Tumblewords: My family, in early years, went to the City Park for the firework display and the loudest noise came from the speaker system: 'Do Not Shoot Fireworks in the Park'. Thousands of firecrackers and cherry bombs provided a wild popping background. Now dingbats shoot big rockets into my yard, trees and onto my roof. I dream flames. Scary. And it does last for more than a night.
DFO: The thing that bugs me worse about fireworks are the fools who set them off for weeks before and weeks after the Fourth of July. They add a festive feel on the Fourth. They do nothing but scare animals and annoy neighbors when launched weeks later.
