Thanks, Marc!

I am looking forward to a restful and relaxing day today.

Sounds like a good plan - over to my brothers for BBQ and to play with
his kids, kids....then to the top of the hill for the fireworks.

I had to deal with a fall issue for my wife. She had a fall last night in the nursing facility and ended up needing her skin be glued back together - they do not do stitches anymore. Had to deal with the "fallout" of such an incident at a nursing facility, including taking photos of her face myself. This was not a good holiday for either of us.

As for fireworks, New York State made fireworks illegal for everyone but the "professionals" who can afford the fees. But last night it was a constant boom-boom-booooom till 2 or 3 am. One was loud enough to rattle my windows on the 10th floor. The Fire-Rescue and Ambulance sirens were going off every 15 to 20 minutes till way past midnight. The police sirens were not going off much since there were too many calls with no one around when they get to the place where the booms happens. So they rarely go out on the fireworks calls.

All the professional shows happened either Friday, Saturday, or Sunday. Tonight there are very few in the communities up to 30 miles away. The next community as large as Elmira, is about an hour or more in any direction. Elmira is the county seat.
