What the f......????
This is a "blows my mind" moment. This is something that truly amazes me and yet breaks my heart. These are the possessions of a homeless man I run into on my daily trek to my office....I don't know whether you can see it or not but there's a pallet (on wheels no less) that's about 10x5 with a rope that he uses to drag it along over his shoulders....three shopping carts ...two small dumpters just brimming over with "stuff". The funny part of all this is that it's in a different spot every time I go by! I mean he's got enough "stuff" here to funish a five room apartment!!!!! and it's not all junk either...there's kitchen chairs, a table, shelves, paintings.....All I can figure is that maybe he sets up this stuff at night and entertains? I realize this is not something to joke about...but....man!!! he must be in really good shape to be moving this shit around like that.....Maybe some day I'll ask him!
