West Side Encounter II

Walker Evans took me on one of his new walk routes today; after going down a couple of streets, we crossed Elmwood Avenue at Hodge Avenue, from the Sunoco station to Ambrosia, then down Elmwood awhile.
After we crossed West Utica Street, Walker said hello to a woman at the Elmwood/Utica bus stop; she said hello and pet Walker while she ate her breakfast, a dish of baked beans. She asked if she cold give Walker some, but because Walker has had dietary issues and has recurring gastritis, I told her thank you but no thanks.
As we said goodbye and Walker and I walked away, she called out to us, "I hope you get a new dog when he or she dies."
