Help! I am slightly aggravated and want these lights to work, for crying out loud! Why can't they make Christmas lights like they used to??? While trying to decorate this tree, I have had several strands of lights, that work when you test hop them. And then, while wrapping them around the tree...half the strand blows!!! Lord help me not to blow...or dance a jiggety, jig, jig of frustration???
Oh, I yearn for the day that things lasted. Though the lights from my childhood could fry fingers after they were on awhile...Tomers, Mom's still worked and they were nigh on 50 years old!!!
Now, I will be making a run, to one of our overcrowded stores for another strand of lights but if I am smart (which I never claim to be)I will buy 2! That way I have a lovely back up strand. And maybe, just maybe, they will last until next year...sigh.
One day, this tree just might be finished!!! But, for now I must be merrily on my way!!!
The end of a matter is better than its beginning, and patience is better than pride.
Love to All!
