Poor bloke had probably moved from Sutton Coalfield to escape you! 😀 Why were you in East London anyway, collecting your London pension? 😀

Perhaps it was Shakespeare's Stratford.  Where some famous words of fiction came from....
No act of kindness, no matter how small, is ever wasted.

Yes, I thought it a long way to go in a Micra with two dogs! What crossed my mind was Christmas shopping at Westfield! 😀 🛒 🛍️

Cambridge yesterday near the Metro bank, almost a double bed mattress on the pavement, why do the council take no action against this trash surrounded by boxes and carrier bags.

Don't think so Ron, his dogs are better looked after than some people look after their kids, & better behaved too.

Because "this trash" are people, human being just like me and you who for a multitude of reasons, some self inflicted and some inflicted on them by the society we live in, have ended up on the streets with nothing.

Think the dog/dogs are the feel sorry for me  sign  does not impress me , and in MY opinion this riff raff should not be allowed to clutter our towns .






They were not around in previous years , not seem them allowed around the railings of Buckingham Palace or Parliament they would soon be moved on. Quite rightly.

They do indeed look after their dogs who are often their only companions & who probably give them a reason to carry on living.

Also their dogs don't judge them or moan about how they live.
Make every day count. Every day is precious.

I can see Bri looking for plastic mashers..

Better still he could buy some oversized ones made of candy.. Then he could suck on his words and swallow them..
