A reminder to be grateful!

Sylvia K said...

I do agree with Sallie!! And I am grateful!! Hope your week is off to a great start, Lowell!!

Kay said...

Yes, a reminder to be grateful. I can't imagine packing my entire life onto a bike like that. It's a painful thought.

Lois said...

A sad sight. I'm concerned that there appears to be a crutch attached to the bike too.

Kate said...

Shameful for a country such as ours.

Randy said...

We have a gentleman here that looks almost the same as this guy.

William Kendall said...

Quite a reminder. And he reminds me of one up here on a bike.

Halcyon said...

Looks like he has an interesting load to carry.

llandudnopictures said...

He's far from on his own.

Bibi said...

He walks tall and proud. The others are right; grateful is the word.

Karl Demetz said...

I do also agree with Sallie and the others !

Everywhere Lowell.. people's lives can change drastically with a twist of fate.

PDP has spoken my feelings. Life on wheels...

VP said...

Luck, fate, grateful, shameful... I beg to disagree. There is still around something called free will?

cieldequimper said...

I'm sorry that I only see Mao's China here...

(I'm old fashioned, how about playing a Monopoly?)

I disagree with VP , life can be cruel you loose your job , home , you can get sick and normally the friends you had are quickly disappearing. What has this to do with free will. So no judgment without knowing what happenef to this man.
Regards Margaux

He’s a regular panhandler near Walmarts. He shops in our Publix so he must live around here. The crutch seems to be a prop, but I am not sure
