    Last night marked 2 years since the passing of my father, who ignited my passion for pyro. Of course, I let 2 180g rockets off so he could heard and see we'd not forgotten. Drove all the way up to Sheffield from Leics today for a trip to Meadow'hell' and snook into Jimmys Fireworks (Epic) with the mum on board, so I had to behave :oops:.

    Only stopped to have a word about FOI requests and to actually see the place other than through their website. Fantastic staff, and a lovely conversation with Jimmy himself. Next thing you know I blacked out and found myself with 4x sky thrillers and a gold willow 50 shot fan cake under my arm for BFN :rolleyes:. Best thing is it was my mother who said 'oohh these sky thrillers look good, how many we getting' :eek::eek:.

    Best to start early just in case we need to stock up or mark the end of an era of consumer pyro ;).

    Let's se what you've all got for 2019...

    Only occasionally. I don't think she would appreciate watching me pay for the main stash :oops:. May have to build it up slowly over the year ;)

    Because of the demise of Kimbolton I thought I'd better stock up on some mines as no other importer seems interested in importing true mines any more. :(
    Problem is, like my stash of Sovereign mines the question is do I fire or keep? :rolleyes:

    I presume Mexican Wave is nothing like the late, great Mexican Fiesta?

    No it's a cheap little mine cake. Not even as good as Angel Dust but it's a nice filler for just over a fiver.

    Cool for a fiver.....

     
  11. I used two together last year, with the music it was quite magical and comical at the same time, almost like a tennis match with fireworks lol.

    ...any sponsors stocking this one this year?
     
  13. Brother's Angel Dust or Kimbolton's Mexican Wave? In any case @Blackpool Fireworks stock both.
