Pay it forward - Let the guys have some fun!

Got a text from one of the guys in our youth group Tuesday night. They had some fireworks from the 4th & had no place to shoot them off. "Come on over," I told them. Of course, I had to call one of the parents to make sure there wasn't a hidden agenda. Mom said she had been informed and it was fine.

So, we shared some dinner with a couple who hadn't eaten. Played some cowboy golf. Shot off some fireworks.

Of course, the main activity was the one we feared the most - bottle rocket war. We had a lot of those when our son and his friends chose up sides on either side of the pond and tried to assinate each other.Bottle rocket war

I'm always afraid someone will get an eye put out, but all went well and no one lost an eye.

Put an eye out









Marsh made some of her famous brownies, which were gobbled up by all. I figured the sticks lying all over the yard would eventually rot away, so all is well.

Tongue stuck


At least there wasn't much chance of anyone getting their tongue stuck to a pole in July.

Maybe we'll do it again.

Bottle rocket war!  My favorite.  Having lived in California most of my life, and used to firework restrictions, spending my first 4th of July in Mississippi was a thrill.  Everybody brought their own to front beach on the gulf.  Wild and crazy.

Virginia, you sound like my kind of girl lol Until this year, the sale of fireworks was illegal in Kentucky, so if anybody wanted any decent stuff, they had to drive to Missouri to buy. This year, everybody has fireworks!

Donnie- sounds like the boys, and you, had a blast! Nothing like fireworks to help make you feel like a kid again!
