Did you notice what book he was reading pauline?
Some of these down and outs are very intelligent. My father in Law worked in Doncaster and did much the same as you, he took an old gent food and the occasional coffee. He later learned that the bloke was a maths genius and had fallen on hard times.

I didnít notice what book he was reading, because it was open, I didnít like to ask, in fact I never even thought about it.

I noticed him eyeing me up in my pink jogging bottoms, even the bus driver said as I boarded, you neednít have put your hand out, I could see your pink jogging bottoms a mile off,

Never a truer word spoken, OGF. I once knew a brilliant statistician who was so obsessed with his maths that the rest of his life just fell apart.

I'd accompany you if I thought you could keep up with me.

I'll be on my bicycle!

(You'd still probably beat me! )

I would love to get to know his history, baby steps to start with, he felt uncomfortable when I asked him if he was actually homeless ,he has a hostel he stays in, thatís as far as I got,as I sensed he was uncomfortable, so I then went to get his coffee and sandwich, he even told me what he liked, he doesnít like egg or cheese, he has the most amazing eyes I have ever seen.

Indeed, Pauline. And after just reading OldGreyFox's thoroughly inspiring profile for a third time (after something he's just said in another thread), I've decided to get on my bike a lot more often from now on.

We have a beautiful stretch of coastline from here (Marske) to Redcar, with spectacular views of a wind turbine farm (I think they're rather beautiful), and I've been letting it all go to waste for far too long now.

Re: Talk about anything....

Well Hello All,
Thread was started to talk about anything, mostly just what comes to mind or materialise's.
I find it hard to stay on course, so a good place for me at times.... Threads get names on a subject and if you not wanting to join it for what ever reason, then here, anybody can do just do the alternative.

I have just had a work out myself..digging and weeding the veggie's bed..now almost finished and raked it over just so it looks the a tad neater.
With floors it is hard work here with the cleaning .Any cleaning is keep fit, I say.. You do see the dirt, as with fitted carpets it can hide easily...

Normal here to have Tiled floors and Rugs when needed. Central Heating, you can see from the For Sale web pages, is not so common here..but the times are a changing...

Heat Pumps are fitted often in new builds, so then they go well underground, where they are much more efficient....work like a fridge does really...Coffee Pot time...

yes I still ride my bike..around the garden at this time..progress, little steps..
