    Yup, got some big mortar shells ready in case it rains. Kinda to dry to chance it. My neighbors hate it cus they have dogs. Course when the fireworks go off lots of idiots start shooting off guns, I live in the outskirts of town. Gotta keep your head down.

    Same here cept for small fireworks that only go a couple feet of the ground. The only ones that do full blown fireworks here have to be licensed like the country clubs, indian casinos and of course the City. Problem with driving through NM is that they have warehouses full of mortars. One is about one mile east of the AZ NM border.

    What kind of music were they playing? :nodding:
    O, wait.......... I was supposed to be surprised and upset, right? :D
    Back in "the day" my grandparents would go to Wyoming every 2 years to visit relatives. They always came back with a lot of firecrackers, roman candles and the fun stuff. They had a small farm 5 miles out of town. Cow pies and firecrackers.............. a good thing.:D

    My former son in law was in charge of the Macy's fireworks show in New York last night.He had a crew on 4 different barges, and positioned himself on the Brooklyn Bridge for the button pushing. His brother was in charge of the Rose Bowl fireworks show in Pasadena, Ca. Claims to be the biggest show east of the Mississippi. Both went off without a hitch, and both are safe Good job boys.

    That's gotta be a fun job. I bet people would be amazed at how long it takes to plan something like that.

    He said he was having friends over, they were playing the usual Alternative rock, indie pop rock the younger kids listen to. They left me lots and lots of beer!
