IdFLQ - ENGLAND

RULE BRITANNIA!

OK finally the fireworks competition has officially begun. I'm sorry, but Spain, you sucked! heh

England tonight was 1000 times better tonight. And they had to contend with competing lightning, contstant threatening thunder showers and high winds. And from our vantage point we also had to deal with the smoke and the stink of the fireworks, and still within 5 minutes we were already indicating just how much better these were to last week.

The newlyweds Graham and Tony came over to view the pyrotechnic display with us. We had a chance to reminisce about their wedding all these 3 days ago heh. Can I just say again how happy we are for them, and just how much fun we had! straight weddings should oly be as wonderful and fabulous! :-) I made an impromptu Sangria and they brought over a cheesecake so it was a fab-u night to be sure.

I again took some pics of the fireworks, and was really not expecting much. In fact, I thought these would be worse because of the haze and the smoke backdraft, but was pleasantly surprised.

Now keep in mind when I take these pics, it's from my digital poop nothing camera. On a tripod, with the flash off. When I click the button it only takes a picture about 45 seconds later. So I basically just keep the camera aimed and click the shutter button as soon as it allows me and enjoy watching them, in the here and now. It's only after I load the pics onto my lap top that I see what was captured.

I took 55 pics tonight and only 10 am I sharing with you. But can I just say that the last pic impressed the shit even outta me! And the boys muchos likey too! LIFE magazine pics these are not, but they're fun. And I think give you an idea of what we experienced.

Enjoy...

Great fireworks pics.
Glad Graham & Tony are enjoying wedded bliss. SO FAR!! And whatcha mean straight weddings can only be as fun!!? Hey, my wedding was fun... or should I say "our wedding" but then again that day was all about ME!! lol

BTW, Whats Tony & Graham doing in town? What ever happened to the honeymoon?

heheh! I knew I'd be able to reel in at least one breeder! hehehe Was just a joke. well mostly... how many straight weddings have a dance floor with shirtless good looking men? hmmmmmm? ;-)

It's true what you say... with a straight wedding, it's all about the bride... hehehe At a gay wedding it's an even split. I've been to quite a few of both and this is one streotype that does not waiver...

G&T are back to work. They were in Cuba back in April, sort-of-a pre-honeymoon. And they are off to Paris in Oct. Unfortunately Tony gets screwed on vacation at Fed/Ex. He's been there 10 years but still near the bottom of the seniority ladder... so he gets nothing in the summer...

The fireworks were great last night and the music was F-U-N FUN! The Beatles, Nina Simone, U2... Eclectic and entertaining. We waz dancin! heh

Can't wait for Mexico next Wednesday.

there's also fireworks in the Old Port on Sunday for Canada Day, and yea... we can see those clear as a bell from the roof! YEE HAW!

geeeeez, a bunch of good-looking shirtless men on the dance floor sounds AWESOME! Too bad most of them don't like WOMEN!! As they say all good looking dudes are either married or gay!! dammit!
