Lucky escape...The story I was told by a couple of the older farm workers when I was a boy is that they were singling (hoeing) sugar beet one day (20 or 30 years before) in the field outside my house and a pebble size stone hit the ground close to them, from no where and it fizzled and hissed for a few moments and then cooled down. There would be a gang of 6 or 8 who witnessed it, nobody picked it up and pocketed it, they just left it and carried on. The chance of this being witnessed must have been / still is, billions to one.
What sort of guns do they use round your wayI was outside late one evening last year making some charcoal. My place isn't particularly remote but it is a sparsely populated area so very quiet and also quite dark too.
As I stood there I heard something come whistling through the air very close by. Whatever it was landed in the next field with a thud.
I didn't see anything like streaks of fire or hear anything like a gunshot. It came in at about 45 degrees and from the sound I would say it was tumbling and half housebrick size, travelling jolly quick.
No idea what it was or where it had come from. Only two things I can come up with are bullet tumbling on the end of its trajectory or meteorite.
