Yeah, we have an old pre-lit. Setup is a mess too. The lights look like regular light strings, just very tightly wound around the branches, but it still has individual plugs that have to be connected. But it's pretty after several hours of labor. Unfortunately half the strings didn't work last year. Due to all of the renovations going on here, we never got around to finding a replacement. And with a 2 year old grandson this year, we gotta have a good tree. Yes, I know he'll never remember it, but the pictures will ... Hopefully there'll be a good Cyber Monday sale

Nice find, Pete. Thanks for sharing that, and congratulations.

As for the tree, my wife bought one of those fancy life-like plastic trees before we were married, and it looks nice after it's set up. However... setup is a real pain after it's been in storage in the box for a year. All the branches are condensed, and we spend a lot of time "fluffing" the tree to appear lifelike again. Given the built-in propensity for failure, I'm glad it's not pre-strung with lights. It would be tougher to test/maintain, and you are stuck with that style of light for as long as you own the tree. Maybe one wants to change to bubblers, icicles, or something not yet invented.

If one wants to light up the house for the holidays without the hassle of climbing a ladder or webbing the yard with extension cords, you can consider a holiday projector - but be prepared to be disappointed.

Thanksgiving - loose britches day.

I normally travel to Reno for the week of Thanksgiving, but our travel date and destination has shifted this year. While bloat day is supposed to be with family, I am fully expecting a disaster. Ever watch National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation? Think Tugly's Tumultuous Turkey Time. If this were to occur on Halloween, I wouldn't need a mask... for the deer in the headlights look on my face.

My wife is laughing her *** off as I write this, because I'm not making this stuff up.

So Rich, you're expecting cousin Eddie to come over and then the show begins?

Mornin y'all! Hump day. One of my daughters turns 12 today, although she's been acting like a teenager for years... Thankfully she was not born on 10-31...

This is awesome Rich. It seems to be more the norm these days than an anomaly...myself included. Someone always has a little too much and gets real "honest". It happens every year. My wife and I just stand back and watch. It gives a lot to talk about on the way home.

What? Eat twice in one day? I'd never fit in another suit again. What an awesome idea!

I think that I have a suit somewhere, but I would have to search hard to find it. Besides, I seriously doubt that it fit anyway.

Once upon a time I had a Polish girlfriend (true story). Her parents were from Shamokin, PA, a coal town. We used to go to her maternal grandmother's for Thanksgiving (great eating). The women actually cooked and waited on the men while they (we) ate then cleaned up and ate while we crashed on the couch. I found the whole process interesting and sort of entertaining but who was I (the outsider) to complain about it?
