……. yesterday, he couldn’t believe his eyes when he found the most romantic, rusty trunk he has ever seen, which almost blocked the pavement and his safe passage to work!
Nigel immediately sensed that it was undoubtedly a trunk of untold history and great mystery that would undoubtedly yield great treasures, and Nigel being Nigel and emboldened by fanciful imaginings couldn’t help taking a peek at its contents (if any).
It yielded,to many very little, what looked like bike handles and an old bit fashioned drill ….. not quite doubloons or pieces at eight, but treasure indeed to a curious mind !!!
Sadly,(and maddingly for a totally entranced Nigel), the trunk was far too big for him to claim the ancient right of “finders keepers” and get home. With a bit of spit and polish it wouldn’t have taken much to do up. Sometimes having “the gift of finding things” can be a double edged sword sighed Nigel to himself, especially when you have to leave them where you found them!!!!
