    I sure miss getting to buy fireworks…it was the high light of my Birthday celebration…I’d love walking up and down looking at all the colorful boxes of great stuff…My Dad would buy one of the boxed specials, and I’d get to have a few dollars to buy what I wanted which was always snakes and sparklers…

    We got a box for 4th of July. The next day I was throwing out all the remains, and found a big one we somehow missed. We used it for New Years.

    Red, don’t get anything that will upset Rover—my Lenny Kravitz the cocker spaniel gets catatonic when he hears things getting blown up!

    “.Buy the rockets and wait until New Year’s. With snow on the ground, the light reflects; a plus is your neighbors can only enviously watch. But, of course you invited them over.

    Chile and coffee on the fireplace/stove, stars above, friends and my critters all around; not too bad for someone who no longer needs a Beamer or "corporate “life”.

    Thought: “corporate life” is an oxymora too: "I don’t have to think, I just have to fit in. In real life this is called “slime”.

    You really put a Chile in the fireplace? Do you baste him with honey to make a Honey Chile?

    My father bought these when were kids. My brother who was 4 at the time found them on top of the dresser and ate them thinking they were candy. I’ll never forget the look on his face when he came out to tell us that they didn’t taste right. We had to have his stomach pumped. Yes he survived to be a pain in the neck another day.

    If we had know that there was a “Collectibles” market for GI Joes I would never have put that M80 in his hand. Or cherry bombs in model boats.

    I watch fireworks only some years; otherwise they get boring. And as a Washingtonian, I get spoiled. But I’ve never seen snake fireworks until just now on YouTube.
    I’ve also never seen a “Buy 1 Get 2 Free” deal.

    Sparklers?? Careful, Red! In New York City, you’d be a terrorist!

    The salesman certainly understands kids.

    If there’s a chance, I hope you get to feeling better.

    When I was in junior high in WW-II, we would make our own fireworks. Try doing that now in the age of paranoia.
