The location was in front of my house in Beltsville, Maryland.
The " Take It ! " was the shock of finding a couch having been dumped in front of my house.
After getting over the initial impact of the presence of this unwelcome visitor - I took a moment to record the incident via my camera. The couch was not in very good shape as had a very
serious " precondition " - having withstood the trial of time in who knows what kind of household setting. I contemplated having an interview with the couch ( as a sort of role reversal )
but true to the code of couchdom - there was complete silence - no secrets were revealed - lol.
Imagine - if that couch could talk. Oh what stories it could tell. Probably multiple generational revealing's that could make anyone gasp!
In a few weeks some unknown picked it up - and it is gone.
In the time it was here - it was treated with respect - and here is hoping it went on to a decent end.

I cannot help but think - had someone given it some "Blanket Coverage" it could have gone one for more years of useful service.

When I was 20 and got my first apartment I furnished my home with furniture people had left out like this.

Putting it next to a stop sign is a pretty good idea. Lets people give it a good look and decide if they want it.

Boy I wish I lived near you, I'm in the market for an old couch.
