I am a dummy
January 1, 2018 10:18am CST
We went to bed around ten last night. I suddenly woke up a little later. I heard this weird noise, kind of a thump, thump. It sounded like it was inside my wardrobe closet. I was really puzzled. So, I woke hubby, asked him to listen. He looked at the clock and told me "Happy New Year". It was the neighbor setting off fire works. I forgot. So I told him "Happy New Year, and we went back to sleep.

Well I'm glad the fireworks weren't inside your closet . We were up at midnight and had been hearing fireworks all night long anyway . . . I assume it had been going on til much later (as it always does) but we were able to get to sleep and not wake up to it.

@GardenGerty If people are used to being able to do something, they sometimes really resent it if the activity is sounded made illegal. We haven't been allowed fireworks for many, many years so mostly people are okay with it. You can't even buy them unless perhaps you get them from overseas online.
