My brother is a pyromaniac.

July 4, 2010 Leave a comment

Ever since I can remember, my brother has had a fascination with fire and things that go “Ka-BOOM!” So of course it is absolutely no surprise to anyone who knows him that if he made it into adulthood alive, he would get his pyrotechnic license and become an official pyromaniac.

These are from the most recent show he and his crew did:

There he is, on the left.

Still on the left in full fire protection gear (required for everyone on the barge).

The thing about fireworks is that they can be a bit...unpredictable. This one, for example, didn't really want to explode when it was supposed to. It decided to explode a little early...just above the deck of the barge...

Yep. These babies are a far cry from the M-80's he used to use as a kid. Thanks to quick thinking on his and the crew's part, no one was injured...just slightly singed around the edges. Stay safe bro!!

Happy 4th of July!

…the day when St. Patrick drove all the snakes out of Ireland. Now, if only something could be done about the politicians in the US…

A New Year’s toast, literally.

2009 can’t leave fast enough for my taste.  Here’s hoping that 2010 makes up all of 2009’s MANY inadequacies!  *fingers crossed*

My Wish for You in 2010

May peace break into your home and may thieves come to steal your debts.
May the pockets of your jeans become a magnet for $100 bills.
May love stick to your face like Vaselineand may laughter assault your lips!
May happiness slap you across the face and may your tears be that of joy
May the problems you had, forget your home address!

In simple words…
May 2010 be the best year of your life!!!

Loving God, we thank you for
the example of St Nicholas,
who fed the hungry,
brought hope to the imprisoned,
gave comfort to the lost,
and taught the truth to all.
May we strive to imitate him
by putting you first in all we do.
Give us the courage, love and strength
of St Nicholas, so that, like him,
we may serve you through loving
our brothers and sisters.  Amen.

The Real St. Nicholas

This year, I give you the gift of laughter:
