    Driving along the other day, realized you dont see cassete tape/ video tape blowing about in the hedgerow anymore, just thought I’d share that.

    I saw a James Blunt CD in the gutter, not sure if that’s the modern equivalent of white dog poo or a shredded cassette.

    I was pleased to see a porn mag flapping around in a hedge whilst cycling home last week. Thought they were pretty much extinct now we have the internet.

    I saw an unravelled .mp3 file in a hedge the other day. Ones and Zeros all tangled up.

    Nah, that still happens. I saw that up the top of Fox Hill yesterday evening, and I saw a hula hoop at the base of a bus stop sign on Herries Road on my way in this a.m.

    Apparently white dog shit was a result of chalk being added to dog food? which they no longer do, might be one of those accepted wisdom things though….

    Mongrel dogs with strings of sausages in their mouths being chased down the street by big, fat, ruddy-faced butchers.

    Runaways with all their belongings gathered up in a handkerchief at the end of a stick.

    Bobbies who bend at the knees whilst saying “‘Allo ‘allo ‘allo”.

    Burglars in stripey tops and masks, clambering over garden walls with bags marked “SWAG”.

    People with toothache wearing a bandage wrapped right the way around from the jaw to the top of their head.

    Young boys in shorts and cap, with a finely crafted catapult hanging out their back pocket.

    Bullies picking smaller kids up by the front of their jumper, and bashing them in the face so hard their hand disappears.

    Mice being chased by cats being chased by dogs.

    discarded glue-sniffer’s carrier bags with dried up Evo-Stik. Them were the days

    Portable stereo systems the size of a small van, perched jauntily on the shoulder of a Rastafarian.
