This is the 'dining table' at an Uncle's house. Over the years, it has become a repository for everything he believes is important 'at the moment' - it contains newspapers, magazines, leaflets, fliers, assorted stationery, and many of Uncle's lost possessions. Right now, his address book - the hard copy, not the electronic kind - is missing, and we think it's somewhere there, under the debris. The Spouse clears it every once in a while but it's back to square one in no time!
I caught sight of this tangle of typewriter ribbon in the dustbin near the dining table. I thought its form, and the red and black made a striking picture against the greens and other pastels inside the dustbin. You can see the typewriter in use in the above two pictures.
I should have titled this picture Bless This Mess!
