So earlier today I took Keesha out to let her sit in the sun for a bit to warm up her arthritic joints. We also went for a quick walk around the neighbourhood to give her a bit of exercise. Jadey decided to come along as usual. It's also an opportunity for Keesha to catch up with the latest scents and 'marks' left behind by the neighbourhood dogs and foxes, she often lags behind a bit because she's got a lot of smelling to do, stopping at almost every bush and tree along the way. At one point I got down on my knees to take my usual photos, but when I finished and stood up there was a guy in his driveway across the road taking photos of Keesha and Jadey with his iPhone. He must've come out of his house in the 30 seconds or so. I held up my camera and yelled across: "TAKING PHOTOS OF THEM TOO?" He misheard me, he thought I said "taking photos of them two" instead "too". He pointed at each of us in turn while yelling back with a big grin: "NO! ONE, TWO, and THREE!!", pointing at me also. We must've been a spectacle. I laughed back and we had a brief yelling-chat about Keesha and Jadey. Other encounters we've had: - a man loading his truck outside his home sees us. He drops everything and hurries to his front door and yells into house, something about 'QUICK, IT'S THEM AGAIN'. His wife rushes out apron 'n all, and they both lean back on their gate and watch all three of us with huge grins on their faces. I wave at them, they wave back. On another occasion he comes up to talk with me to ask about Jadey coming for a walk with us, he said at first he thought it was his neighbour's cat because they look similar. - another time a family comes home in their large family car as the three of us were walking past their house. They drove very very slowly into their driveway, they were all pressed against the windows looking at us, parents and kids. A bit further down the street, I turned around to make sure Jadey was keeping up, I saw the mother holding her young son in her arms, they were peeking around their hedge to look at Jadey walking with us. - sometimes Jadey likes to sniff around in people's front yards and sometimes she takes so long I have to sneak on to the front yard to pick her up. One time I was halfway up somebody's driveway to catch Jadey when the guy came out of his house and saw me on his property. I looked apologetic and pointed at Jadey. He broke into a smile and said: "oh I've seen you and your cat before, she's always walking with you and your dog isn't she?" I've never seen this guy before, I can only imagine him and his family can see us from inside their house on previous occasions maybe. - a collection of other random individuals / groups / families / other people with their dogs we meet along the way who, at first sees Jadey, and then you see the moment they realise she's with us, they almost always say something to me or to each other, kids and parents. - of course there was this moment too which I've posted here before, when a girl and her brother (who is just outside the frame) attempted to make friends with Jadey: The girl's brother looked a year or two older than the girl. He always waves and says hello when he sees me now. Their mum gives me a smile too when she happens to be out with them. Of course, it's much, much, less eventful, and a whole lot more quiet when we got out for a walk at 3am.
