Unlike last year, I was off this July 4th. When I lived in the actual city of Spartanburg, they didn't allow fireworks though a lot don't care and ignore it. Now I'm outside city limits, I live in an area with a lot of what ifs when it comes to the fireworks being safe. So we went to the city's annual event in Barnet Park with our lawn chairs. Daisy's mom had fixed some kind of special food and wanted her to come over her house to have some. The timing was terrible so we had to miss it even though it made her mom a little more than just mad. They live in a subdivision so I'm always a little worried about having fireworks there. And I'm not spending my Independence Day where people only just eat with no fireworks or even a pool.
