Here is another memory. Soon, the 4th of July holiday will become a part of the memories of little children everywhere. If we are lucky, our city will not experience any cherry bomb disasters or sparkler delight burns upon little feet. Down with happy memories, DOWN, I say!!!
As a child my family would bring out our folding chairs -cherry cokes, sparklers, and lightning bugs captured in jars without holes - and sprawl out in the alleys of our neighborhoods, to watch the 4th of July fireworks. It was a blast, well, maybe not for the lightning bug --hmm- well!
The times of old are creeping up on me today- perhaps someone has contaminated my peanut butter again - better go watch another 24 hrs of CNN!
