It has been some time since I set off fireworks on the 4th. Most of the time I sit outside and watch the fireworks the neighbors set off. I can look in any direction and see brilliant light shows I would have missed if I was setting off my own. My neighbors explode the good stuff.
Hopefully, when my grandson gets older, we’ll set off our own again. I remember the 4th when I was a kid and how much I enjoyed setting off fireworks and I remember how much my daughter loved it when she was young.
Until then, I’ll keep watching my neighbor’s celebration efforts and cringe when I hear something hit the roof.
