Happy Fourth of July ?
On the Fourth of July, New Years and other assorted and sundry holidays, Floridians blow up firecrackers and just about every other variety of fireworks. Some get seriously injured. Others burn down houses or forests. We often had bottle rockets landing on our roof!
Most fireworks are illegal in Florida. Hah! There's a loophole. And because of that loophole, fireworks stands such as this spring up everywhere at certain times of the year. If you sign a piece of paper stating you plan to use the fireworks you purchase for agricultural purposes, you can buy anything you want.
So, who's to know that you don't know agriculture from urban blight? The authorities pretend none of this is happening.
