I'm in Lake Ridge Run on SW 107th. Hope to have mine up and on tonight except my Mega Tree. That may not be complete until Thursday afternoon. 107.1

Gary, will try to see yours as well. I was over there until a year ago - Greenbriar Kingsridge.

Tom,

If the Truck is in the Driveway, I will be there.  Knock on the door and we can compare notes.

The white Incans on the Mega Tree Star are ones you gave me last year.

Thanks, Tom. I hope to go live on the 1st. That's my birthday and try to get done by then. We are forecasted to have decent weather this weekend and I've got my pixel tree up and my 10 ft led tree. I guess I could call it my "mini mega " tree.

....my birthday..... my "mini mega " tree.

Mike, with Tom: Happy birthday...

Hopefully I finish my setup on Friday. One of my sons just bought a house in Piedmont. I'll be helping him with his first static display Saturday. Then my father just bought a house in Mustang and setting up his static display Sunday. So when this weekend is over, I'll definitely be ready for some good shows to watch. I'll add yours to my must see list. It will be my first viewing of a MMM Tree.

Thanks for the early birthday wishes.  I'll be out in the yard this weekend getting everything wired up and ready to go.  I pre-checked all my network settings for my e1.31 stuff and ironed out a couple of bugs with a couple of the 27 channel dmx controllers.  I didn't have time this year to add the pixel arches I wanted to do but that gives me something to do for next year.

I here ya Mike,

I'm wanting to add some simple arches and haven't done that yet. Still time to do so though.

 

So here I am, built my show and added a couple new songs, everything up and start running a test. Sitting in my car at the end of the driveway, first song underway and a beer in hand (spare next to me). No, I'm not driving anywhere.

Then I get a call (phone hasn't rang all day, so really?)

Well it ended up being Red, another LOR guy here locally. I have helped him out in the past couple months. A real nice guy.

He said, "I hope I'm not bothering you but is this a good time to talk?"

I told him, "Well sure, I'm just sitting here testing my light show."

Anyway, it was a deal with assigning Unit I.D. to a new controller he got. Got him fixed up but we visited some more while I was looking at my lights dance with the radio on low volume. Then after I got him fixed up, I watched the rest of the show. Then I told myself, I gotta start over :)

So I sat out there until the show started and watched the whole thing. Looked good, but I ran out of beer.

So I went back inside (while the show started over) got another beer.

Went back out to check out a new song for this year (coming up next) and ended up watching practically the whole show again.

I thought I would go for round 3 but then I thought, my kitchen pass has probably expired. Better make a deposit so I am done for the evening.

But I could sit out there all night just about, checking out the lights.

 

And it's only test night. LOL

Glad you're up and running! I had planned on working in the yard today after work but had to catch up on some things around the house. With my wife still recovering from extensive surgery and a heart attack there's not much she can do right now. I'll be hard at it through the weekend!

OK, OK, OK... As I said before, I'm not even finished setting up my props. Tonight, I'm sitting here trying to put the finishing touches on a few song sequences. My wife just walked in, who earlier this month said that I have planned way too many songs for the show. Well - she just said, " I know you've been working on Pentatonix's Mary Did You Know for yourself, and I really don't want to stress you, but have you heard Pentatonix's Little Drummer Boy? That song would be awesome."

 

Really???   Really???   Really???

 

All my hope is in rolling the dice with Brian Bruderer....

Sorry to hear Mike,

I didn't know about your wife's heart attack. I sure hope she is okay and recovers fully and quickly.

 

Do you need some help?

 

My prayers are with her, you and family/friends.

 

Tom

Daniel, gotta love a wife that is inspired enough to want more songs. :)

Thanks, Tom. I should be able to get everything done with the weekend having good weather. I've got my big props up and my roofline is easily done in a couple of hours. I'm just glad I got all my sequences tweaked already. I don't see how folks do a Halloween show and Christmas!

I'm in Lake Ridge Run on SW 107th. Hope to have mine up and on tonight except my Mega Tree. That may not be complete until Thursday afternoon. 107.1

Gary

Gary - awesome job - loved the combo tree.

I had your music tuned in almost to 104 & Penn. Mine doesn't reach my corner. What brand & model are you using?

Again, awesome show.

Thanks.

Daniel, glad you posted. I was getting ready to ask for an address or two to do a drive by. :)

I have this big glass bulb trophy I need to hand out. ;)

From what I've seen, will be harder than the Christmas Light Fight to determine the winner.

Mike,

Where near Yukon / Piedmont are you at?

My middle son is a mile west of the 7-11 at NW Expressway. I'm not real familiar with that area, so walk me through it.

Wouldn't want to miss out on Tom's trophy chance.
