Not too much new on the home front after all the excitement of Dorian. Yesterday morning was a typical garbage day Wednesday. So her highness’ monologue during our morning constitutional sounded like this. “Viktor. Viktor. No. Stop! No. Don’t pee on the neighbors’ garbage can. Frodo. Frodo. Noooooo peeeeee there. Whoa. Whoa. (While she is pooper scooping). Whoa. WAIT. Viktor leave it. LEAVE IT. (While I attempt to grab something on the road that must have come from someone’s garbage can.) Leave it. Whoa. Frodo – that’s three poop bags for you alone. WHAT did you eat? Elroy. Elroy. Leave it. LEAVE IT. Yes – that’s where Frodo peed. Leave it! But wait – don’t pee there…” This monologue continues for 50 minutes of walking. We love Wednesdays.
Yesterday her highness did something that retired people can do. She went with a friend to see a movie matinee. They went to see a movie called the Peanut Butter Falcon. I like peanut butter. I would have probably enjoyed the movie. Not that I was invited. Anyway, both her highness and her friend very much enjoyed the feel good film.
And speaking of feel good movies, there will be a movie coming out soon starring Tom Hanks. It’s all about Mr.Rogers- that famous American children’s tv show star. He hosted 900 episodes of Mr. Rogers’ Neighborhood from 1968 until 2001. Mr. Rogers, with his calm, sincere manner, was a genuine “good guy.” He talked about kindness and sharing and equality. And he wrote books for children – including one entitled: When a Pet Dies. He even talked about losing a pet on his show. You can Google the episode.
Mr Rogers also talked about walking the dog. Here’s a sample of his mild-mannered, pleasant approach to going for a walk. Note he isn’t doing an unending monologue with the dog….
Her highness is looking forward to the Mr. Rogers movie. I wonder if THIS time I can go along….
Time for our morning walk. No garbage cans this morning. Unless someone forgot to bring their’s in. We can only hope!
Have a good one. Peace and paws up.
One thought on “It’s a beautiful day in the neighborhood…”
I so relate to Viktor’s views as I experience I most of the same things when I walk Spencer. Amazing how much alike PONS can be. 😄
