So, here we are – living in the south for the next 2 weeks. It’s already been an experience!
For the 4th of July – we went to a fireworks show! It wasn’t the hour-long BIG BANG! that we are used to in Milwaukee down at the shore of Lake Michigan. No – this was done Lake Wedowee style. That’s right – – we all hopped in our trucks and drove up the road to the Citgo station! Yep – you heard it – – the fireworks show was held at the gas station down the street! We parked on the side of the road — got our lawn chairs out of the back of the truck and sat in the middle of the road to watch the show. It was all of three minutes long – – I think it lasted the entire length of Lynnard Skynnard’s “Sweet Home Alabama”.
Ain’t that the shit?

We got 15 minutes worth here, and we didn’t have to hear any damn song about Alabama. 😉
Hope you are enjoying your vacation. 😛
It does sound like it made for some really good family stories:smile: I hope you are having a great time!
Ha! A fireworks display at a gas station. Too bad the grand finale wasn’t the Citgo going up in one giant explosion sending a fireball 200 feet into the air. Now THAT would’ve been ~the shit~, baby. (cue the intro to Sweet Home…)
Don’t worry-people here seriously fly the rebel flag and one of the grand poohbahs of the KKK lives about 15 minutes from my house. I can so totally relate.
Hope y’all had a cold 6 pack of Dixie along for the show.
