Chain hand pump

Historic chain hand-pump for water, now infested by lichens.

Weather iffy morning, by prediction, became a fine working day. This is an important difference to those working out-of-doors.

The jinx came later, via cell call, as I was piloting homeward. My heart grieves for a suddenly-gone loved-one and those nearest and dearest.

    Oh no…..I’m so sorry!

    The lichens tell the tale of how oft this particular mechanism is used eh?

    Thanks. And yes, the pump is a decorative feature in a garden….
