Actually the fireworks have started pretty late this year even for around here. Perhaps they are getting too expensive even for fools with money to burn. I know we all let off a few penny bangers when we were kids before bonfire night, but they are like sticks of dynamite these days.

Yes I remember them and sparklers, I remember you could get a bad burn from them if you got hold of the wrong end of one that had just been used.

Lynne

Where they the little volcano shaped ones that shot out all coloured lights with the occasional little bang. I know that when we were walking in the streets in our teens we used to drop jumping jacks behind and girls that we passed and wait for the screams.

So it was you was it Phil, they were like heat seeking missiles, they found you wherever you went.
