It is the little things that enrich us the most generously. A smile on someone's face warms more than a nuclear plant might.

The other day I was walking through a sitting-out area. An elderly man was sitting there alone. He looked up at me and offered a "Nin hao" spontaneously. I replied the same to him.

Then he switched to his perhaps rusty English:

"Please, shit down!" And he patted the bench next to him.

There also is that elderly lady. Many old folks are hostile to pets but not this sprightly woman.

Every time I happen to encounter her as I walk my dogs, she asks again: "san'ge gou?" Yes, three dogs.

The other day I passed by a house which is home to a dog of the same breed as ours. The dog has taken a fancy to our youngest dog because she is a bitch and he is a male, and you can add two to two...

The dog follows us to almost everywhere as long as our young bitch is walking on the ground. If he gets a bit too enterprising, I lift her up and place her on my shoulder.

Then we four dogs and one human bumped into the woman again. "Wah, si'ge gou?" she went. Which one was the baby, she wanted to know. I explained to her that the third adult was the "boyfriend" of the daughter of the two other dogs.

"Wah, when are they going to marry?" she exclaimed, laughing.

A nice woman to have as a neighbour!

Just don't let them know you're a full time western propagandist who hates everything about China except chit chat about your dogs.
If capitalism promotes innovation and creativity then why aren't scientists and artists the richest people in a capitalist nation?

Bob, you sound like a broken record. Is anything other than your gramophone broken?

He is just jealous of you.
