Well, I had my fun little hour of Fire Fun. The entertainment started as I was driving home from the fireworks places, and saw a figure in the road in front of me. Some girl had been in the middle of the freakin ROAD in pitch black darkness setting off fireworks! No lights, nothing! I came damn close to hitting her! So, feeling a bit "I know what you ALMOST did last summer"-ish, I came home, grabbed some soda and went out to live out my little pyro fantasies. Everything was fine, unil one particularly menacing thing decided to start "When Fireworks Attack!", and rather than shooting balls of, stuff? up into the air, it flipped over and started shooting them AT ME!! As I saw one fly right past me, I took off, seeing one fly towards my truck as I went. Now, of course I'm thinking "Oh, that's just great. Lets shoot balls of fire into a truck bed full of explosive stuff!" I went back to inspect the scene, and found a paper bag that had been in the back of my truck now had a BIG hole in it! Photos coming soon ;-)

I still can't help but think back to a few years ago when everyone who lived in my neighborhood would get together for a huge party on this day, and most people would bring literally *hundreds* of dollars worth of fireworks, and we would be out there alll night.. or until the beer ran out.

Goodness, gracious, great balls of fire!
