Minnesotans cannot purchase or use exploding fireworks: no firecrackers, bottle rockets, missiles, roman candles, or mortars and shells. Acceptable, as they have been, are sparklers, cones and tubes that emit sparks, and novelty items like snakes and party poppers.
Then why am I hearing various booms…that are not party poppers. People down on the lake are busy. We have another couple of nights to endure before they run out of exploding supplies. I hope they don’t start any fires or blow any body parts off.
We make sure that Chance is walked before dark…so he can go hide by the bathroom door or under my feet.
I bet the wildlife on the lake think the world is coming to an end.
We used to have a neighbor that had a cannon, the 4th of July was his day. Various really big booms happened throughout the day. He and his wife moved into an apartment in town…I wonder what he did with his cannon? After all the little noise one could have some fun with a really big noise IF she had a cannon. (She would probably end up in jail.)
As I write this it sounds like WW3 down on the lake. Maybe it will rain.
I can hope…we don’t have any skeeters to chase the people indoors.
I must be a party pooper.
