no rest for the wicked, the weary, or the catwhisperer....

(Scoop and me)

You get older and you MIGHT NOT SEE THE APPEAL of fireworks.  Especially in the inebriated hands of a neighbor who lives a couple blocks away (I am guessing who it is).  OK, fireworks for the kids after dark, right?
  BUT INTERMITTENTLY FROM 10-1 am??????????????
Just as you get to sleep again, ZZZZZZZZZZ BOOOOOOOOOM!
I think my beagle and I should take an early morning walk over to their yard, she can leave a package on their lawn and howl at the varmints LOUDLY.....

I spent the fourth working, natch!  I mean, I have a 3 day festival to attend next week, right?  SO, the kiln is on, the hands are busy making and glazing.

BUT, as you might guess, there is a lot of catsitting for the amateur and professional catwhisperer....I saw Scoop and Puffy Saturday.
Puffy is totally sweet although she has a well-deserved reputation for being psycho. Just don't let her see your hands! She'll slash at them....
Scoop is like a golden retriever, but with bottle toss them down the hall, she brings them to you.  She was born in my friend's yard to a feral cat but adopted at 3 weeks and she could not be sweeter or smarter.

Then of course, home to my own cat Spike who is like "where have your hands been....?".

You are a potter. Where else would you spend the day but in your studio?
Is it me or are fireworks more like artillery these days? Of course, when I was small, fireworks in the hands of any but professionals was totally illegal. We were happy with sparklers!

I agree 100% on that view of fireworks. Shoot 'em off at dusk, be done an hour later. There were some neighbors out here blasting off loud ones at 1 even 2 and randomly to boot. Made me crazy and I cannot imagine how the pets felt.

OK, what in the blazes are you feeding pink flowers to Puff for? No wonder she's making a face!

You don't ever want to spend July 4 in Florida. Fireworks, the big ones, are all legal (or legal-ish) down here. Ridiculous.
