The children returned to school ton Monday after 2 weeks Spring Break.
At the start of the holiday, my daughter was returning home from Uni and spotted to wee boys, aged around 5 or 6yrs old playing in the park.
They were having a pretend shoot-out, with imaginary guns.

As my daughter passed, one of them turned with his imaginary gun and and shot her at point blank range.
She decided to join in, she clutched her side, staggered forward and pretended to have taken the bullet.
The kids were absolutely horrified, the shooter screamed, burst into tears and ran away!
She feels so bad about it.

There is a footbridge over the A27 at Chichester. A bloke I know was walking across it when he saw his mate in a car below. They had a quick,impromptu play shoot out which resulted in the bloke on the bridge taking an imaginary bullet and clutching his heart.

As he was leaving the bridge an ambulance with lights and sirens pulled up.

Some other motorist had seen him collapse and had called emergency services.

You seem to be surrounded by violence what with your thread about John Smeaton and now your Daughter in a shootout.

I haven't been in Glasgow for many years - Maybe I should stay away for good!!!!
