Fireworks Extravaganza

Bad Kids with Chinese Artillery ShellsThe weekend in Pennsylvania was pretty sick. Even with driving for up to 8 hours each way and sleeping on the floor, Lori and I both had a great time. Friday was the big bash with heavy cocktail flow and lots of yak and llama flesh to munch on - then some bad kids showed up with over $800 worth of fireworks. They were set off from a small island in the lake and put on a great show for the whole area. In fact this 20-30 minute show was better than some local town's 4th of July shows. It was so good even the PA State Police showed up to say hi. I now realize the secret to not busting the budget is just to have a bunch of drunken idiots light the whole show, no need for town's to waste money on professionals. Here's a video sample of the action - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bw3ZCbQa6jU. We even stopped at an establishment selling works of a fiery nature before we left the keystone state.

Last night I got the Wii set up and was straining muscles right away playing baseball, but at least I didn't go flying across the room, stumbling and bumbling like Lori.
