Christmas fling

Janice and I are big on Christmas lights. We hang them in the front yard, the back yard, and all over the inside of the house. The front yard display shown above (click photo for larger picture) was new this year. More than 1000 C-5 LED lights--10 continuous strands more than 340 feet in total length. Hung and flung over the limbs of three different trees using a variety of techniques--e.g., standing on a ladder, throwing a tennis shoe (tied to a rope tied to the next strand) over limbs then pulling the strand up and over, and using a long aluminum extension pole with a hook on the end.
