I might shoot back next time...

Folks, I was on my back deck this morning when a shot was fired from a high powered rifle
right beside my house! I just about jumped over the house! I am a big fraidy cat as I have told you before. I did run thru my house to the front and spotted a strange car heading out of sight down my little back road. I just thought it was someone shooting from the road at a turkey in the neighbors cow pasture. I did not see a turkey there this morning but they have been spotted there in the past.

I thought I should call the neighbor and let him know just incase they had hit his cattle, then he would at least know what kinda car they were driving. I called the neighbors office and his secretary said he was not in but she would relay the message to him. This lady is also the secretary for the company that my husband works for and I know her well.

I never went out and checked on anything around my house and garage cause I just thought it was an illegal hunter. Then this afternoon the secretary called me back to let me know that she heard of a similar shooting that was on the local news a couple days ago where there were 3 houses and several cars shot. The shots came from the road too. This happened about 15 miles from my house. Whaaaaattttt?????

I reported to the authorities what I knew and the investigator came out to question me and have a look around. Of course by the time he got here it was raining buckets full and he didn't go check on anything of mine. Dearest hubby came home and laughed at me!!!!! He said he wasn't getting wet to go look out there either........I think he is a fraidy cat too!!!!! He will find out if they shot his truck when he leaves for work tomorrow morning. He drove his dump truck today so he could bring me a load of mulch home, so his pickup was right beside the house during this shooting. Boy oh boy my mind can wander in times like these!! I can get into so much trouble all by myself minding my own business!!

So sad that people have to act this way. I hope everything you own is ok.

I hope everything is okay! I think I'd shoot back too. It might make them think twice about shooting around your house!

We have had cattle shot right in their track before. It always bothers me when I hear gunshots nearby but it isn't a rare thing 'round these parts. I hate anyone has to deal with this.

Have a beautiful day filled with sunny blessings!!!
