Bobby had begun the job by cutting into the soffit with an electric saw. Then, he took a crowbar to it and started levering it out of place. The panels cracked away easily. So far, so good, then. However, Bobby had now created a situation that demanded immediate attention.
By tearing a hole in the kitchen ceiling, Bobby had exposed part of the attic above. Somewhat puzzlingly, moreover, there appeared to be a number of objects buried beneath the insulation. In fact, he was alerted to the cache when something fell out and hit him.
“Bobby really wanted to tear down the soffit at 8 o’clock at night, and I couldn’t stop him,” Megan wrote in a Facebook post in June 2017. “Then, this 1940-50s genuine alligator purse from Cuba fell out of the ceiling… so not a bad night after all!”
