>I Hate Fireworks
But I hate Fireworks in the hands of Amateurs.
I have lost property, including a car, to Safe and Sane Fireworks.
You can buy semi-professional stuff in my county in Idaho. You know, the kind of stuff that shoots up in the air and explodes.
Mrs. Geezer was once hit in the shoulder by a ‘Mortar’.
We were at the neighbors to see their fireworks display.
The teenagers lit one of these beauties and it tipped over and aimed at all of us sitting in the driveway in lawn chairs. Pretty much like the commercial I saw recently on TV.
It went off and shot the exploding part at us. It hit Mrs. Geezer in the shoulder, bounced off and exploded, setting the blankets on fire.
We don’t go to any more neighborhood fireworks shows.
The picture shows the neighbor pulling a disker with his tractor. He’s cutting a fire break around his 100 acre field. You can see that he has already graded a smooth area around the fence line.
