    Do You Want to Own a Cannon?

    http://www.thefield.co.uk/features/d...a-cannon-22114

    “Why on earth do you want a cannon?” my wife asked when I explained that I had spotted the sweetest little example, just looking for a new home, in a local antiques shop. Married to an avid collector of ancient armour and weaponry, she is fairly inured to bits of what she deems “rusty metal” occasionally being snuck into the house. However, a 19th-century working naval cannon? Little chance of slipping that in undetected; none at all of keeping it hidden. Anyway, why would I? In the world of big boys’ toys, if you’ve got cannon, flaunt it.

    Not just yes, but............................HELL YES!

    I would have too much fun with a cannon, I could even get a gun crew up for target practice.
    Life is like a fire hydrant- sometimes you help people put out their fires, but most of the time you just get peed on by every dog in the neighborhood.
