Excuse me, but I decorated some of the porch. I don't have the help I need to hang the icicle lights, but I hung the lighted wreath and put a lighted pot of greenery out there. And I hung some giant ornaments.

Excuse me, but when you posted a picture of your deck, I saw trees and trees and more trees. I think we had as many leaves as that back in 1990 at another address. It was crazy.

In about 30 minutes I'll turn Christmas lights on. My timer is somewhere in the garage; I haven't found it yet.

Excuse me, but the 35 bags picked up are only in the front yard and one side yard. There is no house right behind us so hubby blows the backyard leaves away. The other side yard is small and kept "au naturel" If we picked all of our leaves up, the bag count would be 70 - 80 bags!!!

Excuse me, but I'm getting tired just reading this, om!

My mother called today and she said the lady I hired to help her went to Dollar General and picked up two fifty percent off 4-ft. Christmas trees for her. One is white and the other green. She says she'll put the green one on a dresser at her front window. Excuse me, but I don't know know how an 89-yr.-old expects to do that! And how can she reach to decorate it? I hope she doesn't fall! I hope they're really three-foot trees!

Well, I ran out of money, so no more hired help --- Mom says she can ask a friend for help and that the trees are four feet tall! Why, didn't she settle for a three-foot-tree to put on the dresser, I wonder.

excuse me, but the other day I was watching the news, and a giant headline appeared "miserable weather" about the snow which I was very much looking forward to and which I don't consider miserable. Others may, yes, but isn't journalism supposed to be neutral and not express their own opinions?

Excuse me... but my daughter was just involved in an incident on the highway. A truck passed her, and as he did, something flew off the top of the truck and crashed down on her car roof - shattering her sunroof. Glass flew all over the inside of the car. She tried to flag him down, but he wouldn't pull over. Luckily, she only has a small cut on her hand and is now talking to the police. Just another "normal" day in our house.

Excuse me, Mistletoe, but you're not the only one with frequent light issues. While getting my outdoor lights out on Saturday, I had to throw away 2 strands of lights for the very same reason. Thankfully, Home Depot had their 100-light sets on sale for $1.88, so I bought 5 sets and used them all!:gingerhouse:

Excuse me, but I am definitely missing something here. I paid over $200 for the lights I just bought (from Target)!

When I took the lights down last winter I threw out all the strands that were half out- I didn't want to take the chance they'd move again and I wouldn't be able to tell that those were faulty strands. When I brought up the lights this year 75% were bad, just from sitting in storage. Instead of trying to replace the bad ones, I decided to just start fresh with all new "heavy duty" strands, since I knew the problem was the wire and not the bulbs. I bought 7 reels of 400 lights each and decided to get a box of 100, in case I needed just a little extra somewhere. Well, I got all the reels on there and was starting to put the boxed ones up when the boxed strand kept going on and off, depending on how the wire bent. So, APPARENTLY, "heavy duty" mean ABSOLUTELY NOTHING. My only hope is that the strands that were on the reels are in better shape from not being kinked. The lights that are up look nice, but as I know, a good wind can upset the wires and they can shut off at the most inopportune times!

I wish it wasn't so, but I'm glad that you two share in my misery. lol

Excuse me mistletoe...but happy to share in your misery!!! I set up my outside lights today and ended up throwing out several strands that I know were fine when I boxed them up last year. Anyway, since we took down several large shrubs this year, I had to rethink my traditional design. I ended up putting up far fewer lights than in the past. I was in a rush to get them up today, with the snow storm coming tomorrow morning. At least I should save on energy costs!

Hi. do you bring your lights from where ever they are stored and turn them on straight away? If so that might be the reason they blow.
We always bring ours in about 2-3 weeks before so they can climatise to the room temp, just a thought..:elf3:
