Thanks, you too!
I Will be spending part of it with a dog cowering under my skirts, shaking. The rest of my weekend will be devoted to moving the rest of my 6 yards of mulch. whoopie!
Good for her! Use it or lose it.
I Do have a big yard, 3.5 acres. I bought a smaller house last fall. The previous owner let the front garden go to several kinds of ivy (including poison), ferns (which hide and nurture the poison ivy) and thorny blackberry (which will inject the afore mentioned poison ivy into your skin for an extra uncomfortable deep rash) and a mystery weed that is moving out into the yard also. I transplanted most of the viable plants into areas I cleared today. But I have almost emptied a bottle of caladryl treating the occasional spot of poison ivy rash.
It's war, but I swear I'm winning. Lol!
What are you planning? BBQ? Fireworks?
Talking on Poison Ivy that stuff is Bad.. Bad.. Yikes.. My Old Cousin if he just sees it from a Far he contract's it.. he suffers from it really bad ever since his younger years...
I think were going to just Stay inside watch the celebration shows..that's on TV they have some good ones on PBS and other Networks Use to on A&E's Network they had Boston Pops and now I think its on CBS I like the Band Leader he's a Hoot & ya gotta have the 1812 Overture.. Its worth a Listen.. Love it
Yea.. that can be hard on them puppies) I've Had cats up till the Last few years and it didn't bother them to much course my Siamese loved getting under my covers on my Bed he'd Zonk out till it was Din Din time.
I don't mind fireworks much, but I do wish people would be more considerate of their neighbors when setting them off. In my apartment complex we have several elderly people that get very scared from the sound, especially because we live in a high crime area and there has been a rash of shootings lately. Plus my best friend in the apartment below mine is a Vietnam veteran with PTSD, and I am also a war veteran. Generally the fireworks don't bother us but our neighbor seems to have found some of the loudest fireworks I have ever heard in my life. My nerves are definitely on edge.
Last Knight in over in the City of Wichita a Young person he was 16 learned the bad lesson of handling a Mortar Type Firework the shell didn't go right off and the wind came up blew over and in the Direction of his friends and he went to move with his hand it went off severely injuring his hand they say he me loose part of it..
Fireworks of any kind needs to be respected in all ways..
