Black Friday 2019 Sales and Classic 4-col Comic | Posted at 11:45 AM 2019 11 29 November 2019

Happy Farm'n Friday! We've been busy installing the outdoor Christmas lights. The roof line was finished last weekend, and this week the three evergreen trees in the front yard had their light wraps attached. This weekend will be the porch and retaining wall installation, and I've a new idea for the 72 feet of front-facing wall.

Last year one of the trunk wraps lost 50 lights for reasons unknown. I assumed it was a fuse (because it was exactly half of the lights on the string), but swapping out the fuses didn't turn the darkened lights back on. Turns out THAT wasn't the problem at all...

A stupid tree rat had chewed through the wires and STOLE one of the bulbs and its lamp holder. That little thief! Mr.Fogu reconnected the wires so the remaining 49 bulbs lit up again. The missing lamp is at the top edge of the tree wrap (about 12 feet up the tree), so it is not as obvious from the street that it was ripped off by a squirrel. Grrr...
