Fourth of July...???
Yep - in typical Minnesota Fashion, we went from sweltering humid heat yesterday,
To Freezing cold rain today.
At Least we got some of our fireworks lit last night
Yes, It was July 3rd.
If you know my hubby,
and you know me,
the following SAT-type sentence will make perfect sense:
Jerry is to July 4th Fireworks As Jen is to Christmas Music
I have been known to break out the Christmas music as early as September
(okay, there was one year that it has been heard around our general vicinity in July... but I'll stick to the 5th on that one...)
Well, fireworks have been heard around our general vicinity as early as January.
So last night was more like a '4th of July Eve' for Jerry...
ya know... like getting to open a present (or two) on Christmas Eve
He got to light off a firework (or two... or twenty...) on 4th of July Eve.
And for my benefit, He did start out pretty tame
But pretty soon, it was onto the "Wyoming Specials"
the kids loved it
and me? Well, I only screamed a few times...
... except for the one shriek...
when the launcher tipped over and shot a launching firework directly at our neighbors house,
then turned and launched one right at our mailbox
then turned and would have launched one right into the garage, but it ran out of ammunition
(it was a pretty long shriek)
Yep, 4th of July
Never a dull moment around these parts.
HAPPY 4TH of JULY!!!
