The date: a regular old Saturday morning
The scene: a ninety year old mill house
The occasion: an elderly woman having a yard sale to get rid of her recently deceased brother's stuff
The call: involved local firefighters, law enforcement, bomb squad, etc.
The details: neighbors evacuated and area cleared for quite some time
The problem: Granny had slapped a price tag on a LIVE grenade that Bubba had kept as a memento of his WWII days...and put it out for sale! After all, somebody might give her 50 cents.
Only in our small town, folks. The excitement never ends.
