No fireworks here.   Nearly all Cities and Counties have outlawed them.    We have "snitch" networks so you can report your neighbors to authorities by phone, text, or online.    Just one more infringement on the rights of the people.

When fireworks are outlawed then only Outlaws will have fireworks.....

Here in MO. we can have just about any kind of fireworks.

And, I can buy there all year around. Yippy!

I don't like those Jumping Jacks. They like look fire crackers. They go all over the place. I had them go flying right by my face!

No fireworks allowed in the city limits here. We go to my brother's house whose backyard is literally right under where his village shoots off the fireworks...if the wind is right, many times the glowing embers will drift down right in your face. It's like being there.

They're legal here and I still have some left from last year but I probably won't be shooting any since my dog is scared of them.

Putting a new air filter in the AC-Heat outside. I put a new one in every month.

Looks like another HOT day today.

Oh, I got stun by a wasp last night in my left arm. Counldn't tell if it was a yellow or red jacket...I was running and flapping around 100 mph. My arm sure is still sore right now.

As soon as Kimmy comes home, we are going to Boomland in Benton, MO. to buy a few fireworks.

Just spent the day looking at houses - we sold the farm over the weekend and are downsizing to a bungalow in town.

Back to fireworks.... private use is illegal here, with most communities having fireworks displays. However, there are several fireworks stores in the State. My daughter lives in a small city near us and a police officer shoots off fireworks in his yard! And, the police chief is usually in attendance.

I might light off a firecracker or two,  :) or maybe even shoot a gun.   ])M Or both.  {_K

Until then, I'll keep on chasing the 13 Colonies. I have 10 colonies with three more to go, and three bonus stations to go. Hopefully I'll get a clean sweep.  ])M In between all of that, I'll keep working on the pyrography project I'm working on.   :9)

Eventually, along with fireworks, they’ll just try to outlaw the 4th altogether.  It’s an expression of nationalism (the new N-word) and like the Betsy Ross flag makes some “Americans” feel uncomfortable, marginalized and threatened.
