The 4th

The 4th was Deb and my 12 year anniversary together. So at 3 am when she decides, she's in the mood, I'm not one to turn her down. But right when we get to the best part, we hear this "SREEEEEECCHHHHHH, WHAM!!!!" sound from outside followed shortly byflashing red and blue lights. Just my luck. Anniversary sex and a state cop hits a deer right in front of my house. What are the odds? It appears I'm not done with the streak of bad luck yet.

So it was surprising when we had probably our best fireworks show ever that night for the culmination of the Schuyler County Fair. Here's some video:



Near the end you will hear Kenny, (a loader) tell Rob (the shooter) that the first of the 5 inch mortars is loaded heavy. Then you will hear my response after Rob lights the heavy shell. and yes, that is a cornfield we are shooting in, or rather right on the edge of. And no, there was no popcorn.

In this second clip, you get to see a little more of what goes on, on the firing line. That is Kenny Vogler beside me loading 5" shells. I was loading 6" shells, Deb was down the line helping Gwen load 3" shells.



I'd suggest turning your speakers up a bit. When we are shooting, we can barely hear each other above the noise of the shells going off.

Hope you like,

Wander

I'm sorry, but I laughed my head off at that. At least it wasn't a cow. ;)

So is there any fire danger shooting that close to a cornfield, or is it too green to go up in smoke right now?

Coitus Interruptus
2007 Darwin Award Nominee
Confirmed True by Darwin
"What goes up must come down."

(20 June 2007, South Carolina) An hour before sunrise, a 21 year-old couple was found naked in the road by a passing cabbie. The unconscious, injured pair was taken to the nearest hospital where, despite treatment, they died without regaining consciousness. Authorities were at a loss to explain what had happened. There were no witnesses, no trace of clothing, and no wrecked cars or motorcycles.

Investigators eventually found a clue high on the roof of a nearby building: two sets of neatly folded clothes, and nothing else. There was no indication of foul play, only of foreplay. "It appears as if the two individuals have accidentally fallen off the roof," Sgt. Florence McCants said.

Safe sex takes on a whole new meaning when you are perched on the edge of a pyramid-shaped metal roof! This is a true Darwin Award trifecta: TWO people die, WHILE in the act of procreation, due to an ASTONISHINGLY poor decision. Bottom line: If you put yourself in a precarious "position" at the edge of the roof, you may well find yourself coming and going at the same time.

Ironically, one of the deceased was named, "Tumbleston."
(Some reports list the name as "Tubleston.")
