I suck at taking pics of fireworks

My goodness... Not a single picture of mine came out good from the fireworks Wednesday night. Here's the best one:

Unbelievable. Every single shot sucked... Bleh, I'll get another chance on Wednesday night next week. :) If you didn't get the e-vite, let me know.
But this vid clip turned out ok. Actually, all the vid clips, except for the finale turned out ok. Which really sort of sucks because the finale was awesome. I'm not going to post any more because they range from 14 to 32 MB each. I have only 100 MB on my webspace, you know... Maybe it's about time I actually purchased some from a web host. Always was interested in getting If you can't download the video fully, it's because it's still uploading. Wow, this is slow....
Met up with Lawson again, who I hadn't seen since Christmas Conference. Great guy. Hanging out with friends and lying on the beach got me thinking about how summer seems to be so different from the other seasons. Unique because I was trained on summer vacation. Kids always got it in school. We still get it in university. Of course, you have summer school options in high school and university, but summer still seems to have this carefree aspect, even if you're in school. I blame it on the sun. Reflecting on past summers, I wonder how summers will change in the future, as I get more settled in life. I wonder. But I can't wait for the winter to come and the ski season to start. :D
Summer of '69
Bryan Adams
I got my first real six-string
Bought it at the five-and-dime
Played it till my fingers bled
It was the summer of '69
Me and some guys from school
Had a band and we tried real hard
Jimmy quit and Jody got married
I shoulda known we'd never get far
Oh when I look back now
That summer seemed to last forever
And if I had the choice
Ya - I'd always wanna be there
Those were the best days of my life
Ain't no use in complainin'
When you got a job to do
Spent my evenin's down at the drive-in
And that's when I met you
Standin' on your mama's porch
You told me that you'd wait forever
Oh and when you held my hand
I knew that it was now or never
Those were the best days of my life
Back in the summer of '69
Man we were killin' time
We were young and restless
We needed to unwind
I guess nothin' can last forever - forever, no
And now the times are changin'
Look at everything that's come and gone
Sometimes when I play that old six-string
I think about ya, wonder what went wrong
Standin' on your mama's porch
You told me it would last forever
Oh the way you held my hand
I knew that it was now or never
Those were the best days of my life
Back in the summer of '69
