Age Rating:

A gas leak, a bunch of flowers tied to a lamp post and two days later he was dead.

A husband killed on the road, then a bunch of flowers and a card tied to a lamp post with all the emotion and sentiment that evokes. But the next day they have been torn down and replaced by another person's flowers and card.

Gary H Pendleton walks this route every day, to and from work. He is moved by the flowers and card tied to the lamp post and then shocked by 'the other woman's' blatant and indecent act in tearing down the wife's flowers and replacing with her own tribute. Gary takes a day off work and waits by the the lamp post to accost the' other woman. But all is not as it seems and further tragedy ensues.
