It was quite a strange day yesterday .. first, on our morning walk, little Rex and I found a lost dog. He was an old Golden Retriever .. and he was a little scared being out on his own. I managed to get him on a leash and back to my house. The local animal control came for a pick up … and I’m sure he’s safe and home with his family. The rest of the day I worked outside … cleaned the driveway, washed cars .. that kind of thing.
Later that very same night .. I was watching some Leno, while Rex was at my side, chewing a bone .. then out of nowhere … Ka BAM!! It was really a decent boom … and it sounded like it was right out in front .. sure enough .. it was! There was a huge cloud of smoke .. and sulfur was in the air .. a familiar smell to a fellow pyro. Well, some punk kids set off a fireworks shell in my mail box .. and as you can see in the pic .. not much was left. It was easy for me to determine what it was .. I’ve had my share of fireworks in the past .. now, I actually have an Explosives License .. but that’s a story for another time. Anyway .. I did my share of trouble making years ago .. but I never damaged anyone else’s property .. that’s just not cool. It just shows lack of respect .. and there’s a lot of that going around with some of the kids today .. now I’m sounding like an old man .. ouch!
It’s a good thing no one was around .. or anything else got damaged .. because it could have been a lot worse. I just wish I could have seen it go off .. I bet it was pretty cool ..
