Hearing them across Lake Hebron in Monson, Maine right now.
I always enjoyed walking to the elementary school and checking them out growing in Montgomery Township, New Jersey. Just a few houses away. The Blawenburg Band playing and snacks and stuff. The volunteer fireman always running the show.
Missed them on Saturday after the rain at my wife’s cousin’s house.
They can be pretty but also just loud and dangerous.
I do definitely feel uncomfortable around them. I like to keep my fingers.
So be careful and have fun.
And if you don’t want to deal, just don’t.
