It always boggles my mind that our city sponsors this activity, but the kids LOVE it, so we do it. Diving for Dollars.
Several of us were hit by fireworks "shrapnel" and ash and such. Also it was very loud and Peter didn't really appreciate that. So lesson learned, next year we'll move much further back.
Every year Abe and I have the same discussion about whether or not to take pictures of fireworks. I say "nay" as we don't have a good camera and pictures of fireworks are never anywhere near as impressive as the real thing and I won't post any of his pictures of fireworks. As already mentioned, according to Abe, anything you enjoy warrants a picture, so he says "yea". Thus he takes pictures of fireworks every year. This year we both win-- I'll post his picture and he can acknowledge that, indeed, it's not a good picture and the real thing is much better.
