Jigger Pick

On my way to work I walk past a primary school. Most days there is a group of women, often the same ones, standing talking outside the gate. Sometimes, one or two lollypop ladies are there too. On Tuesday last week, when I walked past, they where standing around the gate as usual, with a lollypop lady and, unusually, a postman. The presence of the postman is not what made this day memorable though. The gate was open, and I had to walk in the 2 feet or so of pavement between it and the chatting group. Standing in the gateway was a man, using a Jigger Pick to break up the playground.
