The best is when Hollis or autie gets wound up & blows their respective tops sky-high. It's probably gunpowder in autie's case. Not sure what kind of combustible mixture Hollis uses.

The silent ones.

Incidentally, the flying monkey patrol will be out tonight in case someone didn't get all his fireworks fired off by 2am this morning.

I wholeheartedly agree about silent fireworks being the best ones. Loved the humorous "Fireworks Suck" article featured this week.

Last night, downtown, they had a firework that spilled out like a waterfall. It was beautiful and several people applauded. Great show. Thanks to all involved.

Shakin' his fists at whippersnappers no doubt.

Did you pass the 10 yr mark where you could collect on his Social Security benefits if they are better than yours?

Bet it involved alcohol or boys.

ladyfingers, buzz bottles, snicker bombs, church burners, finger blasters, gut busters, zippedy-doodas, crap flappers, spleen splitters, whisker biscuits, honkey lighters, Hüsker Düs and don'ts. Cherry bombs, nipsy dazers, with or without the scooter stick. if those are unavailable, snakes and sparklers are ok.

Dion songs? As usual I have no clue what HB is talking about, but have learned to appreciate his talent for it.

My favorite fireworks? Under the sheets with the lights on comes to mind, but then my mind tends to distort past memories

Anybody know where I can get some of them 'flash-bang' things the swat teams use? I'm thinkin' 'trick or treat' could have a whole new meaning this Halloween . .

Katy Perry tells me I'm a firework.

@Hollis We had a day off yesterday. We spent the day on the boat getting sunburned and drinking drinks. Started the new job today!

The new job couldn't be anywhere near as exciting as babysitting all of us!
