What are you doing on the Fourth of July?
« on: July 1, 2003, 12:24 PM »
So what are your plans on for the Fourth of July?
I already bought my fireworks (small arsenal)  ;D and am going to my cousins house where its legal to light them.  In the morning I have to work but at least its triple time 8).  After work I'm going to my cousin's house for a barbaque and to look at his Star War collection and then when it gets dark light my fireworks.  I just wish they were legal in my city, I think I need to campagin to change the laws of my city. ;D

I'm going down to my Grandma's house who lives in Southern Illinois (4 hours south of me), and it's when we have our annual family reunion.  It's the same thing every year, but it's really the only time I get to see any of these relatives on my dad's side.  It's a good time though.

Going downtown, watching fireworks, see lousy country bands rape some covered tunes, and ogle the girls. Is this country great, or what?

I have a friend with a house on the lake where they have the Seattle Fireworks show.

I'll be going there for a BBQ at some point during the evening. Sometimes I've been known to bring some good fireworks of my own, but this year I think it's too dry for that kind of thing.

SO much for the rotten egg smell of the artillery canon thing.

Celebrating the 4th with my side of the family and the fiance in another town close by.  There will be the familiar cookout, family arguement, fireworks watching and showing the little ones how to play with sparklers.  Good times!

Working.  I'm Canadian eh?   8)

But in honor of the great country to the south (so you don't have igloos, no biggie) I'll take the afternoon off and go golfing.  Maybe have a few beers. ;D

Celebrate your love of America, by blowing up a small chunk of it.

Me? Nothing. Maybe some tv, or go see a movie.
