Hey all, I've been gone away for a while but I just had to share what happened to me this week.
I've been friends with this guy that owns a fireworks store for many,many years. He has always cut me some great deals on fireworks ($300.00 is not an unusual price for me because the whole neighborhood gets invited)
Any way; I wanted to do something really
nice for him this year because he has been so good to me, so...I gave him my 1:48 Ton Notebloom Apollo!!! Right?.. so, I didn't want anything for it but he had his son pack up a box of fireworks and set it in my jeep. We said our thanks and goodbyes and I left. When I got home I was shocked and delighted to tears when I saw he had given me a pre-release licensed vendor's perk: A market test mortar that fires cartridges that look like GIANT chrome-plated shotgun shells!!!! the company literature states a $200.00 suggested retail. Wow.
But that's not all; I went back today (5 days since) just to see how things were going and to buy fireworks for real. He was so happy, He said word had gotten around about the rocket and everybody, other vendors,police,firemen (fire dept.s sell fireworks for fund raising here),and bunches of kids had come in just to see the "Giant Rocket this guy's got!"
It was great advertisement for him, and it made me very proud. I just had to tell somebody!!Thanks for listening...Happy 4th to everyone!!
