Ever hear of the little severe drought we're having? I hope your house is the only one that gets burned down by those bottle rockets you are popping off while my daughter is trying to sleep

Happy New Year!

As long as my neighbors were careful, we enjoyed seeing them. NYE is just 1 night a year so givem a break. <g> We used to just turn the radio on in the room and kids won't hear anything .

Sorry, I think the fact that they are always noisy neighbors makes me crankier than usual at them. Seeing those bottle rockets light up the sky gave me visions of my back yard on fire. And when the little one woke up at 11:30, mama was not pleased. Hopefully it's only 2 nights a year, we also have the 4th to look forward to.

^^^ Not that it's even comparable, but it also freaks out our dogs. One has epilepsy, and some sounds, lights, and loud noises can set off her seizures.

You're wasting your breath complaining about this. Society as a whole, (and my little slice of "heaven" in particular), has pretty much forgotten what it's like to be good neighbors. The fact that fireworks are illegal, I have to sedate my dogs, some of us have to work New Years day, fireworks are a fire hazard, etc. never enter their collective mind. I almost hate to say this, but I find satisfaction if I read the next day that some drunken cretin has blown off his hand with his neighborhood firework display.
I'm not admitting anything, but it's fun to note the worst violators in the neighborhood, roll up to their house on a random Tuesday morning about 3AM and drop a lighted roll of 500 firecrackers on their driveway. What's good for the goose....

I agree - it's rude to launch fireworks at midnight on New Years Eve. But it's also un-neighborly to call the cops on us for fireworks at 7PM on the 4th of July.

But it isn't just one night, we had them going off on Christmas Eve. So much for Silent Night Holy Night.

Also heard some last night.

Must be a redneck thang. Lived all over the country and people don't shoot off fireworks except for the 4th of July.

I could also never figure out how they're illegal but they sell them on the side of the road. Only in Florida.

Unless you know you have a neighbor who has PTSD; I don't. It's not like most anyone has to get up for work the next day, and it's certainly NOT as offensive as driving drunk.
