    Our little hamlet does a display every year, from the town beach which happens to be right across the river from our yard. So, our little dock is about the best seat in the house. That half-hour is about all the fireworks I need for the year.

    The yahoos setting them off in their yards at all hours of the day and night are just annoying.

    Edit: It just got dark here, and the yahoos are out in full force.

    Liked them as a kid but never had much use for them as an adult. These days I absolutley hate them because my dog is terrified of them.

    Controlled displays by professionals, sure, but the public in general? Too much buffoonary! Besides, most of the general public can get pales after spending 6 years in the Army! I done blowed up stuff good by then! Ain't dat right cuzzins? :D

    Here in Outer Redneckia it is essential to put on a big display in your backyard.

    I spoke too soon, sounds like Detroit on a Friday night around here. I even have crap bouncing off my roof from the neighbors behind me.

    Worst part is that many people have tomorrow off....I have to be at work by 7.

    Last year the street behind me (a bunch of rentals) had a fireworks “war”. People from all over the area shooting shooting stuff at each other. My back windows look over this street. It looked like a war zone. Dangerous and ridiculous. No sign of it this year. They move it around every year so the sheriffs department has a hard time shutting it down. Although they were aware of it last year and did nothing about it.
