Plus! Fireworks are Weird! Brooklyn Heights Style Blog!
I'm in. The feels too, thinking about my sister's 135 pound Bernese Mountain Dog, transported to the animal hospital for her hip replacement. What a mensch! Here's hoping he gets some of those scallion cream cheese. Bagels for a tip sometimes. I'm also singing "Here he comes to save the day! That means that Don. Monte is on the. Way!"
Don Monte's heart is the only firework NYC needs. Good grief, so many tears for me!
If Sherita was to purchase and then ignite one of these firecrackers there is no question that it would be Furious Flamingo.
Wonderful issue per always! xoxoxo
One of the guys I play tennis with has those sunglasses that clip and fold down onto his glasses. Like a baseball player flipping them down for a pop fly.
Anne gets the best quotes!
Loved this one! I saw the headline and my mind went to goofball questions too. But there’s so much heart and goodness in this profile.
As for the fireworks. Wow, I had no idea that industry had so many types of products. They’re illegal here in Los Angeles because, you know, fires, which don’t pair well with dry brush and drought. Not that people follow the law. In fact, the city literally sounds it’s exploding on July 4. I don’t love fireworks or hate them, but for all the joy they bring to some folks, they seem to bring just as much pain to people with ptsd and animals. I dunno.... blowing stuff up always seemed like a weird way to celebrate independence. Grilling and pool parties, on the other hand, is perfect!
A recent episode of Barry has an app being used to detonate a bomb. There's a funny bit where NoHo Hank accepts the terms and conditions while installing the app, and then a funnier scene where Barry has to call tech support: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Kzzg3q1YuUE
Bless this column. Do you know if the ambulance pet vet takes donations for his van? Would be happy to contribute.
Anne -- you ALWAYS come through in the clutch. The last parapraph quoting Don Montes is just wonderful. Thanks for a morning lift.
Your style interview was great also. Here is my favorite thing I thought of while reading it (this is a snippet from the silly satire movie Airplane). https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=73UfgMoWv8E
I remember growing up in New York State and the limits on fireworks. The cool kids might have a couple cherry bombs. No fun. The same mentality prevails here in MN. If you get close to the WI or ND border, the stores advertise they are selling mortars. Hmmm, shall I buy some sparklers, a fountain or a mortar
We were once in Copenhagen on New Year's Eve, and boy, do they ever allow fireworks! It was like World War III... I couldn't believe it. People go ALL OUT.
Nice story to read on July 4th. We need more stories and people like that. Thanks for sharing.
