In preparation for the 4th of July on Monday, we stopped by a firework vendor last night to pick up a few toys. As we walked around the outdoor booth I was surprised by the variety. I guess I haven’t purchased fireworks in a really long time. When I was young the classics were Piccolo Petes, Flowers, Poppers, and Sparklers. Some of the newer names, (which I didn’t quite understand) were Grand Latte, Mad Dog, Climbing Panda, Killer Bear, and Dixie Delight. They were overpriced and probably all did the same thing. In the end we settled on a cheap 15-pack and some sparklers from the grocery store across the parking lot. We’re ready for the 4th!
