on both ears."

All in all, a veerry interesting walk.

It's so much more fun when the ill-mannered and ill-mothered--or edible--distractions are behind glass. :lol:

Our quiet rural life sounds so very dull when I hear greyt stories like this

Milo would trade all the urban excitement of our town of population 6,000 for one ratting session in your barn. :)   Actually, this town works hard to keep things interesting and people employed now that most of the old jobs are overseas.  It happens to be the town where the mother of GreyTalk's LBass (Lucy) grew up, and I was able to send her some photographs a few years ago.  I wonder what businesses would have been in that little alley in the 1920s and 30s.

I used to work on the edges of the legal profession.  The standard way to describe a knock-down, drag-out, hair-pulling fight was, "Words were exchanged."

I wonder, too.  After all, in this species calling someone an SOB is a compliment.

The phrase I used in many many sets of Minutes was "discussion ensued". 😜

I've been there! Momma and I went up Molly's Knob when we were a bit younger. I don't think I could drag my two up nowadays.

My Momma's mom did wear combat boots, she was a British Army nurse during the war. LOL
