thx ... at haloween I put black lights in ... got the colored bulbs at my local Ace Hardware, its a small store but I still get lost looking at all the cool stuff ... got some LED lights at Lowes for the little tree in the front yard, Fred Meyer for the house lights, K-mart for the gift boxes ... Christmas is fun to decorate for, just wish I was better at putting my lights away each year, seems like I end up replacing the stuff b/c I put it away poorly.

gave Rockman a hand the other night putting his up. Man, on the top of his roof, with 30mph winds at 9pm, is not a fun place to be! :eek: he'll hopefully have pics of his up soon. any of you guys put up with those 'icicle' lights? they look nice, but i don't know how many of you can stand to constantly dig them out of the gutter when the wind blows them around.

We'll have the rest of the stuff up this weekend...doing anything on Sunday Sassy? :D Gotta get all the stuff out of the garage...can't get the cars in this week. Well, we did, just a cluster though.

Neighbors were wondering why we put out alot of the decorations but haven't turned them on yet. We told them the village required us to get a permit first as they needed to coordinate with Com-ed on peak time availability. :noface:

True or not, it's pretty funny...Make sure to read story at bottomÖ

images.quickblogcast.com/3/9/3/5/1/225556-215393/x_mas.jpg?a=46

"Good news is that I truly out did myself this year with my Christmas decorations. The bad news is that I had to take him down after 2 days. I had more people come screaming up to my house than ever.Great stories. But two things made me take it down.

First, the cops advised me that it would cause traffic accidents as they almost wrecked when they drove by.

Second, a 55 year old lady grabbed the 75 pound ladder almost killed herself putting it against my house and didn't realize it was fake until she climbed to the top (she was not happy). By the way, she was one of many people who attempted to do that. My yard couldn't take it either. I have more than a few tire tracks where people literally drove up my yard."
