Normally I enjoy a nice walk with the Mrs but one day last week it was totally spoiled as we had to keep stopping every few minutes so the Mrs could collect this bag full of items! I admit there are a lot of peculiar smells and items along the edge of our route which I sometimes stop to investigate but usually ignore as they are of no interest to me:- seldom something edible, not the scent of another animal which always interests me, and usually pretty boring but the Mrs seems to have started taking an interest in collecting these random items whilst grumbling to herself about thoughtless people.
She sometimes carries a stick but on this day a thin blue job appeared with a wicked grabber on the end which I managed to avoid at all costs until I realised it was not meant for me….
When we walk along the road towards the fields I have to stop every time a car comes along behind us as there is no footpath to walk along safely. Luckily the Mrs’ hearing has been heightened recently by some mechanical means that I don’t understand but she can hear every noise I make and luckily most cars coming up behind us, but I do worry about the scentless silent ones…..cars I mean.
