The fireworks tents are popping up like dandelions after a rain. They are next to every fast-food restaurant. They aren’t open for business yet but I expect by the middle of next week they will be. That means it won’t be long before the night=time quiet will echo with booms and bangs with a few sizzles thrown in for good measure. The appearance of the fireworks tents announced the speeding days of summer. They are almost a truer sign of summer than the hot temperatures we’re experiencing.
