Happy Independence Day to all you independent types out there. True to the plan, we had our commemoration for the event yesterday, as we went to a cookout. The area we were visiting is as quiet as our own, so not much in the way of explosions was going on, but we remedied that with some fireworks a couple of our mutant crew had acquired. The plan was to keep things quiet, and they picked out things that were more about lights and color than kabooms, as much for the sanity of the assembled pets as anything. Unfortunately some of them turned out to be quite loud nonetheless, causing Hudson the wonder dog in particular to freak out. We decided to try one more for a finale, but the firework that was labeled as producing "flashes of colored light" also turned out to cause the most noise of all, provoking my freaked out dog to wet their floor. All-in-all Huddy had just as good a time as we did, but this certainly ended the evening on a sour note for her. Luckily, as I mentioned, it's quite quiet around here, so we haven't heard any explosions so far, and don't expect much to come.
Anyway, happy fourth, and please be careful with those fireworks... it's all fun until someone loses an eye (or pees on the floor).
