    Remember kids, booze and quarter sticks usually result in EMT calls.

    That’s how it was in Indiana, culminating in a mind-blowing war zone on the day itself. A guy in my neighborhood got arrested on federal charges after he set off his totally illegal cannon in his back yard.

    In most locales in NorCal, they’re illegal and fines are stiff. You always hear some distant booms, but nobody in our hood would even think about it, and especially not this year.

    I will admit, when I was younger was one of those morons. Though I grew up in a small town and we would always go out and have our Texas bottle rocket wars over Independence Creek way outside of town. Now that I live in a city and have seen what it does to my boys I will leave it to the one night...and I don't even participate anymore.
    For at least the last week we have spent most of the evenings trying to comfort our boys.

    To all my American friends, since I doubt you will be on this forum tomorrow,
    Happy Independents Day!
    be safe:)
    (funny thing, our frenchie never even flinched at loud noises, but we had a friend with a red setter who would hide in the closet when ever it thundered)

    My cat retreats to the basement. She doesn't even like it when it rains hard and hits the roof, let alone thunder and explosions.
