I’ve been up a few hours and it’s surprising what’s going on in our road between 4.30 and 6am.
Gru, he of the cheekiness using our neighbour’s bin for his garden waste a little while ago, walks his dog between 5 and 5.30. No doubt he has left the animal’s calling card where it fell as he never clears up, which is probably why he walks it so early. He hasn’t used our neighbour’s bin since I ‘caught’ him, but she doesn’t put that one out so early now as she’s an early riser and has plenty of time before the truck comes.
There are other dog walkers too, including Jack, the JRT we looked after last year when his owner’s wife passed away and I was asked if I could look after him on the day of the funeral.
He doesn’t quite know what to make of Maya. Still, the dog biscuit he buried in the garden is ‘safe’ as it’s been buried in concrete to stop her eating the stones.
We had a small shower around 6, but it didn’t come to anything, not even enough to dampen the grass, and it’s a lot cooler today.
A couple of guys have gone out to collect their morning paper, and another has an early walk on the prom before he starts his day as a driver. We’ve met up with him a couple of times when we’ve been early taking Maya up for her first walk. It’s 7.30 now and Hubby is still in bed as it was my turn to do the early shift.
Hopefully we should be able to collect our meds today. We put our order in last Friday and although the screen said they would be ready in two working days, we’ve given them four, but I shall still ring first. They do not appear to be that efficient to be honest. The shop is small and badly designed, with just one counter which deals with both sales and prescriptions. I was waiting in a queue of four people for almost half an hour once.
