Well, it's easy to tell that tomorrow is the fourth. All of the locals are already setting off fireworks. Of course, everyone around here gets a little nervous when they hear loud bangs, since the plant is located in a less than wonderful part of town. (There have been several murders within a few blocks of the plant, over the last 10 years. We've also had gun shots fired around the outskirts of the plant, numerous times.)

It's funny, fireworks have been outlawed in the city limits for 20 years, but every year, they still sell them and set them off everywhere. By Sunday night, there will have been probably a hundred reports on the local news of people getting hurt, or worse, from fireworks accidents.

Well, only 30 minutes and I'm out of here. Have to work tonight, but have tomorrow off. Than back here on Friday. My boss is taking Friday off, for a 4 day weekend. He'll be in on Monday and then off for a week on vacation. It will be nice. Who knows, I might actually break down and eat lunch on Friday.
