Here it is the 4th of July, Independence Day, and it is so very tinder dry here in drought-stricken
that they have practically banned the striking of a match let alone the lighting of a fuse to launch my favorite sky rockets. Texas
Here where I live you can practically buy a pyrotechnic display that nearly rivals what people go to see in public parks.
But alas, not this year. This year the only fireworks I will be seeing are the ones coming out of Katy Perry.
