An alert dog keeping watch on a fisher price picnic table didn't stay put very long for a picture. I like walking on all the dirty allyway roads between paved avenues in Hyde Park. They go in between all the back yards. I see the hidden gardens and green houses, play grounds and sand boxes, at night, the grills being used. I smell the Christmas trees people tossed out onto trash heaps and they remind me of home. People tidying up their yards or taking out recycling say hi for the most part. I think this beautiful, warm weather we're having encourages friendliness.
