Fireworks at the Church

Today I have to go and inspect a load of fireworks.....

The Vicar is well cool as he knows I am predominantly Pagan and not a Christian, and dosn`t hassle me on religion at all...he just gives me ?120 to buy fireworks with and leaves me to it....

Today I have to go and inspect a load of fireworks.

Nine years ago I stoppped and then ran a firework show at the local church, they were sending rockets straight into the air and they were coming back down on the crowd, also they were putting full size fireworks in seed trays with only 5cm of sand in the bottom and one of them fell over so I grabbed the firework and threw it over the wall to safety,
The vicar asked me to take over and have done the show every year since.

The Vicar is well cool as he knows I am predominantly Pagan and not a Christian, and dosn`t hassle me on religion at all...he just gives me ?120 to buy fireworks with and leaves me to it....

This year the Vicar is on holiday and the Warden is in charge of the church duties, This guy is an ex builder and used to swear and cuss, smoke and drink, but not anymore.

Anyway he rang me up and said I am still doing the fireworks but don`t need to go and buy any as he has bought a huge amount of them from a "mate" on the cheap...hmmmm I says, (thinking of professional type fireworks) and asked what are they like ?
Oh he says they are great ...they are really big! and there`s more than enough to do three years worth of displays...hence the inspection.

I have just rang the Vicarage to get a time to see the firworks and find the Vicar is back, he says that the fireworks are in the church hall and come down 20:30Hrs and you will like them as they are very big...Hmmm does the Church insurance policy cover a small scale explosives dump? and if it goes bang, is it an act of God?

Thats it for now.
