Uncle Len’s Christmas Renovations by Uncle Len, Home Improver
I am taking my inspiration from a highly inventive “deplorable” fellow homeless man in the United States, and will be making my oil-stained shed into a five-star homeless retreat, over the Christmas, or die trying.
The man, living in Los Angeles, lives under an underpass. From discarded junk he has salvaged, he has constructed a makeshift jacuzzi, two porcelain toilets, a bed, couches and refrigerators. He calls his place “Paradise Lane.”
Of course the authorities have dismantled his man cave twice, but he just rebuilds it. A true hero for Uncle Len, he said: “I refuse to let the city beat me down to what they think a homeless person’s profile is.” It is also a lesson we deplorables should all learn, because our civilisation also needs to be rebuilt.
