I hadn't been going very long before I came upon this motley crew, the Friday morning Ramblers. I have joined them occasionally in the past, so after a few brief greetings, we went our separate ways.
About a mile before the town, is the pond where I bring Henry for his swim. It is very convenient, only a short drive to get here. I have a feeling we might be coming on Sunday.
It's funny how you drive along the same route often and don't notice things. Today I saw this beautiful bush growing up the boundary wall of an industrial estate. It is absolutely full of red berries, I have never seen so many on one bush.
Another reason for me walking today was that it doesn't cost any money, plus I was on a mission, and the walking was a significant part of my plan. I took with me a cheque for £1,000, this is some spare cash that I have accumulated through being frugal and thrifty. So you see, every penny saved mounts up. I proudly handed it over the counter at the Building Society in the High Street. This will reduce the capitol on my mortgage, giving me a reduction on my monthly payments. If I keep doing this, chipping away at it, it won't be too long before I own the whole house, yipeeeeee.
I decided to stay a bit longer in town, have a couple of hours in the library, and get the bus back. Halfway through the journey it was still sunny so I got off the bus to walk the last bit along the path at the bottom of the woods. There is often stuff dumped around here, because you can get a vehicle down it and people come at night to dispose of their rubbish. I mentioned before about the tyres I found and had to ring the council about them because there were so many.
This time I came across a lot of wheel trims, in carrier bags that were falling apart. Aha, I thought, what artwork can I make with these, my little brain ticking away. Try leaning them up against the trees.....
No, doesn't quite do it for me, the trees are too far apart. I know, what about laying them down.
Yes, that's better, I like that. For all people who are lost, walk this way, ha ha. Should I leave them there for someone else to rearrange them. Probably best not to because they will only get run over and smashed to bits, that would make a worse mess.
