Some times when I'm running I think about what I'm going to blog. I had just gotten to the Floodway and I thought I heard a vehicle coming up behind me. I thought, "That's impossible. There's no way they could've gotten the gate opened that fast." I turned around and it was a guy on a bicycle. So I thought, "That's not really blog-worthy." But as I watched the guy ride off into the distance I saw him approaching a man walking two dogs. I could tell that one of the dogs was restrained and the other was not. The dog that wasn't on a leash barked at the guy on the bike. I hoped he would get the dog under control by the time I got there. However, he did not. And the dog came at me barking. Since I'm not afraid of dogs I just kept running and said, "Nice puppy." I looked at the old man and told him good morning. He just looked at me with a grumpy old man face. So I wondered if it was even his dog. Maybe he was grumpy because this dog was loose and wouldn't leave him and his dog alone. Who knows? Well, I got to the Canal road and headed back south. I could see across the Floodway that the other dog was still with them. The moral of today's story is - don't be a grumpy old man.
