  4. I have been very frustrated that my schedule has made it impossible for me to get the last of my lights down here in the middle of February. I have never been so late. My mega tree, Bethlehem star, roof lights, mini tree's, wireframes, blowmolds are down but my lights in the trees and on shrubs are still in place. Today we had our first (and probably only) snow of the year. Since some of my lights are still in the trees and on the bushes, I lit them up tonight. They look wonderful against the snow. I'm suddenly in the Christmas spirit again in the middle of February. It feels really good Can anyone relate?
  5. Friends: I started this discussion thread mostly to air my own frustration, but it's obvious we all have our challenges. I thought I was the only guy having a bad time this year but I'm in good company, it seems. Today, Sunday, I finally got some more of my lights down. My set up is not nearly as big as most of them here but my work and church obligations have made it very hard for me to get anything done. I got my Holdman Bethlehem star, firesticks, and icicle lights down off the roof today. Taking the star apart and getting it all down off the roof is task. Just unscrewing 175 c-9;s takes time..I stepped across the street to talk to a neighbor and he said, "Why are you taking it down? In 8 months, you'll be putting it all up again!" WOW! At least the rest of the lights in the trees and bushes are not as noticable. I was late in getting set up this year and now I'm later than ever in getting things down. I'm hoping a better year for all of us!
  6. Darlene: While I'm glad to hear from you and to see your name again, I'm really sorry to hear about the awful year you had. I hope yoI ampur foot is well by now and work is calming down. I'm afraid mine is getting heavier. I am praying for all the PC folks here who have bad trying years. It is quite amazing that we all persevere in the midst of surgeries, illnesses, accidents, split responsibilitites and rising costs. God bless you each one, friends. Leroy
  7. I am Christmasjunkie. I've been on PC for about 4 years. Recently, the system has refused to recognize my login name. It tells me I haver not put in a user name when I have. I used my Facebook ID to log in today but I can't add to any of my former posts. Any suggestions? Thanks in advance.
  8. PC friends: Your troubles make my seem small by comparison/ I play we will all have a better year and happier reports next January.
  9. I just lay them on the ground and let me GFI's take care of shorts
  10. This year didn't go at all like I expected. My work obligations tied up every weekend in Oct. My new driveway arch needed repairs before I even got it set up. I ended up having to replace more strings of lights than ever before. My son had touble making arrangements to come over and help me put my Bethlehim star on the roof. When I finally started operating, we had lots of rain and my GFI's shut down my show several nights. I messed up my light count on a couple of channels and had to move components to different channels which mient I had to do some quick changes in sequences. Now because of bronchitis and work I still don't have things down yet. All in all, a disappointing year. Can anyone relate?
  11. I built my new Holdman star in July but only got it up about 2 weeks ago. I put up my new LED blue icicle lights tonight. LOVE IT! Nothing like seeing the first lights come on. I'm finally able to do stuff that I've been thinking about since last December. I want to thank those who suggested packing away extension cords neatly and tying them up. The work I did today went faster because my cords were not a mess.
  12. I'm with all of you. I had to get a few extra c-9's that I needed for a project I started in July. I was pleased in Aug when Hobby Lobby had their lights out so tha tI could get the strands that I needed. One question: Has anyone found lights at their local WalMart yet? Big Lots, Target, Lowe's, Hode Depot, lots of others....but no Wal Mart lights here. Anybody else have the same experience?

    Lots to Learn

    It is a process and I'm very much appreciate all the help I have received here. Thanks to all
  14. Thanks for all the help. I have built my Holdman star and it is nowon the roof. I have done a rough test and IT ACTUALLY WORKS! I'm so proud of myself. It was a challenge. I started the drawing and cutting and inserting lights in July. It took the help of my son (27 and big) to get it on the roof but we got it done. Thanks to all for the advice.
  15. WOW! Thanks for the suggestions. I can't afford to build a mega tree but this has real possibilities for my small front yard. Thanks guys. I'm a newbie too.
