A day off with pay and I get to blow up stuff. Namely, illegal fireworks from Indiana. That's the nice thing about living on the KY/ IN border. Oh, and maybe some fire breathing.

I don't want to die without any scars.

Well, it's raining right now and the forecast calls for rain through midnight so we'll see. It probably won't happen but if it does I will post up.

Do it under the protective cover at the Fireworks-sales stand! Maybe they'll give you a free RomanCandle.. What could possibly go wrong?

Well, no fire breathing this year. The fireworks were good though. The party host spent a ton of money on fireworks. There were lots of kids there and they all had a good time as well so I guess that's all that matters.

I don't want to die without any scars.

Re: What does July 4 mean to you?

Normally, I love a good fireworks display, symbolic of "The rocket's red glare" and all that, but this year, I'm exhausted, and a quiet weekend at home is my biggest plan.

They've been lighting off fireworks in my (neighbor)hood for about two weeks now. Each night it's worse. My poor dog spends the entire time huddled at my feet. I fear for tonight. Poor girl.

I don't want to die without any scars.
