Dog and people strolling in Sierra Madre, CA

Temperature in the mid-70's -  brilliant blue cloudless sky - helicopter circling foothills - day workers slumped hopefully on park benches - mothers and grandparents pushing strollers - (lots of infant twins in this town) - and dogs large and small trotting down the boulevard.

Along comes a plump woman, short in stature, zealous in wardrobe - snug cap, winter coat,  dress striped and polkadotted, white furry boots, rouged cheeks, penciled eyebrows, with a comment: "I need a dog to walk in this town."

I'm wearing shorts, the doodles are thirsty - no time to stop to see Neil the pig.
