I took poppy for a late (sun setting) nights long walk! It was a beautiful evening the sun still warm.. I wore jeans but wished I had wore shorts! I am thrilled with all our walking this summer - last night I thought - this is fantastic, we kept up a great pace, no balance issues Life is good... until the snow arrives anyhow. ;)
This older gentleman (my age- lol) walks towards me with a cute little dog (off leash) it runs over to Poppy- I realize how small she is when this small dog is 2x her size..
I say: "Oh, he's cute! Whats his name?
The guys responds :
"LaFleur!... Like the hockey player. My son named him!" & smiles at me
then he asks "what's your dogs name?"
Me: "Poppy! ... like Opium. I named her!"
Well.. if you could have seen this guys face! He put his hand up to his forehead like he had to seriously think about what I just said... it took him a second and then he burst out laughing.
We both did.. then I said 'nice meeting you' and went on my way.
Giggling as I left- his face made it all worth while. lol
*I am Canadian I knew instantly who he was referring to, btw- I'm not sure et it was Lafeur I do know it was a Canadian hockey player!! lol
I'm up and ready to PAINT! How about you? Lets get this show on the road!
Have a terrific day! Do what you love & the rest WILL follow.
