Missed The Target

[sunday photo fiction]

My card says “No Odd Job Is Too Small”. So when received a call about removing a pedestal that used to hold a potted tree, I agreed to take a look, no promises. The thing looked a couple feet tall, and about the same across. If it could be broken into smaller pieces it would be an easy task to I took the job.

Now how to break it up. I have a close friend that is a Diamond Cutter. He shold know just where to strike this to break it into smithereens. He took a look and not only told me where to strike a blow, but how much force would be needed.

This thing was in front of a 4 story mansion, so using my friend’s suggestion, I did the math. A huge stone dropped from the roof would do the trick, then I’d only have to sweep up the shards.

3-180-11-november-6th-2016The magic day was here. I lugged a huge stone up to the roof, took sights with my laser-scope and was ready. Seconds after I dropped the stone an unexpected wind came up. Darned if it didn’t blow that stone off it’s intended target.

The result, only a chipped corner. And I have to start all over again.
