With a Bang! We had our usual 4th of July get together with friends in front of our house. My husband volunteers at the local fireworks booth every year and he gets free fireworks to take home. Our city is one of only 2 in the surrounding area that allows the “Safe and Sane” fireworks to be used in front of your own house. We had a pretty good show if I do say so myself.
And then there were the “illegals” which seemed to be much more prevalent this year, even though there is a fine of $1000 if you are caught.
It almost reminded me of the block parties we used to have when I was growing up. All the neighbors would come to our house and shoot their fireworks off in the street and then we’d watch the sponsored fireworks go off up on the hill. When we were first married my husband promised to show me fireworks every year and he hasn’t disappointed in the last 36 years, including the time we climbed out the bathroom window of the apartment we were living in and sat on the roof to watch the city show. Ah, sweet memories. Hope you all had a good 4th too! Let’s see what the rest of July can bring.
