Independence Day (Fourth of July)

Fireworks are stupid!!! And they are loud!!! We live out in the country. If we were in the city, fireworks would not be legal for private citizen to explode. But out here, they're considered a mighty-fine thing. Out here the humans think that it's fun to blow stuff up real good. (My Human wants you to know 2 things: 1) she took that photo above on the right several years ago at a big fireworks show in our town and 2) she's not planning on blowing anything up.)

And speaking of stupid, I've noticed that it always thunderstorms around the 4th of July! Both lightning & thunder are stupid! I have this theory that the smoke from the fireworks and the bbq's feeds the clouds and that causes the storms. It stormed all last night.

My Human does not have to go to that stupid job she has today. I think I heard her say something about giving all of us (except Niki) baths. Niki is excluded because of her tendency to sink her teeth into my Human's hand.

Fireworks are illegal here too, but they are like speeding. Almost everyone does it. They don't bother us as much as they do other dogs, but the humans have to stay home and play with us so we don't get too paranoid. Not a bad thing really.

By the way, nice format. Was it difficult redesigning things? I am afraid to lose things if I re-do my blog.

Thanks, Woof Woof. Yes, it was difficult. But what I did was create a duplicate blog and then I changed everything over on that one before cutting and pasting the code into the main one. I've been tweaking the format still, but I always do that first before switching it over to the World of Turbo.

I don't have a solid knowledge of the html code, so at one point I had to go through line-by-line to find the error.

Thanks for the explanation. Sounds too much like work. On second thought, I like my current blog format much better already.

Already today I don't even want go out and just hang by the door if Mom makes me. OOOOOOH... no no no no no NO!! Silly humans with their idea of fun. Silly silly...yeah yeah yeah!!! You big guys take care of it while I hide, ok?
