My Fourth
While I didn't drink from any fifths on my fourth, (I have been to the Firth of Fourth, but that is another storey.) I had a good time riding my tricycle to the local Harding's grocery store and picking up a cherry pie and a whip cream bomb which I shared with my sister and nephew next door. Mmmm, exploding whip cream! Sister made hamburgers with onions and potato chips. Iffy potato salad was available but I did not partake.

On my way to the store I made a side trip through one of the local picnic/playground parks. It was totally vacant. At close to 100 degrees out, I guess it was just to hot.

I did a few explody and flamey things. My neighborhood had some really swell flamey mortars going off in the evening.

All that and the Higgs Boson. Altogether not a bad 4th!

I set off a few fountains, but the neighborhood was crazy with newly legal (and probably outright illegal) fireworks all evening.

And I discovered a stash of complete Saturn Press booklets to try to sell at NARAM.

Excellent! Are these from your series of comb bound ROTW updates?

Glad you had a good one! I have to ask, what is a whip cream bomb? Is it just a dessert name or did it really "explode" somehow?

Just a standard can of whip cream stuff (Readi Whip) with compressed, dissolved nitrous oxide that explodes into a foam as it comes out the nozzle. So yes, it does explode if only in a very mild manner. Any pressurized container of that nature can be fairly called a bomb. I've heard the term most commonly applied to spray cans of insecticide.
