  1. Crikey! As soon as I posted this the ‘suggested tags’ asked if I wanted to add the following tags to this post; vacation, travel, libya, politics. No, no, no and no!!! Eeeek! 🙂

    • They are very funny 🙂 They had a friend over tonight and the three of them were so full of excited hope that something like that would happen to them, it was hilarious. Little boys are so much fun!

  2. oh yeah, gotta love the sugessted tags, mina always have vacation and travel… WTH?! Love the line “…Possible death was probably not what that person expected to find amongst the exhibits!..” oh and boys and their excited hope.. love it 🙂

    • Boys are so funny with the things that get them excited aren’t they? We all know that not much changes when they get older either 😉

    • Thank you so much! 😀 It is so good to see that other people enjoy this weird stuff too, the world is a very funny place 🙂

  3. As you say: there is an inexhaustible supply of old war bombs just knocking about. Just this year in Britain a three year old found a WW2 hand grenade whilst taking part in an Easter egg hunt!

    • There is, isn’t there. My kids live in eternal hope! 🙂 I remember that news item about the kid thinking a grenade was an easter egg, it made my day! Not the parents day though, obviously. 😉

  4. It’s kind of fun reading this kind of thing after the fact but I’m feeling a bit peeved that a museum could be so negligent for god knows how long. I mean, seriously? That bomb is almost one hundred years old and no-one noticed it was live until now????

    • Negligent, but kind of exciting. Just imagine what new discovery could be around the corner if there are bombs in the museum today!
      I expect people looked at that bomb over the years and though ‘gee that looks real’. I guess it would take a person who actually knew what they were looking for to identify whether or not it was actually dangerous.
