The Nutjobs Down the Road

OR:
The second blog post of 2015, which I hadn’t planned on posting quite so early in the year…
I hope the New Calendar Year has begun auspiciously for you.  Over at my house, we started off the New Year with a bang.
Literally…
It wasn’t our idea.
Someone, we don’t know who, decided the best way to mark this occasion was to fire off something.  We don’t know what.  But it was loud.  Very loud. Loud enough to wake almost everyone in the house (except the dog, who is a hound) from a very deep sleep.  
From the deep, booming noise, it sounded like a piece of artillery.  
We live in a fairly well-developed suburban area, but there’s still a considerable amount of wide-open farmland and I can only guess someone must host a militia or something from time to time.  So, herewith…
(An open letter to my anonymous, but not unnoticed, neighbors)
Howdy!
Look:  Knock it off before you kill someone, possibly even yourself or someone you love.
Seriously.
Also, please re-locate before July or next December at the latest.  
P.S.: I DO support your Second Amendment rights!  
Were the pod people landing?  
Because if they WERE, projectile weapons aren’t gonna actually DO anything, y’know…  
Except maybe tip ’em off to your position…
Love and kisses,
