Black cats. They are so mysterious. My neighbor’s kitty would be sleeping on the porch, under the car, in the garden, and I could never tell what I was looking at. He was just a big, black, blob. Finally, on one of my walks, he was lounging on the top of the garden wall with his paw hanging. He looked so debonair! I’ve seen him since and he always hangs his paw this way.
Sometimes I like to walk in one of our small downtowns. It’s fun to people watch and sometimes I see furry friends doing the same. I liked this little pup in a t-shirt surveying all the people eating and laughing. It is such a welcome sight after pandemic lockdowns.
One of the regional parks in our area has a little train that runs a 1-mile loop in the park. They decorate it seasonally and it recently took on it’s harvest look. There was also a pumpkin patch so the place was filled with kids that day. Walking by the tracks as the train went by got me lots of waves and smiles and even a blown kiss from a cutie dressed as a bee!
On one of my walks, I came up a group of kitties on a roof. I couldn’t decide if they were avoiding something or just hanging out together. They look too relaxed to be frightened or bothered. Perhaps this is the feline equivalent of gossiping over the fence.
Being locked down for the pandemic was not good for my attitude. However, we did explore some new places to walk in our area and found a very pretty regional park. Lots of paths and trees. The squirrels, duck, hummingbirds and other birds make it so lively. Although no longer locked down, we continue to walk this park. It’s still good for my attitude!
