4th of July

sitting at the vet's office today, i had the chance to watch the news... first let me say, i love fireworks!!! well, the firework shows, i'm really not too big on anything but sparkers... last year the fireworks were kinda lame... the year before we didn't have any because "the city didn't budget for it"... which brings me to watching the news and what i found out... the city has cancelled the fireworks this year... because of the weather... they're saying everyone that does the fireworks is overworked because of all the weather lately... this is where i'm stuck... ok, yes, w.f. was declared a disaster area on friday because of all the flooding but not all of the city is flooded (as snobbish as that might sound! and i don't mean it that way either)... and yes, we have been getting rain every day, not all day everyday just every day, for the past 17 days or so... but at least for once we wouldn't have to worry about it being too dry!! and don't you think that the city could have found some (qualified) volunteers to set off the fireworks?!?! i mean surely they can't be that difficult!! i personally think this is just the city's way of getting out of the fireworks...

when i was little the fireworks were so good... i think our air force base used to do them... i could sit on the rooftop or in the swimming pool and watch them... we were so close to them too... it was like they were right above you... that is one of my most favorite peaceful happy memories... me, laying in the still pool, floating on my back, watching the fireworks explode right above me against the black sky... with no cares or worries in the world... just watching a magnificent show that seemed like it was being put on just for me... i know this is one reason why i love a good fireworks show!! it makes me think of being a kid again, it brings back that memory and that time of simple happiness... when everything was right with the world...

I would think that a nice fireworks display is just what the residents of W.F. needs right about now. Hmm...

Enjoy the fourth, hope its not too soggy.

I read about all the flooding in Texas in the elevator at work, and wondered if it affected you! Stay dry!

Maybe you will get fireworks next year? :)
