Barbequed with neighbors and had a couple beers in the afternoon, and went home before dark. We have our daughter's neurotic Pomeranian dog. The dog sits and shakes at loud noises. Since in Florida you can buy fireworks that go bang (have to sign a paper that says you are a farmer scaring off birds....lots of farmland in FL, some as little as 1/5th of an acre!) it was a long evening comforting the little hound. My dog could care less.
