The Gods Were Angry

This is the "Tiki Mon". Last night in the middle of our fireworks show he decided to be difficult, tipped over and shot his guts in the wrong direction - namely toward the spectators. Luckily no one was injured, but it made for a memorable fourth. I haven't seen Christy move that fast since she found a raccoon lurking in the backyard.

We got the last laugh, though... We ended up using his carcass as a launch pad for several other fireworks. I threw in some strobes and bloomers, and his eyes lit up with fire! I am a little nervous about retribution. This is kind of like that Brady Bunch episode from Hawaii where they found the tiki god necklace and were cursed. I'm sure Alice will step in if I'm in danger...
