Last night was loud and smokey and long, but maybe just a little less so than in years past. Folks over here really love their fireworks, but you have to get a permit ahead of time and there's a limit to how many you can buy. I think that has really cut back on the madness, but there are still plenty of people who must be pooling their resources because I'm pretty sure that a lot of the groups I was aware of were blowing up ten times the legal limit.
Buddy (the old, deaf poi dog) slept through it all. Lance was a little nervous, but not so much that I had to give him tranquilizers. He stuck so close to me that he kept tripping me, but wasn't shaking and quivering & climbing the walls the way that Buddy used to. Other than the few leftovers that will be popped off in the next few days, we shouldn't have to put up with any more fireworks until 4th of July.
We've all got a clean slate today. Time to start making 2007 the best that it can be! Peace, love and prosperity to you all in the new year!
