Fireworks. Something that used to brighten my world as a child..literally. Wherever, however, we used to line up the towns to enjoy each of their displays.

Huge shows with friends and family afterwards. Back then, the 'good stuff' was illegal here and a few guys used to make runs down south to stock up for the big weekend. Nowadays, it's not the same. It's noisy all the time and woefully expensive.

All I can think is *BOOM* "There went twenty bucks." *BANG* "Ohhhp. Someone just set a fifty on fire." *HUGE BANG POP BOOM* "Well, there went someones paycheck!"

If it weren't bad enough that it's concerning that I'm worried about what others spend their money on, I actually get irritated and annoyed hearing them on a weekday or late at night!

Ugh. First world problems from an aging crankster.

We should enjoy celebrating the 4th of July while we can!
The booms only last a few days and then we can sleep after
it's over.

In my neighborhood it's every Fri-Sun evening/night since May and will last until the end of August.

That's fine if you want to be subservient.

It's not really the point of a "pet".

My cats as well.

That isn't a huge bother however as it allows the time needed to trim her nails and brush her. She might as well be feral otherwise.

Living in a City that had a Major Fire (Santa Rosa Ca.) and living around dry fields, I wish People could keep it to the 4th instead of the 2 weeks before to 2 weeks after. Some people seem to not care what the results of their big BOOMS are.
