So today I decided I needed to go get some more fireworks. Well, not really some more, just some. I didn't have any, just my parents, and I was needing a good firework fix. So we ran up to my Uncle Bill's place where his son has been selling fireworks for years. Daniel sells them to us at a very discounted price (Thank you Daniel and Uncle Bill, thank you ever so much!) and that allows me to buy MORE stuff. And this year is a three day weekend with the 4th on Friday. So the way I figure it, the 4th will be for three days. Get it? We will have to celebrate for three days in a row. Which is only fair because I sat at home by myself last year on the 4th and cried. I was not around family on my favorite holiday, was not shooting fireworks, and I don't know why I wasn't there. That may be my brains way of protecting me from bad memories....forget.
So of course you have to have some Black Cat fireworks. Oh yes, you must have them for the 4th or it just isn't American.
And then some Jumping Jacks. I like these too. Of course you can buy them by the pack, the little individual package, but why? I buy them by the brick.Of course smoke bombs are a must. Most kids shoot the little smoke balls, but not us. We shoot the mega smoke bombs. These are muti-colors, and we also have the white smoke military smoke bombs. They are cool too but I don't have any pictures of them. Mom and dad have them at their house.
I mean just look at this stuff. The red/white/blue flag is nothing but missiles. It is like a giant Saturn missile. It measures about 2'x3'. It is huge. Then I have the other two big giant blow up things that the flag is sitting on. I have a tall mortar shooter called Sweet 16. I have not had that one before and Teresa said it was really good. Of course I have Night Crawlers (like the old fashion black snakes, but you light a fuse and the snakes just grow.) for the kids. Do you remember how hard it was to light the Black Snakes? Just took too much effort. You had to use a match or really get the punk going good and usually you just could not do it with the punk. I got three of these semi-truck looking things that whistle, spark, and flame, they are for Caleb to shoot. They are pretty cool. Mom and dad got a bunch of those. Then we have the old Cracklin' Ball that is pretty cool and fun for the younger kids. Texas Whistler, or Chasers or whatever you want to call them, I grew up with them as a kid. I love them. They shoot down the road, whistle then blow up. I always loved them because you never knew for sure where they were going to go. Better be on your toes! I got a couple 2 color Space Ships, some M-2 crackers and one of my other favorites is the Strobe Lights. I love the 4th of July. Any one want to come over for brisket and the fixin's?
