Monday 14th May


I believe this is a modern day tramp.

He was seen earlier in the day on the road from Wiveliscombe and turned up outside the Post Office here about 12:30.

It looks like his worldly goods are piled on the trolley and he had his extra personal stuff in a case with wheels as he brought that in the shop rather than leaving outside.

The trolley is a modern take on what used to be a pram that the tramps used to push along.

His clothes were very clean and he didn’t smell.

He bought a permanent marker pen and spent ages outside scribing on one of his bags before he disappeared off on his travels.

I asked one of our older customers what they do all week now that they are retired.

“Monday through Friday, I do nothing” he replied “then on Saturday and Sunday I rest”.
