Last night was kinda like the the 4oJ for me... went to Parental units house and collectively we blew about 100$...

good times.

Tonight we are going to Shawnee Mission Parkway for an action packed 15-20 minutes of oooh-aaahh.

EDIT:

Just got home from a BBQ at dad's. As soon as I hear the fireworks start, I'll probably grab a beer and a chair and sit out on my patio. I'm in Springfield, but outside city limits. Had quite a fews shows last night. I figure tonight to be even better. Happy 4th everyone.

There is a fireworks display about 1/4 mile away from my house.......at dusk, I'll step out the back door, crack a beer and sit on the patio.

Front row seating from my back porch.

Nowhere, at 49 and with my kids all being in their 20s really what is the point, it is not like we will see something new.

I probably will tune into the Boston Pops and enjoy the music while watching their display in the harbor.

I just sat ouside for 45 minutes watching 4 unsupervised 7-10 yr old kids throwing bottle rockets directly at each other. While they were busy play "betcha can't hit me" the "adults" (drinking and looking to be in their early 20's at the oldest) were setting off the big fireworks in the road. I thought about calling the cops, but I just figured I'd keep an eye on them from afar and have my phone handy to dial 911 if needed. I think they ran out though. We live about 50 yards away from a fireworks stand. I think they went to beg the older kids to go buy more. Ugh!

Other than playing babysitter from a distance, I watched several little displays going on around me. I can still hear them going off.

Sorry. I'm not very patriotic. Probably because I wasn't born in this country and I was taught not to participate in patriotism.

But I loved Independence Day and The Patriot.

wow. I listened to Iowanian and Skip... because I live on a high hill... and I saw 6 different huge fireworks displays... heh. Near 95th and Metcalf... on a huge hill.

Awesome. Rep for you two for inspiring my laziness, it turned out much better this way.

Didn't have to go anywhere. A batch of insurgents brought the fireworks to us. Nobody hurt though on the "good guys" side, so all in all it was a good time had by all (except the insurgents).

We're lucky though, we get fireworks often, ya'll only get them around the 4th.

We got the cops called on us. For good reason, too, as our mad scientist creations were essentially weapons grade explosives. One of which we set off in someone's front yard. (They deserved it, though)

In an amazing feat of skill/stupidity paying off, we all escaped/ran away from sucessfully the clutches of the man. Great night.

You live on 95th and Metcalf? That's really close. We need to smoke some sometime this week. I have a little left.

In what country were you born? And when did you come to the US?
