Samuel Gordon Stuart Gordon-Stewart has sent in the following curio taken in Reid which makes one wonder at the effort some people will put in.

check-ouT, sorry.

It’s a lot easier than trying to find somewhere to put the things after you’ve emptied them out on the check-our counter.
As people have found out with trolleys.

But the baskets are much closer to a certain Alex…now there’s a basket case!

The interesting thing about those baskets is they are from woolworths (as you can tell from the “fresh food people” on the side) and yet they are in reid…if they had fruit and wings, would that make them “Flying Fruit Baskets”?

So, young Marcus is a ‘basket case’ then…….

Well, young marcus obviously felt that the baskets should be placed there for the convenience of shoppers.

Young Marcus is a mentally ill man that lives in the flats at Reid who is generally responsible for the placement of any objects perched bizarrely on hard to get places in the Reid area.

He does letterbox drops within the local braddon/reid area offering drugs and gay sex to any keen enough to call his mobile.

Sometimes he puts the names and numbers of his neighbours on the flyers instead. He hasn’t made a lot of friends.

I’d like to see someone barcode a wedge tailed eagle chick whilst be watched by an angry mother bird!

That Steve Irwin stuff….

They’d have to be wrapped and barcoded as one item surely…

What id there were 9 eagles in there?

as long as they didnt put more than 8 items in it.

Considering that it is directly over a path, I wouldn’t be keen on it falling with me under it.

I wouldn’t be surprised if some birds use it as a nest. It’s a three layer bed after all!

Thumper Thumper 7:55 am 24 Aug 05

That’s kind of cool, in a weird sort of way…

I wonder if a couple of wedge tailed eagles may find it appealing as a nest?

That would be seriously cool, unless it fell off, which would not be…..

For the record the photographers name is Samuel Gordon-Stewart!

And the baskets are still there if you feel like touristing the area.
