Everything is created from moment to moment, always new. Like fireworks, this universe is a celebration and you are the spectator contemplating the eternal Fourth of July of your absolute splendor.
Wow, I almost forgot to tell you about our trip to Medford for our annual fireworks fun and games.
Every year we celebrate the 4th with a trip to Medford, OR so we can visit with family and play with fireworks. In Reno if you even say the word "fireworks" you get a visit from the long arm of the law. Bushes seem to burst into flames at the slightest hint of fireworks of any kind.
So we packed up Christine and headed North. A pleasant ride made the trip fun with a bit of traffic but not to bad. We arrived in Medford and were greeted by the big tents that sell our sparkly friends. I was told as we passed that I was not to enter the tent without supervision. Brenda knows that I am pretty much out of control in fireworks tents.
On Monday morning Brenda and I wondered down to the local fireworks tent to spend a little (or maybe a lot) on fireworks. The staff was really helpful in helping us get the most for our money. We picked up some of our usual fireworks ... The Lava Light and the Clown Face are always part of our front yard show. This year we picked out some new and longer running fireworks to bring some freshness to our celebration.
The only thing we were missing this year were Ashley as she has moved across the country and Danny, who was in L.A. We had a BBQ and then waited for the fun to begin.
Here is a video of our 3rd Annual Fireworks Spectacular ....
Ooh ... Ahh ...
But we always enjoy the neighborhood celebration around Bonnie and Danny's house. It runs from dusk to about 11:30 pm and puts our show to shame. But we wonder the streets and enjoy all the neighbors celebrations and fireworks. Many are far more spectacular than anything we can buy ... legally!
Here is the neighborhood celebration.
So we had a wonderful time this year and hope to be able to share the 4th Annual Fireworks Spectacular with you right here next year.
Have a Blissful Day!!
Peace, Love and Bliss,
Don and Brenda
