  • About my display
    My display started over 30 years ago. I always enjoyed looking at lights but never liked putting the up. My boys always bugged me to put some up. I like piddling in my shop, so one year I made a simple tree out of strands of lights. Small strip of wood at the top and a longer one at the bottom. It took a day or two, in the comfort of my basement, and I rigged a pulley system to the lift the tree on the house. It looked good. After the season I lowered the tree, roller it up, and stored it. The following year it took me about 30 minutes to decorate my house. What the heck, I'll make something else. So I did that every year. All of my displays are hand made, and self supporting. It is somewhat unique because I don't have a single strand of lights attached to my house of in the trees.

  1. I have worked for a couple of days and determined that I have a bad Blob. The strand is in a display that has 7 other circuits in it and they are stacked on each other. To remove it would require rewiring the whole display. Any ideas? That would take days!
