Spectacular, Spectacular!

Happy 4th of July to all the guys in Grand Haven, home of what is almost the World's Largest Musical Fountain.

Each night during the summer the 'fountain' gives a concert. It selects a bunch of music, shares some wisdom, tells a few jokes, all the while patterning hundreds of water jets in a co-ordinated light show. The 4th of July concert is the season's highlight: tonight will end with a huge fireworks display which has occasionally... ahem... gone awry (locals call it 'the burning of Dewey Hill').

You couldn't make this stuff up.

Best of luck tonight guys!

We, as the ever so smart americans, stayed away from the god aweful sight of Grand Haven in the summertime. Far too many "fudgies" for us to dare venturing into the throws of insanity they call toursit season. We instead ventured up to the Great White North to camp, get completely shit-faced and trapse around the woods. Good times!

Stupid American! It would be like me to add a comment before signing in! Must have been a blonde moment...

Ha ha!! Brilliant. Oh I miss getting trashed and trapsing around the woods with you guys!
I'm not even gonna comment on the blonde thing - you know you're talking to a 'natural', right????

We miss having you trapsing in the woods all slocker upped! Good times... On a more SERIOUS subject - We haven't had any Blair Witch sightings to note. Gosh do we ever miss the way stick figures would just show up in ever so mysterious ways! We must not be summoning up enough "evil" kharma lately! With the likes of our group you wouldn't think that would take much effort. :0)
