Minor mystery here this morning. Got me wondering and the cats spooked to high heaven.
I went out for my wake-up smoke and discovered a LOT of blood on the front porch. A lot. No evidence of where it came from, why it's there...
No corpse lying around that I'm able to find in the dark sporting a half-inch hole in the forehead and two in the chest, so I'm reasonably certain I didn't get up during the night, shoot a prowler, and casually go back to bed to deal with this after daybreak.
I slept fairly soundly and didn't hear anything during the nightl. The security camera didn't pick up any noise. But somewhere out there in the world there's a warm-blooded creature with a lot less of it circulating around inside him than he had yesterday.
Strange way to start a day.
