Strange Raindrops

05 Sep

Airsoft pellet on the trailIt rained today – really, really hard. It made awful sounds on my roof. I didn’t like it at all.

When the rain finally stopped I took my person out for a walk. There was lots of water on my trails, but I expected to see that.

What I didn’t expect to see was that thing in the picture. It’s small. So small that my person couldn’t even get her camera to focus on it. But what is it?

I think it’s some strange new kind of raindrop. It doesn’t soak into the ground, and it doesn’t even melt like hail. I’m going to have to investigate this. Raindrops like this could explain why there was so much noise on my roof.

I walked along my trails and I didn’t see any more of those strange raindrops. But since I heard all that pounding on my roof I bet I could find some in my yard.

I got home, and sure enough – look what I found.

A white one – but it looked just like the other one.

About this time something started clicking in my memory. I remember I used to see those – all over my house. I haven’t seen any lately, but I think I’ll put my Detective Dog hat on and see what I can find.

Woo woo! I had to move some file boxes, but here it is – buried in the carpet.

I’m putting my paws around it so you can see what size it is.

But now I have a bigger mystery. How did this strange rain get into my house?

This could be a dangerous quest. When my younger person comes home next time, I’ll have to get him to get his airsoft gun out for extra protection while I investigate.

      Jackie, they are airsoft pellets. When my younger person was younger than he is now they used to be all over my house and yard. I used to get all excited when he got his airsoft gun out.

      Marina, my person had to remind me that my younger person used to shoot these all over the house and yard. They are airsoft pellets. I would always get excited when he shot them out of his airsoft gun.

    At first I thought it was a tennis ball, but it’s a little (A LOT) too small for that. Maybe it’s candy!

      Cupcake, I wish they were candy, but they’re little plastic things that get shot out of airsoft guns. My younger person used to shoot them all over the house and I would get all excited about it.

      Karen, Scratchy doesn’t even care so I have to do all the detective work. My person reminded me that I already knew the answer to this one. My younger person used to shoot these things all over the house with his airsoft gun.

    Airsoft pellets??? and they were all over the yard and you heard them on your roof during the rain storm????
    Thee must have been an army outside…LOL

     
    • Bongo

      September 5, 2012 at 9:47 pm

      Penny, that army must have run out of pellets and run off because I didn’t see them when I went outside. Maybe they were scared that I would give them what for.

    Ok, Bongo, so the airsoft pellets started dancing on the roof and making noise while it was raining…hmm… and I see one pellet between your legs and one wet spot as big as the pellet… Yeah, you’re right, it must be airsoft pellets 😀

     
    • Bongo

      September 6, 2012 at 5:16 pm

      Angels Whisper, I don’t think that was a wet spot. It was a chunk of Scratchy’s fur. He picks it out when he’s shedding and leaves chunks all over the carpet.

    At first I thought that it might be some kind of eggs like insects….BOL! Oh airsoft pellets!!! That sounds fun and many kids in Japan love doing it! I hope those pellets would gather around on their own after playing! Your legs are very long Bongo! Beautiful! 🙂

     
    • Bongo

      September 6, 2012 at 5:19 pm

      Kevin, we used to have airsoft pellets all over the house and yard, but my younger person doesn’t shoot them off anymore. My person caught most of them in the vacuum cleaner (that noisy thing that I love to bark at), but every once in awhile one still shows up.

       
      • eripanwkevin

        September 7, 2012 at 7:40 am

        You love to bark at the vacume cleaner? Me, too! Always bark at it when it’s nisy! 🙂

         
      • Bongo

        September 7, 2012 at 1:59 pm

        Kevin, sometimes my person locks me in her bedroom when she’s about to make that vacuum cleaner get noisy. It’s no fair. It takes all the fun away. So I make sure I shed lots of hair while I’m in there.

      Misaki, I bet your daddy and my younger person would have fun doing airsoft together. I just like the sound the gun makes. I get all excited and start jumping when the gun makes those sounds.

    Don’t even know what an airsoft pellet is but I’d say don’t go eating those things Bongo!

     
    • Bongo

      September 6, 2012 at 5:23 pm

      Diane, they’re little plastic balls that get shot out of airsoft guns. My person says it’s kind of a guy thing – and mostly young guys. They don’t have much smell, so I’m not even interested in trying to eat them. Now the cat treats that get left in the garden – that’s another story.

    Wow, sweet Bongo those are sure tiny things whatever they are. We haven’t seen any of them around here. Hugs and nose kisses

     
    • Bongo

      September 8, 2012 at 12:11 pm

      Chancy and Mumsy, you must not have a lot of boys around there. My person says those are airsoft pellets that get shot out of airsoft guns.

       
      • Chancy and Mumsy

        September 8, 2012 at 2:19 pm

        No sweet Bongo we are old folk and most of our neighbors are also. None of the grands have those airsoft guns so we have never seen those pellets before.

    Ginger says get that airsoft gun out when scratchy eats and shoot scratchy and eat scratchy’s food! muwahahahahahahha….. better go here comes the old guy…hehehe

     
    • Bongo

      September 9, 2012 at 10:30 pm

      Ginger, that’s a great idea. Actually I think my younger person has shot it at Scratchy because my person has found those pellets on top of the kitchen cabinets where Scratchy likes to hang out.

    Hey Bongo, Jet here.

    Great detecting, Dude! I vote on sniffing it and then I think you will be ready to make a determination…

     
    • Bongo

      September 9, 2012 at 10:36 pm

      Hey Jet, it hardly has any smell at all. I guess I need my younger person’s help on this one.

    At first I tought they were iced raindrops, but you did find it out. Take care of those! One of my cats (or maybe, my catlords?) was shooted once and he still have a scar in the place were he got it… it for sure is dangerous.

     
    • Bongo

      September 10, 2012 at 12:19 pm

      YouKai, fortunately my younger person doesn’t play with those much any more. I used to get really excited when he got out his airsoft gun and I got shot a few times but it didn’t hurt much because my hair protected me.

      Bassa, those aliens seem to be wreaking havoc on this place. I’d better go out and give them what for.
