Dear Neighbors

Dear Neighbors,

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.

Thank you,

We have some very patriotic neighbors here, too. Only, I'm thinking it's not really about that... Lame. Enough already, peeps!

You should be here in Temecula for the yearly Pow Wow on the Pechanga Indian Reservation. 4 days of chanting. The first night it's pretty cool, but towards the end, I want to yell out my front window "SHUT UP!!!!!"
