Wolfeboro fireworks July 4 2019 Anura Guruge Canon EOS RP

In the end it was good, ‘not bad’ though 15-minutes in I did say “this is so boring“! By that stage 90% of the fireworks had been single, hand-fired, pop-pop-pop starbursts and when this is your second fireworks show in 24-hours there is only so many starbursts you can stomach — especially if you are looking at them through the viewfinder of a camera.

Yes, Wolfeboro spends MORE on its fireworks than Alton and that is HOW it should be given that Wolfeboro, with property owners like Mitt Romney, the ‘Black and Decker’ family and the Marriotts, is insanely wealthy.

Another great night for fireworks, like the night before. WARM (in the high 70F) and cloudless. It does not get any better. Quite a big crowd, though we got our usual spot, on top of the grass bank, right across from where they set off the fireworks, without any problems — though we only got there 25-minutes before the start. It was a good night overall. Wolfeboro did GOOD. Bravo and thank YOU.

I took about 300 pictures. Then I mercilessly deleted about 100. There are only so many starbursts that you want to keep.

I know roughly where his mansion is in Wolfeboro, N.H.

It is by Winter Harbor — near what used to be the quaint, sloping Wolfeboro (Lakes Region) Airport.

He has, for obvious reasons, never invited me to his place for ‘drinks’ (non-alcoholic and non-caffeinated) since I am, in his rich books, a 47%er. No harm. I wouldn’t have him around for drinks either. Given that I circulate in strange circles, I do, however, know folks who have been to his mansion. I gather he likes to give ladies ‘architectural’ tours of the house and show them all the bedrooms he has. Bully for him.

The Marriotts, fellow Mormons with the Mittens, have a palace close-by, with a HUGE, and I mean HUGE, granite, 3 berth boathouse. I have delivered takeout to them when I had WOWNH — Waiters on Water (WOW). Mittens never ordered any takeout.

Well that looks like Lake Winnipesaukee in the Summer for multiple reasons: the gray gabled roof on the boathouse, the lush greenery, the STONES all along the bank and the low hills in the background.

It is a shame he didn’t give Wolfeboro and our lake a plug in this picture.
