I heard a rumble outside the window. A quick turn in my swivel chair reveals the busy junction of the A4 teeming with late morning traffic…
and a tank.
Cruising along at an average speed for the A4, a petite military tank complete with helmeted dude at the gun turret, was on it’s merry way outside the flat. The rumbling was an overly dramatic touch as I realised it did not emanate from the war machine, but rather from the street sweeper toodling up the residential road that crosses the A4.
I’ve seen many a strange vehicle on the major road outside the flat;¬†in fact the tank was closely followed by a farm tractor, which seemed odd but not ridiculous. I’ve witnessed steam engines putter and sputter slowly up the road, a posh lorry for sled dogs, and now a rather adorable little tank.
If someone could arrange a hovercraft, troop of Shriners in their little pedal cars, or a llama drive I’d be forever indebted. Let me know when to keep an eye to the window.
