The kids left today to head back to Atlanta. I spent the morning emailing the Industrial Board and ordering wireless microphones for Florida University. This afternoon about five PM, Deborah and I drove up to Brooks Park and immediately started making hamburgers and hot-dogs, wrapping them in foil for the onslaught of the fireworks spectators. We actually did quite well considering that last year food was free and this year we had no sponsor to pay for the meat and buns. Most people understood and paid happily, but a few complained. The mayor, several
council persons and spiritual leaders showed up to join the festivities and the fireworks
were great as you might expect. The second photo shows an incendiary burst just to the right and over the mayonnaise jar.
