    Wel, I got about 60% of mine up in the last couple of days. Here is a pic of the progress so far. I hope to be visible from space.....or at least from the Stratoshphere. /forums/images/graemlins/usaflag.gif [​IMG]

    MY neighbors REALLY hate me because I leave the lights on ALL night. But my neighbor directly North of me is the photographer for the local newspaper, so I should at least get some free coverage /forums/images/graemlins/pimp1.gif.

    I expected "CK5 rules" spelled out in X-mas lights on the roof!/forums/images/graemlins/smile.gif

    Our lights are a little more subdued than that...maybe 7or 8 strands, a few net lights for the bushes and some icicle lights. Oh yeah...some garland around the front door and a wreath.

    Dude, you've got me beat !!!!! I'll post a pic of my pothedic lights as soon as I get the camera back from my friend. Atleast I did put lights on the tree infront of my 3/4 Ton axles I got sitting on the ground, so it looks like Santa brought them for me. Hehe.
