My New Co-pilot

I'm not known for my sartorial elegance .
Nowadays my somewhat eclectic attire is complemented by a large pair of Princess Leia headphones through which I listen to London's talk radio station when Mary and I take our daily power walk.
I know I look a knob, but I don't care.
They also keep my ears warm in cold weather.

This morning as Mary and I stopped at the top field above the village to take in the view,
farmer Basil stopped his van briefly on his way to feed his ewes
We chatted for a short time and Mary climbed into my lap
" That little bitch loves you!" He remarked.

  1. Do people actually stop and talk to you when you have headphones like that on?

    I tend to wear headphones when I don't want anyone to talk to me.

    Maybe they're stopping you because they believe you to have a message from Obi Wan Kenobi.

  8. When I first saw this pic on FB I thought: "That's strange. Why is John trying to eat his dog?" Images can indeed be tricky things; the camera can, in fact,lie.

  10. Neither dogs nor chickens give a care to what we wear. Cats, on the other hand, may.

  12. When I see some people in headphones out with their dog I wonder if they are listening to something very important -such as a doctor's notes or university papers x

  13. I can't imagine wearing headphones when I'm out and about, I like my senses to be on full alert! I get very jealous when Rick ignores me and climbs onto Paul's lap.

  16. You come over as very lovable. I spent an exciting 10 mins with a patients puppy the other day whilst they booked an appointment. They were sent out for making the receptionist sneeze!! I am a cat gal through and through but fell in love with this little chap. We talked about all sorts. well I did he listened and snuggled up as it was chilly.

  17. We were saying on the train the other day that people in headphones like this would have been considered prats a few years ago

  28. Looking a knob and not caring, is part of the joy of ageing. The reason we moved to Hythe is we can walk into town. My first purchase was a rather gay, pardon the expression, shopping trolley. When I asked the man if he minded, he said ‘I don’t give a flying fig what I look like!’ Or words to that effect. The pair of us look total tits and we don’t give a stuff!
