After setting it all up Saturday and then finding it in the floor this
morning, ( don't know what happened) I think we're going to decorate an
empty bedroom as the Christmas Room. I'll set it up once, do all the
traditional stuff there and when all is said and done, close the door and
leave it all up until next year.
That reminds me of my favorite Elmer Fudd cartoon. When the cartoon starts,
for about the first 30 seconds he's busily running all over his house
hanging up lots of Easter decorations. He suddenly stops and looks at what
would be the camera position and says, "I'm waitin' on the Easter Bunny and
when he gets here BWAM!
What can I say, I'm cheap...
I fixed two more strings, and the Christmas tree's up, and
operational. Everything looks pretty decent at this point. I'm just
hoping that we have a good January thaw so I can get all this crap
back down in reasonable time...
Anybody know how to tone down the sensitivity on Douglas Fir? He
keeps shooting his mouth off every couple of minutes or so, and I
think I've already figured out how to get him to fly straight with an
H for power...
"Hi! I'm Douglas [ignition] Fiiiiiirrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr!"
I still say a big ol' Tesla Coil would be cooler...
But, of course, I thought the Pentagram with Santa in the middle that
I did last year would be a hit too. The neighbors kept trying to set
fire to my house...

Naw... just standard supply and demand...
You got tons of money, and no time because you work 70 hours a week to
get the money, and you want to keep up with the Joneses, in order for
you to look like a normally adjusted social creature, and not a
borderline psychotic mess...
I still say Tesla Coil. Nothing says "Christmas" more than a big
