Chinese Lantern

An odd object arrived uninvited in the yard, consisting of a thin wooden hoop and a fabric, almost paper, envelope.

I assume that it was either a very fragile windsock or one of those Chinese Lanterns that drift across the sky at Haloween, before settling in a field and burning a farmer's crop to ashes.

Roy subdued it anyhow, in case it constituted a threat.
