On another note we've given up on going out to see the firework as the traffic and crowds out here get so ridiculous.
In my ghetto,
the 4th. begins in June, sometimes May.
Sometimes lasts till Aug.

War zone last night

Using the concept behind the thundershirt, I held our drop kick dog with one hand underneath him and the other on his back. Seemed to significantly calm him down.

We thought our old lab, Lucy, was in the shop....she was apparently working on the screen door on the back porch! Poor girl just can't take poppers!

At least I have not finished painting....

procrastination wins again!!!

Once my kids got old enough to go with friends or become uninterested, I stopped going to public fireworks, too.
