Going dark

I am very sad to say my display will not go on this year. My wife asked me to leave and take the lights down and take them with me. Thank you to everyone that has helped me over the last few years. There are so many great folks here. I will try to keep an eye on the site.

Sorry to hear your news. That really bites.

If there's any good news, and yes I know it's grasping at straws, at least she let you take the lights. I had a similar situation occur a few years before I started blinky-flashy and I had to fight like hell for the lights. Never mind they were incans and most of them would never again feel the surge of electrons through their wires - but it was the principle.

Good luck to you. Keep in touch. Just because she asked you to leave doesn't mean we're doing it.

Papa,

I sure hate to hear that. And just before the holidays. That sucks.

But I hope you find a silver lining in it somewhere.

I hope there is another family member or friend that can help and maybe provide a place that needs the lights and your talent to make them blink.

Hang in there my friend.

And as mentioned, please stay in touch.

You do have some friends here so don't forget about us. ;)

Sorry to hear about you going dark, my thoughts and prayers for you and your family in this time of turmoil.

 

It does however remind me of a saying my divorced friends are fond of:

 

Do you know why divorce is expensive?

 

 

Because it's worth it.

Papa and shfr26. Damn that sucks! sorry to hear about both of you. Both of the old guys up the street from me have had their wives leave them now that they are retired. What is this thing about them waiting till the guy is retired and then bugging out. Both of these guys are in the house and the wives left them.

 

Again papa and shfr, sorry about the timing of this happening. And splitting of the sheets is never a really good thing. But sometimes it is for the best. Throw everything in a box for a few years before selling it all.

Papa,

         sorry to hear of your troubles. It's always darkest before the dawn as the saying goes.

Yes you do have friends here. Do not forget about us and we will not forget about you.

Try to make the best of your holidays and keep in touch.

Anyone think it was the lights themselves that got asked to leave, Papa and Pete were just the ones who were tasked with hauling the lights away? Just kidding guys, that sucks, especially as said earlier, right before the holidays.

Tell the BEOTCH to leave.   Why is it that the guy has to leave the house.  Screw that.  you want a divorce you know where the door is.

Ditto. He or She that request divorce is the one who has to leave the house. Might reduce the knee jerk decision to get a divorce. I think a lot of marriages end because of deciding in a moment of passion.

Well I requested my divorce and kept the house too. My ex couldn't afford it. Plus she was the one screwin around. So out the door she went.

 

Either way it's tough, especially with kids involved, which Papa has.

 

I'm prayin for ya brother. Be tough and stay strong.

I've been divorced a couple of times. each is no fun. Move on, find sommeone who just wants to live together, in your own place and do your light thing. Don't look back either...not worth the effort. I feel for you, truly and I understand all too well.

I have been going through a divorce also the last couple of years...currently in contempt of court because I have no money to pay the ex her court ordered "alimony for life"...just waiting for the judge to order me to sell my lights and stuff and give her the money...

14 years ago we got a business from my wifes uncle. It has always been i her name even though I have always done all the work. From customer acquisition , advertising, book work and actual doing jobs. Now I can not prove income. I can not even rent an apartment with cash. I am far to old to live with family I just don't know what t do. I need the help of someone much wiser than myself.

Thats a depressing status report alright.  I hope you find the help you need.  My ex put me through the wringer too. 

Are you not going to work at the business anymore?   It will fall apart on both of you wont it?   Since you do the books, cant you start paying yourself a salary as an employee.  Your wife will get the leftover after expenses.

It is a swimming pool business no work now. I can start paying myself but you have to have a history. I do not want to forge documents.

I have been told a lot of dishonest ways to do this even by property managers, but thats no who I am.
