The children were nestled all snug in their beds

I had one of those dreams last night where I heard something that was part of my dream, but it was actually happening outside. I heard this shot, and it sort of woke me up. I thought at first it was part of my dream, because g-man was still sleeping.

Then I heard it again. It sounded like someone was either setting off a bomb or cannon or something like that. It was so freakin’ loud that I heard my neighbors upstairs wake up. We have train tracks behind our development that rarely get used by cargo trains. So at 3:30 am I’m wondering all sorts of things. Like did someone blow something up? Did a train derail? Did someone just kill someone? Mind you, we live in a pretty quiet neighborhood, that’s relatively safe, but you just never know.

I feel a Stand By Me moment coming on. Anyone with me?

After all that, I’m sure renting my house doesn’t sound quite so bad, eh? *grin*

Since it was your idea, you get to play Vern Tessio, Statia.

Hey, if I lived anywhere even remotely near PA, I’d be up for following tracks, getting dined upon by leeches (although not “down there”) and out-running a train with ya!

Did you ever find out what happened?
