Welcome to Truthful Tuesday, a prompt originally set by PCGuyIV and one I am temporarily hosting until he wants to take it back.
Unlike Fibbing Friday, the concept is quite simple in that I ask a question and you reply honestly and truthfully.
You can either leave your reply in the comments or write your own post and pingback to this one, then leave a link in the comments so that I can find it.
With Christmas and New Year celebrations, not only did we have fireworks going off on Christmas Day, but they began at 9pm on New Year’s Eve going through to the early hours from different households.
My question this week is
Do you think the sale of fireworks should be restricted?
I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes!
In November 2020, we lost our beloved Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney. We now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of Kizzy, my GSD when Hubby and I first met so had hers done too.
On February 24th 2022 we were blessed to find Maya, a 13 week old GSD pup who has made her own place in our hearts. You can follow our training methods, photos and her growth in my blog posts.
From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives.
We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.
I think it should be restricted, because it causes serious injuries to those involved in fireworks.
The professional displays are quite something (my nephew is qualified) but IMO they should not be available to the public without a licence.
I know, I’m a killjoy.
Certainly do, they have caused fires near us on multiple occasions
There were an awful lot of unsettled dogs here.
The thing is, they don’t have to be so loud!
Our cat was freaking out, and she normally so chilled
It affects them all doesn’t it. I’m hoping Maya will continue to be OK with them.

I think fireworks shouldn’t be available to buy in local shops and Supermarkets. Only allow firework displays to be licensed and organised.
I agree with you Glyn,

The explosive ones, yes. People under 18 can’t buy them here. On the other hand, what usually happens is that an overindulgent parent drives over to Big Daddy’s Fireworks, buys several hundred dollars’ worth of them, comes home and gives them to the kids saying “have fun, and try not to blow off any fingers or set anything on fire” and doesn’t supervise their use. Which is dumb, and parents should know better. So if the parents won’t do their job…
Yep, with you all the way on that John.
