So we celebrated the 4th of July in our own backyard with our own private fireworks show. Well, it wasn't really OUR show, it was the neighbor about half a block down. Every year that guy must spend thousands of dollars on fireworks - and I'm talking about the big ones, not the little dinky ones. So we sat and watched and cheered for him as we sat around our fire pit in comfy cushioned patio furniture. It certainly beat fighting the crowds at the Expo center, and the grand finale was just as good.
So here's to you, neighbor guy. Thanks for giving us a great 4th!
