Cars of importance to someone:
When I was a kid I looked forward to being old enough to ‘shoot firecrackers’. When I was about 8 yrs old, our great state of North Carolina outlawed firecrackers. They could not be sold nor exploded by John or Mary Doe, it had to be a supervised show attended by firemen or other officials. I and my friends were so disappointed.
South Carolina, however, fireworks were still legal. My Uncle Irvin owned a country store and restaurant. He sold firecrackers there.
When we would visit he would take a roll of a hundred firecrackers and nail them on a power pole or tree and set them all off, WHAT A SHOW!
My dad never brought firecrackers back into NC, but friends did. They would sneak and shoot them and run like the dickens.
I still like fireworks, but of course I like them when it is a giant display like city or county. WE have been fortunate a couple times to see the Fourth and New year’s display’s in Washington DC.
We will probably watch our home town display from our church parking lot, it is a great place to see the whole thing.
Do you enjoy fireworks on special days?
