Michael was a familiar figure around town, racing along pavements at 8mph on his mobility scooter, stopping in the pub for a pint or two. So when he broke down outside Boots there were many willing hands to push him home.
“This machine weighs a ton,” one friend said, “Forget to charge it up?”
“My grandson’s fault,” Michael said, “Plugged his extension lead into my socket without asking – they’d cut his power off for growing pot in his loft.”
“You should make him pay for the electric.”
“Nah – I owe him for a month’s supply as it is.”
A combination of photos prompted my story this week - one from Rochelle's blog and one which I took on Monday while shopping for a lawn edging tool with Mum.
Thanks to Linda Kreger for the first one and to Rochelle for hosting Friday Fictioneers - Follow the Frog from her blog to read other stories and/or to join in! https://rochellewisoff.com/
