4th o' July..

We had a terrific time doin' all that patriotic American type stuff you do on the 4th of July.

Lizzard King did his magic with burgers and dogs (sorry Speck) on the grill,mom o' LK toiled all morning preparing her patented 'to-die-for' potato salad,and some friends stopped in to join in the celebration.
Long about dusk,we toddled our selves out to the O-Town Dam to catch the annual extravaganza!..

LK has a pre-determined secret spot to park,directly behind the dam.
The uninitiated will spend 3 hours trying in vain to reach the top of the dam,and 3 more hours trying to get back down the hill after the show...(your time may vary).



..break out the beer and soda,kick back in our lawn chairs,and enjoy the show!








It was short,..about twenty minutes,..but very sweet.
What with all the ballyhoo over wildfires 'round these parts,I figure we were pretty fortunate to have any kind of display at all.





And guess what!!..They managed to pull the whole thing off without burning down the entire Pacific northwest!
I knew we could do it..
Take that,you Secret Fraternity of Assholes!



Just in case these totally manipulated,and shamefully re-touched in Photoshop stills aren't enough for you guys (Sheesh!..yer killin' me!),I've included the Reader's Digest condensed video version,for your shopping convenience.

I hope this post has found you and yours in the best of health,and holiday spirits!
As for me,and yet again,life is good in Sling's Domain.

I am a potato salad nut...not any chance you can pass on the recipe, is there?

BTW, great camera shots mine never come out that good.

wow..how cool is that?...i'd never make the top of the dam, about 1/4 of the way up I'd be laying on the ground wispering..'call 911, call 911'...
you didn't have any of my stuffed jalapenos though...

I SUPER DUPER LOVE FIREWORKS!! Thanks! I can't believe you made MEEEE a video! Ooooh! Spec-fucking-tacular.

Oh. Sorry. It's great! It's better than the real thing. ALmost.

I'm at 2:15 - 2:35 and I got every kind of explosion I love. The twinkly ones are the best, naturally. I'm sure we all agree. Right?
I'm hyperventilating. I have to go away.

Oh. OOooh. Lookit, lookit. Lookit!!

Hey, what did you do to make those nifty swifty excellent pyrotechnics show up? Do you have the best video camera in the whole world?

 
At 6:42 PM , Blogger Lorraine said...

Mmmmm...MOLK potato salad....

 
At 7:29 PM , Blogger Sling said...

Great to haer that y'all had a fine holiday! :)..That's what it's all about.
We pretty much chowed down on the 'tater salad,and MOLK ain't given up the recipe. ;)
Now for the geek stuff!
I think the video turned out okay,largely due to the lack of light pollution at the dam above O-Town.
My camera has a 'Frame-by frame' feature,but I chose to import the video into 'Windows Movie Maker',and used it's frame search to capture,and save the still shots.
Then I opened them in Photoshop,sharpened and enhanced the 'saturation' of the color to achieve the desired effect..it's not cheating!..it's artistic liscence. ;)

Hey, I know that place!
(That's what she said)
Oh wait, wrong blog...

There were quite a few "illegal" fireworks going off in my neighborhood, Sling. You would have been SO proud!

Excellent footage, btw!

Love,
Julie

Hat-tasia- This place is more fun with you in it!
(that's what she said).

julie- Sounds like a bunch of scofflaw ne'er-do-wells in your neighborhood.
Cool!

I'm an old fart...we were in bed at 10 and the kids next door went into town to watch the city sponsored fireworks thus managing to avoid starting a roof fire like they did last year.

 
At 3:45 PM , Blogger Sling said...

rosie-you-are-my-posey- Ahhh!,..roof fires.
Boy,those were the good old days'.

At 6:50 PM , Blogger Sling said...

billy P.- Both of my ex-wives,and all of my mistresses felt the same way.
What is it with chicks anyway?

 
At 1:02 AM , Blogger Middle Child said...
