In Gloucester: Fireworks. Rockport: We light the outhouse on fire.

Small dragon comes out of the outhouse. Becomes much bigger and rids Rockport of arm hair.

Even from this distance, this bonfire is making Rubber Duck cry propylene tears
Everyone who used to be closer now has no hair on their arms. That is when you move back.

CAN YOU GUESS WHAT TODAY IS??

It’s always amazing to drive around town the morning of the Fish Town Horribles Parade and see all the empty chairs and decorations! All of these shots were taken with my iPhone while fighting through traffic to drop off stuff at our GMG party corner. So this one is for all those folks who are not home, or moved out of town, enjoy! Now stop by the GMG tent and party with us!!!

VIDEO: STIHL CHAINSAW SINGS THE NATIONAL ANTHEM by Craig Kimberley – HAPPY 4TH OF JULY!!

For all you proud Americans, this is another video I just completed for STIHL. I always enjoy working with everyone at this amazing company, but getting a chance to put Real-STIHL factory workers into this project was truly special. Even if you have never owned a chainsaw, or know what an American built STIHL product looks like, you’ll enjoy this! (click the gear on lower right for HD video)
