Gigi, every time a bulb goes out, the whole lot goes out and Karen has to test the whole lot...Love it!

She bought more lights? HAHAHAHA oops, I mean you poor soul, you have more work.

She has to test the whole lot when one goes out? Is that what you call poetic justice?

I am glad you are likening me to your bros, Gigi! Absolutely delighted!
I call you Gigi cos of your fantastic French accent!)

Saturday and Sunday it was Christmas decorations and lights..
Today, Card writing...
Very tiring! Karen went to bed at 9pm! She just loves to see the family's faces on Christmas Day!
Hard work for just one day?

Whatever keeps her happy makes me happy!

Dear Cream

Thx
Hobbes

Val, I've just wisened up with time!
One can get such a lot out of people if one just stops and listens instead of thinking of an answer.
As for understanding women, are you joking? It would take centuries!

Hobbes, you are welcome to send Hubby over! Karen plans the lighting! I just freeze my fingers putting them up.
I'll teach him how to make the tagine so he can make when he gets back to the island!

I don't think you've suffered enough yet! Those dark spaces under the windows could use a little illumination!

What an amazing glow! I can only imagine the electric bill! BTW I like your new avatar...you make a very good Santa

Janet, Karen noticed those dark spaces on Sunday night and, as mentioned to Gigi, she's bought more lights! When I whimpered a moan, she said something about something about "where the sun don't shine..."

Carla, I appreciate your concern about the electricty bill! I can feel a post coming up about that!
I'd love to get dressed as Santa but I'd hate to make young kids cry. Because many are really frightened when they get too close!

The house looks beautiful. I doubt Santa will miss it! :)

Penny, I doubt whether a UFO will miss it! I am sure it's visible from Venus!

What a great idea, Gigi!
I'll be helping him with a lot of moral support while he freezes his...fingers up on the roof!
