A is for ABANDONED.
For sure, North AMERICANS live in a throw-AWAY society. As an example. it's not hard to spot old machinery left to rust beside farmers' fields. I suspect this old tractor has been retired for quite a while. Hmmm. I wonder what my neighbours would think if I moved this to my front lawn.
Abandoned homes are rare in these parts, though. Land is very expensive, so usually such an eyesore is quickly torn down and replaced with a zillion-room mansion. Toronto is moving north, east and west so it won't be long.
A farmer still works the land, but I'm guessing he rents the field and has his own barn.
