Bring peanuts and a lawn chair.

Every week Cheap Thrills Rob sends out a list of stuff to do in the Boston area for under $10.

This is the only email that I really want to get and I get cranky when it's late. Sorry CTR, I can't help it, I just get a little bit cranky.

Now I notice stuff to do for under $10. Like watching the police process a crime scene. That's free. And interesting.

Last night there were two shootings: one in front of my house and one a street over. They had the big crime scene truck out, and one car had a great big bullet hole in the driver side door, and there were great ropes of yellow police tape garlands festooning the trees..

Like I said, watching the police process the crime scene was pretty interesting, and free!

Check out the Boston Police Department News for high crime areas and remember to bring your own lawn chair and refreshments. Oh yeah, and probably a bulletproof vest would be a good idea too.

See you there!

Does insurance cover bullet hole damage? Like, say the bullet went straight for the engine, and the car was a total loss, would that be covered? Anyone? Just checking if I should shoot my car to get a new one...maybe those detectives should check out insurance fraud as a possible motive for the rash of violence. See, think outside the box!!

Thanks for the tip, Ms. Von S!
