forestcats tomato salad was devoured in no time; I knocked back a couple of ciders; a large pack of kids none older than ten raced in and out, sometimes paced by young parents and sometimes not. It was a delightful pandemonium.
As dusk deepened into night the whole neighborhood exploded into fireworks, not unlike Chino does. Some were spectacular, others irritating. Later on, as we drove home there were fireworks in all directions.
The whole menagerie was on hand when we walked into the house, and stayed close by us all night...poor doggies...
Dungeonmaster is having a show tonight at AnimeExpo, so we'll be off in a while. I hope to meet up with hendel there.
