is fast approaching us. As we take to our back yards, the roads, campgrounds, lakes rivers and streams to relax and have the start to the summer, I take time here and now to say, please take time to remember those who worked hard to give us the freedoms we enjoy. I know that my weekend will be filled with yard work and a little gardening as well as a day of fishing. We hope everyone has a pleasant and safe Independence Day and that you and your family are Happy, Healthy and safe. From our home to yours.

The county is setting off a 24" mortar, the biggest allowed by law in this country, as the big finish for the fireworks display. The pattern is said to be over a mile wide and can be seen 100 miles away. It is too dangerous to be transported on the highway and has to be manufactured on site. Armed guards will be keeping an eye on it until it is used.

 

The line Jeff Foxworthy had about Georgia hosting the Olympics keeps popping into my head every time I think about this...

" You just know we'r gonna screw this up"

That's pretty cool.  You outta get a video of it if you can.  That would be neat to see.

 

I love fire works but man are they dangerous

Hoping for a little different ending to this years festivities. last yeas we had just started out fireworks when my fie pager went off. Pole barn on fire. Arrived to find to fully involved. It belonged to a friend and was full of cars painting supplies and a 55 gallon drum of racing fuel. After it was all done the barn and all its contents where a total loss. Fire investigator found the cause to be in the breaker box. It had smoldered unnoticed for quite a while prior to being found. Could really do without that light show this year.
