Support conservation and fish with NEW Florida specialty license plate InspirationBy Charles TowneI have, with due consideration, arrived at the conclusion that whoever invented the 4th of July was a little boy totally devoid of parental guidance or supervision. I have, from my birth, enjoyed anything that went BOOM!When I slithered out into this life my little pockets were full of cherry bombs and ’80s which as any kid from my time knew was the epitome of BOOM! and THE most desirable of all fire crackers.I have been most fortunate in my life in the sense that I still have all my fingers and other body parts.When I was a boy it was possible to buy fireworks through the mail. IMAGINE THAT! Through, THE MAIL!!!Coming from a simpBOOM!ler and more genteel time I have had the opportunity to blow up things.Dynamite is fun. To be precise, 60 % Dupont is wonderful for blowing out tree stumps and destroying beaver damsBeaver are wonderful animals. Why are beaver wonderful? You might ask. Because they build dams. Beaver dams, as their name denotes, dams creeks and streams which eventually floods roads. Enter yours truly. I was hired to dynamite beaver dams.All of this was calculated to make things go BOOM!!! which gave purpose to my dull life, and I haven’t even mentioned shooting cannons!BOOM!!!

Best to stay away from the M80s and cherry bombs at our age – we might light the fuse and forget to throw it… Have a great Independence Day – GOD BLESS AMERICA and our military that keep us free. Imagine how happy I was to discover that the government uses M-80’s as diver recall signals! A bit of silicone and lead weight on the ends and you have a device that can signal divers for hundreds of yards to surface now and avoid decompression time! My government providing an almost endless supply of quality “BOOM”.!!! For you civilians, the old saying still applies, “The best fireworks are sold by the guy with one eye and two fingers on one hand!” Have a glorious 4th everyone! charles towne Please enter your comment!
