Sometimes just sitting in the yard can get you in trouble!
Hopefully, nothing like this will ever happen to us while we are sitting on the patio. Not a good way to start the day with your coffee!
I found this story in the Houston Chronicle and because of the subject matter, I thought I would share it!

SEQUIM, Wash. — A man was sitting in his back yard near Sequim when he felt a pain in his nose and it started bleeding.
The Clallam County sheriff's office says the man apparently was hit by a stray shot Saturday from people shooting at clay pigeons with a .22-caliber weapon a half-mile away.
Sgt. John Keegan told the Peninsula Daily News the bullet came down at a steep angle and hit the top of the man's nose. Medics took him to Olympic Medical Center on Port Angeles where he was treated and released.
Investigators talked to a witness who had seen a woman and two men shooting clay pigeons in a field about a half-mile from the victims home, which was hidden by trees.
Guess we are going to have to start wearing a safety helmet while we have our morning coffee! Why don't we get a fresh cup and sit outside for a bit? I'm willing to take a chance if you are!
