This is my challenge No.93 Falling.
As you can see, this poor fellow has fallen from his super powered
bicycle. I had fun making this Steampunk collage.

Adding to yesterday's Home Help memories, I went to an elderly lady as a Holiday Relief. She wanted some shopping done and gave me a list. Up until then I don't think I had ever met anyone so cantankerous, fussy and downright unloveable!
I walked to the shop, not far and while there, we had a sudden cloudburst and the main road I had to cross was totally flooded. I had to wade through knee deep water and I was totally soaked, my hair dripping, in fact everything dripping. When I got back, I stood dripping onto a sheet of newspaper she had lain on the floor and I asked if she'd mind signing my chit so I could leave off early to go home and change my clothes, and I would make up the 10 minutes left next time I came.
No....she wanted me to cut her hair.
So there I stood, dripping onto more newspaper as I cut her hair....
I still had to go home on my bicycle and change, even my underwear was wet! I was 10 minutes late getting to the next client, who didn't mind at all!
Yes, she was definitely unloveable, and has always stuck in my mind.

cool steampunk! and I love the stories! What an awful old bat she was!

I definitely don't want to be remembered as cantakerous and unloveable...too bad for her that she didn't try harder to be more loving and kind. If only she had known how she would be remembered years later.

I'm loving these stories, June.

Have a wonderful day...praying for you and Freddie right now.

That's exactly why I don't get on bicycles anymore! Great collage! Oh. I hope you cut a big chunk out on the back of that old biddie's head!
