A very special summer story
A very special summer story

Remember be careful if you’re planning a fireworks party especially when alcohol is present.  A few years ago when I lived in North Carolina, We celebrated America’s Independence by throwing a big July 4th party. A very good friend of mine had consumed far too much booze and trying to be funny, placed a firecracker down his pants…well it blew off his private part. A sparrow grabbed it and flew away.  I will never forget that image.  One of my neighbors ran to his house, got his gun and shot the sparrow in an effort to retrieve part of my buddy. We rushed the naughty part and bloodied friend to the ER. Unfortunately, the Doctors were unable to reconnect it.

Moral of story:  Don’t mix fireworks with alcohol. Keep all your body parts and be safe. Nature has provided sparrows with enough food!
