I hope everyone had a safe and fun 4th of July, and Happy Canada Day (belated).
Our little valley town doesn’t do any public fireworks, you have to drive to Boise to see any, but, we can buy illegal stuff at the booths. You sign a piece of paper saying that you won’t light them off in Idaho….uh huh, suuure they won’t.
We have a bunch of neighbors that love to go all out and buy the big mortars the real stuff every year, so, we sit outside, do our piddly ass ones and watch the good stuff. You listen for the boom and then watch the area the sound came from. It’s probably a better display than if the town actually did something, AND part of the fun is watching the police run around town trying to track down where the big stuff is coming from, and watching the neighbors time it so they (the cops) have no idea, or aren’t in the area when the big stuff goes off.
The next morning our streets and lawn look like a fireworks stand vomited. It’s worth it though, and dontcha just love the smell of gunpowder in the morning? BIG HUGS, Steph
