Just wondered if anyone will be doing fireworks this year. There is a city ordinance here that forbids fireworks in the city limits, but every year we manage to see a spectacular fireworks show from our neighbors
What? Fireworks? You mean that suspicious looking bag in my garage? No those aren't fireworks...they're, um, uh... yeah, ok, their fireworks.
Last year about this time, we were "gifted" a huge back of fireworks. We blew some off last New Year's and maybe we'll use up the rest this year. They're nothing spectacular, just little stuff. We used to have kids who lived in a rental house down the street and 4th of July two years ago, we and the neighbors next door got them all $500 tickets for blowing off fireworks (I normally don't call the cops, but when I complained that they were doing this at 5 am, the kid threw a lit firework at me...so I got em busted ) So the next Christmas, another neighbor gave us the fireworks as a joke.
I need to get rid of them, I hate having them sitting around. God forbid, something happens and they explode! Thanks for reminding me they were there. Maybe I should re-gift them back to the neighbor who gave them to us!
We just do sparklers for the kids because I really can't stand to literally blow money up on fireworks. Our neighbors tend to spend a lot on fireworks so i have taught my kids to just enjoy their show!
