The Pile of hard rubbish where I found my trs80 coco colour computer.

Shortly before moving to Melbourne I found a pile of hard rubbish.  It was a kind of magical pile of hard rubbish.

In it I found:

• A painting of some sailboats on a lake in the bush

• A green malvern star bicycle

• A radioshack trs80 coco computer

The bicycle got me where I was going for years to come. In Adelaide I kept it in the backyard under a grapevine.

When I locked the bike up in the city I found that there were ants crawling on it after work each day.  Maybe they were eating grape matter!

When I moved to Melbourne I found that a colony of ants had stowed away in the bike’s kickstand so I named the bike Uncle Milton.  When I was a kid I had an Uncle Milton brand ant farm.  The ant farm was green and full of ants, just like my bike.
