That sounds like you had a wonderful - and memorable - time. :)

I did indeed.  Interesting experience last summer, too: I was out in Spokane visiting a friend who lives in nearby Cheney.  They do a big outdoor "Royal Fireworks" concert there.  I was listening to the Handel and watching the skyrockets, when suddenly a big meteor streaked across the sky, above the rising moon.  I guess we earthlings weren't the only ones letting off fireworks that evening!
