Fireworks are ILLEGAL in this state, motherfuckers.  Also, I am allergic to fire.  Please to be stopping with the bottlerockets, like now.

(not even a little bit) Cordially,

The bitch at #139.

I wonder if my Laurel could loan you his M1 Abrams from "work"...

They aren't illegal here so I am sure we will be hearing a bunch tonight. I hope we don't have any stupid drunks who try to fire them off on our property.

That's the problem; we're so close to the border. :-(

Assholes with fireworks...yes ma'am yes they are asses. We should smite them. Smite them all.

I just wish the red necks in my neck of the woods would stop thinking that they were oh so sexy by reving their engines so freaking loud down the road that is steps away from my front door.

Sorry about your penis you dumb ass.

Idiots = fire pretty...oooh *eyeroll*

There're some idiots behind our house who are also shooting bottle rockets periodically. And we're surrounded by trees and dry brush. I hope they get their $500 fine...

At least they're not shooting the mortars they were shooting last year. Yet.

Hi! I don't know you. Who are you? :-)

Guess I won't mention the "watermelon incident" from when my friends and I were 'young and dumb' then....
tashabear From: tashabear Date: July 4th, 2006 04:45 am (UTC) (base camp)
Ah, but watermelon would make it not so fiery. (The house are REALLY close together -- fire would be Bad.)

Our local illegal fireworks guy is in jail having failed to raise his $800k bail, and is on trial for nine felony counts... remember the exploding house incident last March?

Well, it's quieted down since I posted. It just that the man who married my husband and I, a dear friend, is a Vietnam vet, and can't watch fireworks anymore. I wonder now what hijinks like these must be doing to the veterans in the area.

I like the looks of fireworks, but hate being right up close to them, to experience the booming & crashing sounds. Ick.

So, I'm avoiding the crowded city show in Evansville tonight. To the consternation of a few of my friends, who think I'm just being a wuss.

And? Indiana is stupid, and recently made fireworks legal, as long as they're lit on your own property (or have permission from the landowner).

So I anticipate nervous dogs again tonight. Stupid neighbors.

Not as stupid as yours, certainly.

Oh, and sucketh muchly of that self-inflated braggart. This is why I pay very little attention to pointy hats and will likely never be in anyone's inner circle. I don't do tact when annoyed.
tashabear From: tashabear Date: July 4th, 2006 05:46 pm (UTC) (base camp)
I like the booms -- I like it when I can feel it in my chest. I'd have gone into artillery if I'd been male.

As for "pointy hats" -- the good ones are not braggarts. The person to whom I refer is not even a peer of any flavor. Many of my best friends are at least landless barons/baronesses, and many more are royal peers. My Laurel is currently Queen of the East. I think I have developed a very low annoyance point, to where most things are pretty much moquito buzzes in my ear, and so beneath my notice. It's a very useful skill.

during the 4th, in nahant, with something like 11-15 officers in a 1x1 mile area...

there were dozens of people setting off fireworks, while the officers stood around talked, smoked cigars, drank [coffee?] and soda and generally ignored the "merry making".

they DID look sternly at anyone they thought wasn't a landed member of the community, and were it not that walked directly onto private property and into a house later, i think one of them would have wanted to talk to "the long haired weirdo". being a white male these days isn't all it's cracked up to be. feh.
