The day after…
Saturday, July 5th, 2014

Have I ever told you about the craziness that is living in the boonies in Arkansas? I’ll give you an example. Last night on neighboring hilltops, families set off fireworks. Since we were planning a celebration tonight because we have birthday, we sat on the porch to enjoy everyone else’s light shows. Of course, it was mostly noise, like the sound of mortars going off (something that made me a little nostalgic for my years in the Army). But they didn’t just set off fireworks; someone decided rifle blasts would be fun too. Do these fools not know that what goes up must come down? We headed back inside with the kids.

Did you fire off your own pretty explosives or go to watch some wonderful fireworks display? I don’t think I’ve seen anything spectacular since I lived in Atlanta.

I have a couple of administrative things to get out of the way…

Kim  Smith is the winner from Saturday’s contest! She’ll get a free download of any of my Samhain downloadable books. Congrats! I’ll be in touch!

If any of you haven’t already subscribed to my newsletter, now’s the time! I’ll be sending out one shortly and will be selecting a winner of a very pretty bracelet. Scroll down the left-hand column of this page to find “NEWSLETTER” and sign up!

More craziness will ensue today. The 9-year-old turns 10. Her mom and stepdad spent last night putting together the Barbie Dream House I bought her. She decided the way she wanted to celebrate was a trip to KFC for dinner. (What kid forgoes Chucky Cheese or putt-putt for KFC?) So we’ll hit KFC and come back to open gifts, blow out candles, and hopefully get a swim in before we start the fireworks. 🙂 Our neighbors will love us.

    A smart kid forgoes Chuck E. Cheese and picks KFC! Happy birthday to her and have a great and safe time with the fireworks.

    I just stepped out on my back patio and watched the fireworks from the houses behind us. They all have small kids and actually put on a pretty spectacular fireworks display. Since we’re old and our kids are grown, we simply enjoy what our few neighbors do.
    Happy Birthday to the new 10 yr old. We too had KFC last night. Chucky Cheese can’t compare to the Colonel. 😆

    Went to the Crossroads Cowboy Church and Arena up the road in El Paso to see their fireworks show. Seemed like it went on for almost an hour. Got great pics. 🙂 KFC and swimming and fireworks…heck yeah! Wish my bday was in the summer.
