December 23, 2007

Christmas Lights.

A house on the hill in Seattle. This man put up so many lights one year that the power company had to ask him to only turn part of them on at a time. He was drawing more power than his home could handle. so the next year he borrowed his neighbors outlets and paid their bill. Soon after he bought the neighbors home...just for the power source at Christmas...okay may be some kind of tax write off in there he paid thousands to the electric company each December...but people that drove to see his place usually left a little something in his "tip" jar....I myself never went to see this home as it was always a traffic jam of a thousand cars a day and I cant not willingly put myself into that kind of a we watched on the news every year as he added more and more and more...

That is kind of tacky! I fund a manger...corner of Abbott and Lake O...where its has always been!

Looks like your site got a mind of it's own this morning! I can relate to the guy in Seattle as I to like to put up a lot of lights, however, you can go overboard and it may border on gaudiness. You do have to use some restraint in putting up lights, quality and conservative appearance is so much better than quantity - but to each his own, it is Christmas and that is what it is all about! Merry Christmas.
