You all are just wrong!


Recommended Posts

My first year was 2013 when I had a broken neck and a halo on my head!  The show wasn't too bad considering my limitations.  Had to take 2014 off since we were packing and moving north to get closer to Santa. Back at it again now at the new home but trying to unpack all of the supplies is a project unto itself!  :wacko:

This is my first year.   Thanks to my brother dying and leaving me nothing but plans and dreams in a note pad.  The wife is now the ex.  the living room looks like Home Depot as well as the garage.  And I am not going crazy just 64 channels and a back up controller.   It is madness in a controlled way.   But if those kids do not smile at least then next year I will be Jewish.....   :)

If you ever feel like this is no longer fun, take a step back or enjoy a year or two off. I do it for my own enjoyment. Who cares what others think?

 

(Though it is wonderful to see all the cars drive by and people enjoying your display.)

I got totally busted by my wife.  For some reason she is taking more interest in the light display this year.  She came home from running errands way sooner than I thought she would and there I was building C9 light strings.  She says "who does that, who builds Christmas light strings"?  Then she mumbled you're friggin' nuts as she went into the house.  I followed her in and told her I am trying to get ready to do the roof line this weekend.  Then I got the vote of confidence, she says why do the roof line?   You aren't going to have the show ready in time anyway.  I know that's a subliminal message, she pulls the reverse psychology crap on me all of the time.  She knows that if she doubts me I get more determined to prove her wrong.  I'm afraid she might be r,r,r,r,r, right this time. I have more to do than I have time.  The spiral trees are stalled, still can't get the wrap right. The mini trees are built but don't have lights yet.  I don't even have the materials for the arches,, or a solid plan for how to make them.  I'm still tweaking the sequences.  I think I'm screwed.

 

Insanely yours, Z

I'm addicted and I have a very serious problem. My display is growing exponentially. The lady next door likes what I do and our houses aren't very close. She has given me permission to expand on to her lot. (That's about an extra half acre). I'm in some pretty serious doo doo!
