More than ten years ago, I was living in an apartment in the “artsy” section of downtown.

 Fourth of July was always a fun time. Back then, even though most big firecrackers were illegal in the state of Michigan, people found a way to get them.  

I remember I had to work the next morning and trying to go to sleep, but some set off M-80’s into the night. (People do love their firecrackers!)  

Of course, I did enjoy standing outside and watching other neighbors setting off the “above the treetop” fireworks. Quite often, more than one person set them off at the same time.

I liked “dueling displays!”
