strange things you see!

A pair of socks lying on the road side!

How the heck did they come to be there!

I passed this item yesterday on a cycle run out on a lonely stretch of road far from anywhere.

The mind boggles with thoughts and reasons as to why an item like this could possibly be lying there.

But thinking back this is not the only puzzling object to be thus seen. shoes or footware (usually one foot ) i encounter.
I recall a womans Bra. A pair of Knickers, hanging high up in a tree, a claw hammer. a measuring tape, I could go on!

A pair of clear lenses from some bike glasses. Both in good shape. No frames around, just the lenses. I can only assume someone stopped to swap them and missed their pockets.

in highschool my friends would cruise around... i had two friends that would always ride in the back seat.... and you better not have anything within reach that you wanted to keep!

they'd roll down the window and throw anything they could find out the window. they'd be sneaky about it too, you wouldn't know they had done it unless you saw them
