So I asked several and everybody wanted to go. But most of them are boys as it turns out. We all got permission, what we have to wear, covid info etc etc. I can bring around 10 people my brother said because no one on their team is having friends or family come. So it really feels pretty cool to have everyone asking me about my brother, fireworks and stuff. They all think it's so strange that I know about how that little world works and none of them do, ha!
I think they are shooting near the mall but not positive, my brother is sending me text with where he has to meet me. I think he has to meet me somewhere else then bring us to where they shoot. Should be a fun time. I'll try and let everyone know how much fun it is, is anyone else going into DC?
- Thanks for the Memories
The brocade section was their best ever and they do that at every show. Loud is their trademark, and they didn't disappoint. I am very proud of my big brother.
One of the "boys" had a very nice camera and took some gorgeous photos. He's suppose to be sending some to all of us who went, Ill try to get them up asap.
- And got the T-shirt
A few years ago, I took four teenagers to Canada, and the one place I was determined to go was to the International Fireworks Festival. A different country puts on the fireworks each night, and we lucked out and got China. They were spectacular.
I am told from a sound source that the sorting facility in Richmond is being shut down and mail will be sent to some other sorting facility to eventually get back to our town. But our local guys are getting mail dumps that are unsorted and have to be sorted by hand!!!!! This is like having the post office go back 30 or 40 years. Automation had resulted in carriers being able to deliver to more customers so their routes grew ever bigger, they now not only have all the packages to deliver but also have to do sorting, along with delivering the mail! They get a salary. Are expected to work all this extra stuff. No extra pay. Local management has carriers ill and quitting, not being able to do their job. Local management is suffering too.
DeJoy should be made to deliver mail himself! Ripping out the sorting machines is just another nail in the coffin.
One possibility is criminal investigation and prosecution to get rid of him. Millions of dollars needs to go into repair of the system.
