Marking Our Territory: Senior Citizens Week

Eko came down to breakfast this morning and noticed something was up.


An extra set of bowls…

I didn’t run the plan by Eko, but I thought this week would be a good time to do some community service.  And so I invited a couple of senior citizens, my brother James and his dog Dutch, to visit for the week.


Dutch is just a few months shy of 10 and has a distinguished George Clooney-esque beard

After college I lived with James and Dutch for a couple years so it is nice that I am finally able to return the favor and play host.  Of course that doesn’t preclude me from making jokes about them both being old men!  It’s a long ride from NJ to Chicago so we headed straight for the park to run off some energy.


We managed to get the cousins to hold still for just long enough to get a photo


Then they were off!  Dutch still has plenty of spring in those old bones and he bounded around the park for the better part of an hour


A smile said that the long ride was worth it

After the park we walked over to get a closer look at the lake. Maybe a bit too close!


Dutch was begging to jump in – he loves the water – but James wisely held onto the leash


Nothing like soaking up the sun and enjoying the view


Not a bad day for a couple of old fogies!

James and Dutch will be around for the week so Eko and I will get to show them all of our favorite spots.  Should be a great time, provided they can keep up!

    Bet your brother loves the old guys comments – looks like he is about 22 years old. Not really an old guy by my standards (having hit the 50 mark this year) – and it looks like the two of them have a great time together! You guys have a great week

    Sounds like a week packed full of some fun to us. These are great pictures and what a handsome doggie Dutch is. By looking at you and your brother there is no doubt you are brothers…look alikes is what we say. You all enjoy your week together and hope you get some great pictures and or videos to share. Hugs and nose kisses

  3. That sounds like lots of fun…I will put a call in to the Mayor to let him know that it will be a wild week 😉 Don’t do anything I wouldn’t do, which leaves everything pretty much open!

  4. looks like you are all gonna have a blast!

  5. Hello Eko amd Will! I’ve been following along for a few weeks now and thoroughly enjoying your doings – but. speaking as a nearly there senior citizen, I think you should check out that second to last pic and see who is ready for more and who is – well, just plain pooped! 🙂

    Lovely pictures! Have a great time together, but I think it’s not going to be a problem. 🙂

  9. I’m the first child of my family, but my brother is still the older, I’ll never be older than 26. I’m stuck there, and Doggy has been 18 months for awhile already, we drink the same water, keeps us young.
    Dutch sports the gray hair nicely.

  10. It’s always great toi have visitors in your crib! And even a guy with a beard like George Clooney (stop your drooling, Mom – it’s a D.O.G.)!

  11. Nothing like company that comes prepared for doggy fun! You guys will have a great time and I bet Dutch can teach Eko a thing or two.
