Shots In The Dark [Apr. 11th, 2016|09:59 am]
Tony Grist
Someone not so very far away was firing a gun at irregular intervals after dark last night.  I struggle to frame a scenario that makes sense of this but my best guess is the grown-up kids of the family at the big house were having a jolly party and had found the keys to dad's gun cabinet. If this were an urban environment it'd be a matter for the police; as it is, it's just an everday story of country folk.

Maybe it was an enactment of Midsummer Murders.

Murder rate round here isn't anything like as high as Midsummer's. West Country folk just seem to have this homicidal streak.

Stick to the good Kentish beer, I say, and lay off the cider- that's the way to keep things sweet.

When we here shots in the dark round here, I just assume it's someone out lamping.

I suppose that could be going on here. I'm not much of a countryman.

Reminds me of living in Texas.

We're not a gun-owning culture but if you live in the country and can make a case for needing to hunt or shoot crows it's not hard to get a licence.

That happens in my neighborhooid every so often and it always freaks me out. Gawd, I despise guns!
