Popping Stars

“Mama.  I want to go to the place with the popping stars.”

Pause. “What?!”

“Popping stars!”

Pause again.  Then, light bulb.  “Sweetheart, do you mean fireworks!?”

“Yeah.  That right.”

“Yes.  We will go see the popping stars tomorrow.”

And we did, and then some.  It was such a treat to find ourselves in a small town that had an interest in summer entertainment.  Though not necessarily everyone’s cup of tea, we had concerts on the pier, a kids activity fair, vendors selling hand made wares/art, and popping stars.  Not too shabby for a small former mill town by the sea, and a nice change for us, after living in big cities the past 5+ years.

Hope your holiday was full of popping stars and joyful celebrations.
