I am not really sure what you are celebrating. It is now July 18th and as of 10:30 last night, you were still setting off fireworks, as you have been since July 3rd. I agree that we live in a great country, but 15 days of fireworks is a little much. Most nights it doesn't bother me because I am usually laying on the couch at that time...in the back of our house...where the fireworks aren't as loud. But last night I was feeling kind of crummy and went to bed early. I was on the verge of sleep when your display of insanity began. BOOM! BOOM! BOOM! My first thought was gun shots. Then I wondered if someone was banging on our front door. And then I remembered - you and your damn fireworks. It lasted for 30 minutes. And by then I was wide awake. Please, for the love of God, just finish them off so that we can go back to being a peaceful neighborhood.
