Happy Fourth of July!

I hope everyone is having a safe and happy holiday.  Mine has been a bit ho hum, but that's okay.  I didn't really feel like celebrating anyway.  I do miss shooting fireworks off, and haven't done that in years.  I miss the bottle rocket and roman candle wars of my youth, although I'm surprised no one lost a finger, or an eye, or whatever!  Heh...  I think the worst was a slightly burnt finger when a black cat firecracker went off in my hand.

Anyway, have a good one, and if you've got some, shoot off a bottle rocket for me! Just do it safely.


  1. I'm relaxing and trying not to do much of anything today. Hopefully no one will accidentally burn the state down. We need some rain. :)

    You have a good 4th.

  2. I hear you, man. Not much in a celebratory mood, either. It's a tough time for so many people and it feels like the stress always bleeds through any attempt at levity.
