boom bang pop-pop-pop

The neighborhood pyros are at it again, like every year. It's a day early, but who cares about that?

There's an Indian reservation about a hundred miles from here, and US26 goes right there from Portland, so there's never any problem getting fireworks if anyone really wants to.

The other side of the creek gets overgrown and by this time the grass has dried out, and it's perfect tinder for a huge blaze, so I'm always a bit afraid that someone is going to burn the neighborhood down. The complex hires someone a couple times every summer to clear it all out, and this year they did it about three weeks ago, so it's not a firetrap over there, thank goodness. Still, I'll be worried until the national celebration is finished, probably Monday.

1 The town next to mine has a large fireworks exhibit on July 3rd every year.  It's not far from where I live, so I can watch it without having to go downtown.
