Lawn ornament repair time..

Post  roddie on Sat Dec 05, 2015 11:31 am

I wouldn't be Roddie without having spare lamps.. organized by wattage/base-type in separate plastic bags. Still.. there's always that light set that 1/2 of it won't light.. no matter what you do. Hey.. It's all about the "joy".. (just ask Clark W. Griswald)



Had to fix this tree-top star. The mount-pin had broken off. Luckily I found a hardwood dowel that fit.. cut it to length and hot-melt glued it in.



sniff sniff...  Shocked

That little tree with the star that I fixed, won't light. I should have plugged it in beforehand.. DAMMIT! My wife just informed me that all of the outdoor light strings; either don't work.. or 1/2 the string won't light. So much for preparation... Rolling Eyes

I had started buying LED's in the after Christmas sales for a couple year. Then I stopped, the LED's don't last very long either.

I decorated outside till my ornaments and light strings mostly broke.  I haven't decorated since...  I even bought new light strings... LOL

I don't want to decorate before halloween or thanksgiving, and it is too blasted cold and windy after thanksgiving...  I need to get the roof line lights out in the summer and just leave them unlit.  Really, the only way.
