Ready! Aim! Fire!

This is the oldest thing I own, I think.

A dang Cannonball….

I found this in a stream (on the way to a bottle site), I spied it from a distance because the rusted crust was glowing bright orange.

At 1st I didn’t have a clue what it could be then it fell out of my hand, hit a rock and a chunk of the rust came away and I could see the smoothness underneath then it clicked.

A dang Cannonball….

From what I know there have been no battles in the area or indeed upstream that included cannon fire but that needs further research.

I could quite easily break away the rest of the crust but I think it adds to the story as it’s on display in my sitting room.

“Hey Tom, WTF is that thing?”
