On my walks, I often come across these two gentlemen walking their old dog along the paths.
They walk at a leisurely pace, stopping to check out wildflowers along the way.
Each time I see them, I’m reminded of the song, “Old Friends” by Roger Miller and Willie Nelson.
I rendered the original photo in black and white to hopefully more accurately capture the sentiment.
“Old friends pitching pennies in the park
Playing croquet till it’s dark old friends
Mmm, old friends swapping lies of life and loves
Pitching popcorn to the doves old friends, mmm
Old friends looking up to watch a bird
Holding arms to climb a curb
Old friends, oh, old friends
Old friends Lord when all my work is done
Bless my life and grant me one
Old friend, at least one old Old friend”Lyrics by Roger Miller
