A slow walk on a dimly lit street

Sorry, repost...but one so worth Enjoy!

I'm walking down a dimly lit street. Only one street lamp adds a glimmer of light. Once focussed my eyes see where I'm going. People appear as shadows, sometimes alarming me! I walk slowly, deliberately, stopping every few feet, waiting, sometimes for s few seconds, sometimes a few minutes. I am very patient. No need to hurry. I carry a bag with me as I move along. I'm going to need it. I move along now. Down to the corner and turn. I feel safer here. There's more light. More traffic. More noise. More green grass for lil feet to run through. And then, it happens!!!!! I bend over with the bag in my hand and scoop up the poop. ;-)

This reminds me of my dad. I call him, "Chief Walks With Sh*t."

I liked that a lot. That was great! Do you think dogs get satisfaction knowing we have to publicly carry a bag and clean up after them? I think my dog Mabel truly does ;-)

As always, great artwork, too.
