Fireworks

IZA:  We are having a nice Easy Sunday here today.  TBT surprised us with treats for Breakfast!  The deck has been comfy (cloudy so it isnt hot).  The US Womens Soccer Team won the World Cup for the 4th time in a row. 

But we wanted to show the 4th Of July fireworks from here at Washington DC (we think of Washington as "local") before it got too old...
They are pretty.
We dont mind the noise of these because we dont feel the pressure and vibrations.
And they arent like camera flashies.
It was quite a finale!
And then the smoke drifted slowly away afterwards...

However, a neighbor sets off fireworks on the 3rd, 4th, AND 5th and THAT bothers us.  We can feel those!  Marley immediately goes UTB at the first one and stays there for an hour after they end, because he is never sure when "the last one" is.  Ayla leaves after a few and curls up ON the bed in the dark bedroom where she feels safe enough.

I usually sit on TBTs lap (which feels safe enough), but this time I went and laid down unner the open dishwasher door.  That allus seems like a safe spot.  Dad says they are illegal here but one of those laws the Police Beins wont enforce cuz there is just too much of it going on.

But the TV pictures are inneresting and I can see the TV from unner the dishwasher door.  And I can see the food bowls from there, too.  Thats impawtant!

Those DC fireworks are extraordinary. I'm very lucky - our local ones don't bother Mudpie at all! She's more alarmed when someone dares walk on her sidewalk MOL

Those in DC sure were pretty. Our neighbors will be setting them of for at least another week.

It is important to keep a constant watch on the food bowls, Iza. You never know when TBT might put some extra treats in there in an attempt to make it up to you for the neighbour's fireworks.

I like them on tv too. They are illegal here too , but doesn't stop anyone as it is only $100 fine.

I'm glad we don't have any close-by neighbors that set off fireworks! Oh, there are people that do... they just live a few blocks away so it's not so crazy.

The fireworks are pretty, but always better from a distance. Eric loved fireworks. He would get in the window and watch them across the river. He was fascinated by lightning too! Crazy boy!!!

What pretty fireworks! We like them better when they are far away. How rude of your neighbor to shoot some off on so many days. Hiss!

It was so hot and humid here, we stayed in the homely comforts and watched those selfsame fireworks! And you are right, they don't bother us one bit!
