4th of July and Brain Cancer

When Ted and I first moved to our neighborhood, it was extremely quiet, which worked out well when he got his brain tumor because sound was a very big problem for him.  The neighborhood is still profoundly quiet with the exception of the 4th of July.  It's as if my quiet and mild mannered neighbors save it all up for one week of the year. Each year it gets louder and louder. Even though Ted is doing well on the tumor front, he does have hearing issues, so when we stepped outside to take a look at what the neighbors were up to, he had to cover his ears and go inside, where it was still loud, but at least he could take his hearing aids out and replace them with earplugs.  

Warning, this video is loud.  If you have a dog nearby or have the same sound issues with a brain tumor, you may want to turn the sound down. These clips were taken over a five hour period of non-stop noise July 4, 2015.
