our place ... lately.

Found at the oppy, a rare find, my local Vinnies has gone to the dogs.
They no longer put things on the floor as they come in, instead they are
sending everything to a central warehouse, and in turn receiving stuff
from a central warehouse, so the stock is not the same. It's bland, homogenised.
I wonder how much ends up in the bin now?
Gone are the old girls sitting at the till in a dimly lit store, pontificating
the cost of living, and young people's lack of manners - I miss them.
Found at the bottom of the garden.
These appeal to the old girl in me!
