My Little Town Tuesday: Shoot 'Em Up
Last week an insurance adjuster was out to check out some hail damage to our roof.
He didn't find any significant haiil damage, but in the course of his investigations, he did find this little beauty embedded in our shingles.
In case you can't tell, it's a .30 millimeter bullet.
Why did I have a bullet in my roof?
In My Little Town, we have this charming custom: on New Year's Eve, everyone shoots off their guns into the night sky to welcome in the coming year.
And, since what goes up must come down, these missiles eventually make their way back to earth. Unless, of course, they're stopped by something like a roof.
Or someone's head.
Riverside. Gotta love it.
