We enjoyed our local firework display Saturday night. I put my camera on nighttime and took about 100 pictures. Came home with some good ones! (Especially that last one!)

But, I decided this year that I am getting too old for this. (Or sick of the hassle, or...whatever) Drive downtown, find a place to park, set up lawn chairs, sit in the parking lot, spray down for bugs, sweat for a few hours to OOOOH and AAHHHHH for 1/2 hour, then get back in the car and fight with 400 others to get out and on the road to get home.

Maybe I will feel different when we have grandchildren someday, but next year... I say we stay at the in-laws, have a barbecue, play in the pool, and listen to the firecrackers the neighbors set off!

  1. I think I'm with you on this one. We could see fireworks in three counties as we came home from Lake Placid after the concert this year. I know I'll remember all the beautiful, colorful displays, but for now, I'm still scratching my 'squito bites! I'd rather stay inside the screen enclosure and let them eat on someone else!
