I just loaded up on Sparklers and smoke bombs! It will be the best fireworks show ever!

I used to buy fireworks, but not anymore. Way too expensive as far as I'm concerned. I sit back and watch other people's shows.

No, we have dogs that get freaked out by fireworks. Last year I found our 15 year old lab mix hiding in the bathtub behind the shower curtain during the neighborhood 4th of July fireworks show.

Can't buy fireworks that shoot into the air here in AZ.

A couple years ago I got some while on a road trip in Washington and Nevada grin2

I'm thinking I'll run up to Nevada in 2 weeks....

Noooo! They are not allowed here. Too many fires get started from them. Plus our dog freaks out.

Couldn't find mine in the dark closet, so I lit a match.....

Oh am I in violation of posting a non-pertinent response?

SERIOUSLY: The single small cracker which went off in my hand as a child had a startlingly sobering effect.

No damage but I haven't touched them since. I wouldn't dream of denying anyone that same educational experience.

And total congrats to the St Louis Blues!

Fireworks can blow your head off. Look at this Government video:

Yeah, if your head/hand happens to be made out of styrofoam. Regardless they're still dangerous, there's always many injuries reported each year around the 4th.

Even some NFL players have blown up bits of their hands and then couldn't play.

We load up the pontoon at our cabin and watch just about everyone else around the lake put on a display. July 4th basically turns into a war zone up north.
