We did the Fourth of July at my parents' house, which now functions as my dad's house. Vic's family and my own were both there (for the most part; our son Mike and Vic's brother Steve weren't there).
Vic, his sister Janet, my sister Gillian, and I decided against going to the fireworks, when my sister Helen's family set out for Stage Fort. But then Vic and Janet decided to go, and my brother Myron decided to join them. What is it about the lure of fireworks?
