|Last winter was bitter cold and tons of snow.
I thought I would get a start on outside lights that I could manage to avoid working in bitter cold.
I hung a couple of strings on the trellises and waited for SIL to come home from travels,three days.
That as 3 weeks ago. I asked for a "confrence with the managment) lol and asked if he could hook up the cords and set the auto timer.
That was done for Thanksgiving day. The Sunday after both SIL and DD did the icicle lights on the house. and bought the tree, which stayed on the deck until Sunday.
I'm excited to see th tree and what it meant,but it was a week before the tree came into the house.
My job is to hang the lights while SIL and DD watch football.
This took 2 hours over 600 lights and I was exhausted.I went to plug the lights into the extention cord and realized I had created another geezer moment.
You guessed it. I was presented with the plug that was thewrong end,no prongs to connect,the whole tree had to be unwound and redone.
I was so peeved I nearly killed the cat.

| Jo Anne you are SUCH a riot!
At least you turned around & re-did it the correct way. I'm afraid by that time I would have cheated & run the extension cord up into the tree & plugged it in where ever I found the prong end.
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.

|The thought did occurr to me.
DD wants to reposition some of the strings because I ran short at the bottom of the back.
I dont want to touch the tree. She can do what she wants.
FYI.I bought 6 boxes of LED lights 60 lights each. LED's dont go as far as regular. The strings are shorter and the lights are closer together.
