When I was a boy I just loved fireworks. We spent much of our 4th of July time at my grandmother's house in Arkansas. The advantage was fully legal fireworks. You could set off as much as you could afford. And my brother and I blew off a lot of them. We figured out that the firecrackers and bottle rockets were far more economical than a lot of the other stuff like Roman candles and bigger skyrockets.
And we never got injured or burnt down the house or anything. Although we did blow up a few ants as we blasted their ant hills.
But those were real fireworks. They were the kind that flew and exploded. All we can buy are the safe and insane kind that just sort of fizz. I can't decide if I am going to bother this year.
