Wordless Wednesday – Up On The Roof

Fireworks-02  Fireworks-03


Oh, boo.  You've been humming it since you read the blog header.  And those are the craptastic pictures from my roof on the 4th of July.  It was much cooler in person.  Everywhere you looked, fireworks were going off.  Including the fools in the Aldi parking lot setting off an ammo dump that would have made George S. Patton get a raging hard-on.  The were actually shooting some rockets OVER my 4 story building.

Okay, so that last bit doesn't qualify as "wordless."  Fine, I'll refund your admission fee.

you're right. I WAS humming it.

Guilty. I was humming it too.

At the running track last night a bunch of kids probably no older than 12 set off a roman candle in the middle of the dry field (it's been so hot here that everyone's lawns look like hay.) The entire track came to a halt and stared, as did the tennis courts and the basketball courts. We all stared at the dummies and hoped the field wouldn't catch fire. It didn't, thank God, but the kids knew they'd screwed up, looking around the field in embarrassed shame at all of us, then they bolted for it!

VM - I couldn't think of a title, and the instant I did, that song started running thru my head, and knowing my audience, it would there's, too. Plus, hope that makes up for yesterday's video with Dr. John wearing a muppet on his head.

Cora - You used your Nanny super powers to terrify the hoodlums into good behavior with just a look? That's 100 shades of awesome.

I have driven across the James Taylor Memorial Bridge.

Didn't know there was such a place?

Well, now you do. It's in Chapel Hill.

I'm still waiting for the Ben Folds Memorial Roundabout.

Yes I HAVE been humming it and I am NOT amused. If that first photo wasn't so damn pretty I'd be sharpening a big knife about now and boarding a plane to Chicago.

I'm sorry to admit that I missed the whole song title thingie...and I love James Taylor!

I guess my mind was busy plotting my revenge, uh, surprise for Cora's birthday. ; )

I like those pics, they're not craptastic! Unfortunately for me, I can't listen to that James Taylor at work, but I'm sure it'll be stuck in my head for the rest of the day!

I started singing...Up on the rooftop, reindeer pause...out jumps dear old Santa Clause...

I'm seriously weird.
