The Stranger With A Cage

The Stranger With A Cage

 

The following short story is my own theory as to why a young stranger dressed as he was, carrying a strange item was walking in a wood.  We crossed paths in my local wood one morning early in July, you can read about it Here. I also invite you to write your own interpretation of this unusual young mans story.

……………………..

Jaideep watched as his mother sat heavily in shame, head in hands as he gently broke the news to her.

“How are we going to deal with this?” She exclaimed, “you know they don’t have any more chances Jaideep, what are we going to do?”

Jaideep slowly sat down opposite his mother.  He was a smart, gentle young man who, under unfortunate circumstances had become the head of the family at an early age, but had taken on the responsibility extremely well.  His twin sisters, on the other hand Continue reading “The Stranger With A Cage”

A Strange Encounter, You Write The Story

A Strange Encounter, You Write The Story

I thought I’d already seen many strange things in my lifetime, but it turns out I hadn’t.  This all became apparent on a morning dog walk through my local wood.  I  came across the strangest encounter I have ever had.  Certainly more strange than seeing two legged, large pink rabbits snowboarding down a mountain or grown men, purposely wearing their trousers so they fall beneath their ass line, whilst trying to hold them up from the front and walking as if they’d had a bad accident in them.  No, this latest encounter left me a little perplexed.  I’ll explain… Continue reading “A Strange Encounter, You Write The Story”

Mud? Who cares!

Mud? Who cares!

For as long as I can remember I have been around dogs.  I grew up with dogs and as soon as I left home and was able to care for one myself well, I didn’t hesitate.

Dogs have been a major part of my life and I can’t imagine my life without them.

I have spoken in previous posts about selling up to live on a boat, well the business I sold in 2017 was a Dog Walking and Petsitting business which I set up and ran for four years and if we hadn’t made the decision to move away and live on our boat, then I’d still be there dog walking and Continue reading “Mud?
