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. :-(

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....

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.

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.
