After getting rained out Friday, the annual fireworks show and Fourth of July festivities had beautiful weather Saturday to resume at Memorial Field in Concord.

Watched the "Happy Fifth of July" fireworks from the NH Asylum for the Insane lawn last night. Honestly, I thought this year's show was the best in memory. Late start, but well worth the wait. Still, somehow I expected the grand finale to be a heavenly panoramic pyro rendition of the finished Main Street project. That would've been very grand indeed. Didn't happen, though.

I noted the piece in the Monitor today, thought it was next Saturday. Oh well. Was tillie there? If so was she outside watching or inside watching? That finale was probably a good rendition of the process that has been going on, a big exploding mess.

Couldn't tell you who was/wasn't there, Itsa. I was wheeled out onto the lawn still in full-restraints. A couple of white coats mercifully flipped me onto my backside, so I could see the fireworks. Luckily, Nurse Ratched was off duty.
