July 5, 2010.
I hope everybody had a safe and fun filled Fourth of July. I’ve got to admit that being from New Jersey fireworks in general were always a bit mystical for me. They can’t be bought or sold there so when I was a kid they always seemed so “illegal”. Once you leave the Garden State and head south you can pretty much buy them anywhere. My favorite stand that we’ve encountered so far was located right inside a liquor store. Nothing says fun like alcohol and explosives. It always amazes me at just how many fireworks related injuries there are every year. Did you read about the genius in New York who blew off his entire freaking arm? I’m sure this Einstein will make the papers again in a few years when he accidently rips his penis off while masturbating with his brand spankin’ new prosthetic arm. You’re welcome for the visual.
Anyway, we spent the holiday fiberglassing, before heading back to the boat for doggie haircuts, dinner and some fireworks.
