As many of you know, Maddie (our Irish Setter) and I have a routine. It’s Maddie’s routine – the OCDog – I’m just at the other end of the leash. The activities remain the same, but the timing is in flux. As the longer days of summer have arrived, our morning walk is beginning earlier. The effect of the early sunshine isn’t limited to Maddie and me. We encounter several people walking at the early time, and the bunnies are busy eating.
Maddie and I end up crossing the streets at odd places, to avoid. Then, as she barks (at the people, not at the bunnies), I say things to her, hoping the people will overhear. So, our walks are a series of one-liners:
“Don’t bark at the nice lady.”
“Let’s cross here so the bunny can finish eating.”
Walking past he crosswalks we weren’t using caused me to think about Abbey Road, by The Beatles, and the title comes from my favorite song off that album, written and performed by my favorite Beatle, George Harrison. It seems I am not alone. According to Wikipedia (really, it’s OK to use them sometimes) as of September 2019, it was the most streamed Beatles song in the United Kingdom, with over 50 million plays. I’m not in the UK, but they should know the best Beatles song.
