My most recent little mooch

Carrying on round the bungalow trying to find a way in my attention was diverted

So nothing much in the other outbuildings, time to try and get in the bungalow. This is not an explore for large boys and girls, a very small window that wouldn’t fully open. Do I? Don’t I?

I hoofed my camera bag through landing it on the single bed
I had burnt my bridges
I had crossed the rubicon

I Do.

Now that was fun, scrambling up and squeezing through head first, preying I didn’t get stuck.

I didn’t.

The momentum of my upper body shot me forward like a constipated turd being released after a double dose of Stool Ease for dogs.

“Shit” said I, thinking at some point I’ve got to do that in reverse, let’s hope the undergrowth is as forgiving as a wet minging carpet.

Some serious mould spreading throughout gave the air a damp feel and odour

A fantastic postcard from 1954,writing home to his parents as he embarks on an adventure of his own, aged about 21yrs. Love the quaint “Dear Mother and Dad”

So that was it waving bye bye to pudsey on the way I managed to slither back out of the window onto terra firma.

This is saddening. You can tell hiw hopeful the man was happily exploring his creativity post retirement and making art. And then suddenly his wife dies in a fire. His whole life disintegrated and he sat there for three years in pain until he succumbed to his torn and shattered heart.

Even more sad is that his family though so little of him they never collected his belongings.

Yes I agree, the fact that the family have done so little is very very poor

That is truly sad!!! And almost unreal how everything just lies there untouched to this day... almost as if nobody in the extended family even cared... The presence of "them" in the house is still very much THERE... almost as if you could see them having breakfast and tea.

Also really tragic how all his art just stands there...

What a sad sad tale, the bloke must have been devastated and left his art in the garage for the people... never to be seen. I'm wondering how he lasted another 3 years after all that.

No kids? Why haven't they take ownership of all this, it does make me wonder sometimes.

Totally agree, families huh!
