I haven’t been to a fireworks display in…years. Mostly because for years, I’d have to work early the next day and who wants to brave crowds of people and crowds of bugs and be cranky at work the next morning because of no sleep just to see pretty lights in the sky?
Not me! But this year? I wanted to see fireworks.
As I figured: there were crowds of people and the crowds of mosquitoes were especially blood-sucking. But there was a crowd of bugs I’d not expected to ever see: lightning bugs! I’d never seen them, and they provided quite the wonderful pre-show lights!
So. Happy Independence Day and Happy Labor Day. Enjoy this day with family and friends and crazy good times!
