Matt and Whitney went down the street with what Whitney called the "wimpy" fireworks we can buy in Connecticut. Matt set those off. But the neighbors had "big ones" they had brought back from Myrtle Beach. They had fun.We have people on 3 sides setting off fireworks started around 8 and still going at 10:40.
Its a huge tradition for many to make a trip to Wisconsin and come back with a trunk full of fireworks including rockets.
Often multiple families will go in on a load.
Whats funny is a bunch of them are illegal in Wisconsin for a consumer to own but are legal to sell to people from out of state.
Looks like covid did not stop many.
No. We have got a rescue who was described as a Lab mix. He looks like a yellow Lab, bu we did his DNA and it explained a lot about his behavior. He is part yellow Lab; part American Staffordshire; and part toy fox terrier. His hating other dogs is explained by the Staffordshire in him. The digging of holes and incessant barking is explained by the fox terrier. They dig out foxes and bark to protect themselves. But when we first got him he broke down my fence and bit two other dogs. He barked at everything while in the yard and the neighbors heard him throwing himself against the windows inside my house barking at everything that went by from inside.He was the smallest dog I ever had (only 80 pounds) but I couldn't walk him, even after we completed puppy obedience got a bloody nose and class and had a private trainer come once a week. He was too strong and if he got attracted to something, he pulled me. I had a serious fall while walking him in which I fell on my face on the asphalt without breaking it with my hands and broke my glasses and mouth.Sounds like you also have a GSD. One angry neighbor wrought about us on Nextdoor 3 years ago. And yes, we always pick after our poochie
@Musia, I noticed that your children both played musical instruments when they were young. My daughter did, too. Her mental illness put a stop to her ability to practice when she got older, but she played many instruments before then, the main one being the cello. Do your children still play?Sounds like you also have a GSD. One angry neighbor wrought about us on Nextdoor 3 years ago. And yes, we always pick after our poochie
