This past Sunday was the Fourth of July.
Handsome and I gathered with friends, cooked hotdogs and hamburgers, then drove to a spot nearby to watch the fireworks show. We shared, laughed, ate, and stared at the colorful bursts lighting the sky. I know I’m truly lucky. I cherish these days. Family. Friends. Food.
Over my lifetime thus far, I have seen amazing firework shows:
1/With Handsome and friends on a boat in San Francisco bay.
2/On a balcony office building with my young family where the fireworks were shot right at us, and we felt the booms in our chests.
3/When driving home after a family gathering, my friend and I spied a show at a stadium. Pulled over and enjoyed every minute.
4/After my shift ended at an amusement park, I changed clothes and sat on an old bench in the compound area with other co-workers. As the fireworks detonated over our heads, we whooped and hollered, and then, gave a rating.
5/Around the corner from my house and a few blocks further is a country club firework show for their members. #2son and I parked our chairs on a sidewalk and watched. Just the two of us.
6/My family and I sitting on the steps of the National Gallery in Washington D.C. and viewed the show over the Washington monument.
I wish I had good pix of these to share, but I’ve never been able to take good photos of fireworks.
Are you a fireworks fan? If so, can you share a memory?
FYI: More Information about Fireworks:
Full of sass and another kind of fireworks:
“Jonson doesn’t comprehend the concept. Not with a small part”—with a mischievous grin, I crooked my little finger—“like his.”
Behind her hand, Tracey snickered for a moment, then grew somber. “And how would you know his man part size, sister dear?”
“Why, sister dear, you told me.”
“So I did.”
