Old Citroën lorry

First of all I want to say a BIG thank you for the supportive comments made on yesterday's Blip. I feel I probably said a tad too much in reply to each of you, so I hope you don't mind, but I have decided to remove my replies to your comments.

Since yesterday I've not been feeling brilliant... Too sensitive, me.

Even so, today is nice and sunny - brilliant clear blue skies and thankfully not as hot as this time last week.

Today I've taken a photo of an old Citroën lorry, which has sat abandoned for as long as I've known our French village, to the rear of our house. So 23 years then.

When I moved here, there were a few market garden businesses in the village. Two of them were behind our place and now one is left - where this lorry is parked. The rest gave up the ghost and sold land for property development. As a result to the left of this photo we now have a housing estate. Where before there were greenhouses and a barn.

I often wonder what will become of this truck. Probably beyond saving. Unfortunately this is the only angle where I can get a decent photo of it. If I go into the lane between the truck and our garden wall, you can't see it!
