Well, the Nasties are at it again! I’m sitting here on my couch with my little doggie on the 4th of July. Little doggie is not liking all the fireworks, so I’ve been sitting here holding her and whispering soothing words to help keep her relaxed.
Guess who pulls into my driveway! My friendly neighborhood policeman. He comes in. I give him a big ol’ glass of sweet tea. We talk a spell while he enjoys his cold glass of tea. We listen to the fireworks going off all over the neighborhood (which is not allowed in Iowa). Tells me the Nasties are complaining about me shooting off loud fireworks. I explained I don’t even do sparklers because it scares little doggie. Says well, if you do happen to have some and you decide you really want to shoot them off in honor of the 4th of July, just be sure you wait until about 2 a.m. Then do it right outside their bedroom window, but remember, I never said any such thing. I had to laugh. Even the friendly neighborhood police are not liking the Nasties! So mum’s the word, just in case I decide to do that very thing. LOL! He said thanks for the tea and he left. It’s nice the Nasties give my police friends reasons to visit me, isn’t it!
