Eugene the jeep

The little person told me that there was an old abandoned American jeep in the neighbourhood so we decided to go and see it on this evening’s walk. As we were walking, the little person told me that although everyone calls these military cars ‘jeeps’ their real name is Willys MB. Soldiers nicknamed them jeep after Eugene the Jeep, a character in the Popeye cartoons.

Sure enough, we found Eugene.

The little person did not know how long it had been there but even I could see that it hadn’t been driven in a long time. The tall person said that it could be very old, possibly dating back to the Second World War.

I think at the very least it needs new tyres!
