Fourth of July

Much better this year. No rain. No power outage. No plugged toilet. No water running down the hallway ruining the floor. no water dripping into the basement.

This year we had fun, no one "overindulged" and I think everyone had fun. Lot's of big booms and bright lights in the sky. Plus, son-in-laws, and nephews used their "special firecrackers" on one of my trees. There were splinters 30' away.

I think I would have to hurt them...really, really hurt them. LOL

Wow--poor tree. What happened to the pyrotechnic maniacs?

Dad and Mom said...

The tree was already dead. Pine blight is getting all of our pines in KS.

It was destined for firewood during Fall Festival.

It sure seems like a great time! That poor tree...hopefully easier to make firewood though.

Could I hire them to "demo" my daughter's room. It might take dy-no-mite to clean that disaster..

Glad u had a better 4th!

A "normal" 4th of July! That is outstanding! You deserve "normal."
