Telis is totally down to pose for me but when I crack a joke about his cowboy style, I think he's offended.
Even his dog Lorian suddenly perks up his ears - was that a growl ?
"I'm not a cowboy. I'm a philosopher."
I put down my camera and start stuttering an apology: "I only said that because I think you look cool!..." He doesn't bat a lash. He leaves me hanging. Suddenly, he bursts out laughing: don't worry lady!
No foul, no harm, but I'm pretty sure I can still hear his sidekick grumble so I scoot before I get barked at.
