Happy New Year - NOW DUCK AND COVER!!!

Pictures from the end of Sammy's display. I missed the really good stuff.

Quinhagak rang in the new year this morning much like the rest of the world, but with its own little twist. After a few of us teachers finished watching "Public Enemy" with Johnny Depp, as John Dillenger. We stepped outside, just five minutes before the stroke of midnight. Much like the shoot em' movie we just witnessed on screen, Quin was ablaze with gunfire. I got to admit the gunfire raised the heart rate a little, because it sounded like 5 opening day deer hunts wrapped in one. I sank into the shadows and watched a most impressive fireworks display put on by the corporation store and our neighbor Sammy. Sammy owns the video store and according to reports had $4,000 of the "good stuff" as I like to call it. As a guy who blows a lot of money of the 4th, I got to say I was more than impressed. Maybe jealous?? idk. One thing the fireworks did do, was distract us from gunfire that was accompanying it. Kids kept wanting to know why aren't you shooting Jim. I didn't tell them the real reason. I was hiding. Happy New Year everyone! Here's to a great 2010!

    Did you catch the midnight four-wheeler "follow the leader" game as well? We counted at least 30 or more vehicles in it.
