I purchased a few other items and have improved my Christmas lights display. The following pictures are my show and tell.
|I purchased to packs (6) cup hooks from the Tire and that let me hang|
the lights. These are the lights I thought I had lost in the move.
|The dollar store had cheaper extension cords but travelling there|
would have used more money in gas than what this one cost. I will
probably add a timer to this, but that can wait.
|It took about five minutes to install the|
cup hooks. Six cup hooks cost $2, cheap.
|Last year I had one string of these lights wrapped on the railing.|
This year both strings are on there. So more joy this year.
|Another view of the front lights with timer.|
|The lights at the back from inside.|
|The lights at the back from outside. The camera has compensated. To|
the eye, none of the porch or railing detail can be seen and the
contrast between the dark and the lights is greater.
|Lights at the front.|

|Night time photography like this requires standing still and holding|
the camera very steady. The shutter takes much longer to expose the
picture than it does in bright daylight.
