First rate idea!!!!!!!! I'm going to remember that Allison.
I am a strong believer in the simple fact is that what matters in this life is how we treat others. I think that's what living is all about. Not what I've done in my life but how I've treated others.

Jae.. Randy said he will pay shipping if you want to get rid of any C-9 or C-7 size light strings... we bought a bunch of led retro fit bulbs... that go into the old bigger size light sockets.. not sure what we are doing with the standard light bulb size led lights I bought.. didn't realize they were that big.. no wonder they were so cheap.. they are supposed to be a gold color.. we will figure something out.. they actually came from Linens and Things.. it was buy 2 get 2 free.. so we now have 200 lights we have no idea what we are doing with Blinking

Oh Allison, I have no idea about sizes. I have boxes of the stuff and my problem is none other than that since I have become this unwell, I am not able to do even general maintenance things. After the 1st of the year, when I have a treatment plan, I will know more. If I get that far, once I am able, you can have every tangled light string, replacement bulb, and any rotating motors or the like that I find. And, if you want that mess, I will pay shipping.

I DO want to keep the REAL old lights though like they had in the 50s with REAL light bulbs. They probably cost a fortune to run but they have a certain collectable charm for me.

How would I tell what a C-9 or a C-7 is?
