My wife thinks...

Recommended Posts

...We don't have enough channels...
...We need more CCRs... (And I don't have the 3 we own operating yet!)
...Blinky light season is the bestest time of the year...
...I need to make my own extension cords now instead of buying them...
...We need a larger TV...
...That I should get a new computer because I bought her one for her birthday...
...Our kids should move out!

We're lucky that we both have solid jobs in this economy and any woman who thinks the way she does must be a Goddess of some sort!

She is a goddess! I met her last night! Her and her son stopped by to see MY LIGHTS! I was flattered! Was even complimented, and this coming from someone who has a great display! Also was pleasantly surprised when she made a donation towards our food drive! Much appreciated :)

She sounds like a very wise woman and I think it would be a good idea for you to take all her advice.

They enjoyed your show. She's attending our son's graduation today from A school in the Navy down there.

Howard,

If you should decide to get rid of her, because of all of her "crazy talk", send her my way.

Get rid of her? Nah... I'm looking into cloning. I think I could make a fortune!

I've got a good wife too. She's enjoying the lights as well with this being our first year. I've been unhappy trying to get decent videos of my display and trying to figure out what to get for a video camera. After searching stores to see what's available that's good at video and pictures, She let me get a Canon Rebel T1i DSLR that does 1080p HD video. I started playing with it last night and it's absolutely amazing. We got it at Sam's Club for $800, comes with two lenses, nice camera bag and memory. Best Buy doesn't come close to this deal! Although Best Buy did have a video camera that would be cool to play with, it shoots 3D video, could be very interesting with a light show, but wouldn't be able to post online I don't think. Anyhow, can't wait to video the show tonight, we just got snow!

I've watched my wife go from rolling her eyes as "Christmas stuff" started arriving in July ("another box from that light o rama place.."...), to yesterday her mentioning, as she was watching mini-trees light up and (finally..) the LOR piece of the display take shape..."...so when you do this next year and expand..."

I think she's hooked..or getting close to it...:cool::cool::cool:

We still haven't made the yearly visit to Hollywood Studios and watched the Osborne Light Show, and seeing that is what got her (and especially, me..) going down the LOR path..

This year might take it to a whole 'nother level..:P
