Happy 4Th of July!!!

For many reasons this is not my favorite holiday. The fact that this happens about 30 feet from my bedroom window is just one of the reasons.

However, these make me happy every 4th.

And these always make my family happy.

I admit these are pretty.

But the noise triggers my bomb shelter instincts.

I have not stepped outside in years to view these. That is a job left to The Blog Tech.

I huddle in a back room with a loud tv and wait for the festive attack to end.

The crowds are another downside to this day.

Tomorrow I will be picking up the refuse from the night that the jubilant crowd deposits in my trees, bushes and anywhere else they can throw it.

These fireworks confuse Teddy. She thinks anything this loud is a threat, but she can never figure out how to attack them.

So she hangs out with me and the loud tv.

Wherever you are and however you celebrate this day, have a safe and fun time. I am in full Fall mode starting tomorrow!
