It’s that time of year again. Where patriotic humans set money on fire and watch it explode. Also, known as the 4th of July. It’s a beautiful thing.
This was Pink and Rick’s first big firework year, and I expected to have a good story to tell you. Like, they ran around with sparklers in their mouth and smoke bombs tied to their tails. Unfortunately, I got nothing. Not even a smoky puppy.
Pink and Rick didn’t care about the fireworks at all. They were too busy trying to dominate the food table.
Nobody else noticed the dogs lack of enthusiasm, because we went to my parent’s house for the 4th of July. My brother is KING of fireworks. So, he took over the hijinks from Pink and Rick.
My brother likes to make his own fireworks. He’s a Mechanical Engineer, and he talks about going to mining school someday– to be a professional blow up stuff person. His specialty is wrapping up explosives in tin foil and duct tape. This year, he filled a Walmart bag with explosives and threw it off the deck. I don’t have a picture, but there is a video of his homemade smoke bomb below. You’re welcome.
Also, this year my brother made a remote ignition for his firework display. And, he made a massive board full of artillery shell tube loader things.
Here’s the video with the homemade smoke bomb. But, that’s not the best part. Check out the monster artillery shell explosion at the end–not just once but three separate times.
I hope you had a great fourth! Here’s to hoping Pink and Rick are more patriotic next year. Do any of your family members or friends really get into fireworks?
