Things Abandoned on the Pavement Within 100 Yards of My Home That I Have Taken a Photograph of #6



There's a story here, isn't there? Either:

1. Elderly relative now too ill/dead to walk at all, even with Zimmer frame. Unneeded possessions left out on street. (I will keep a lookout for feeding tubes/iron lungs as the weeks progress.)

2. Elderly relative can miraculously walk unaided again. Unneeded possessions left out on street. Though in this case or the previous one, surely anyone who needs a Zimmer frame and would find this one useful is unlikely to be strolling breezily past, and more likely to be lying in a heap somewhere else. The chances of someone needing a Zimmer frame right here, right now are quite small.

3. Tree suffering from Dutch Elm disease.
