We spent a lot of time this last Saturday on The Erwin Pawn Tradio Show getting ready for July 4th.  We did manage to bring a whole community of buyers and sellers together too.

I think Wednesday is about the worst day possible to have July 4th.  Who's idea was it anyway?  Tuesday might be a little worse that Wednesday but either way it throws a big dent in the festivities.

We decided to discuss fireworks amongst all the phone calls starting with The Big Question.

THE BIG QUESTION

We have a weekly poll question we ask callers before they give us their items.  I was curious with what firework plans you had.

DO YOU POP YOUR OWN FIREWORKS OR DO YOU WATCH THE CITY DISPLAY?

I know for me it is hard to pop my own due to the expense and having no where to go other than trespassing on somebody's land.  I like to watch.

33 WATCH 11 POP 1 LOVES KING GEORGE III

We had one caller say they didn't much care for fireworks. I put them in a third category reserved for Tories and Monarchists.

RULE #6

I bring you a special Rule #6 after the five primary rules of the show.  It changes every week and this time it is a constructive rule but unfortunately many will break it.

RULE #6 TAKE YOUR SPENT FIREWORK TRASH WITH YOU.

If you do choose to go shoot fireworks off yourself this Wednesday keep a few things in mind.  If you are on someone's land that you don't know you might be trespassing.  And when you are done, take your garbage with you.  It's always a sad sight on July 5th driving into town and seeing the wasteland of discarded and used fireworks.  Have your fun but do your part!

See you next Saturday for The Erwin Pawn Tradio Show!
