We got the outside lights and wreaths and stuff put up yesterday. It was cold, but it could have been worse. I got the big tree (8-1/2 ft) put up in the living room. It has lights but no decorations. As soon as I summon the will, I am off to put up the smaller tree in the family room this morning. I suspect we will decorating both tonight when I get off work. I hope the wife does it while I'm gone. I don't mind decorating, but I don't like to put on the ornaments.
I was putting the boxes that hold the outside decorations back in the attic when I heard a loud "crack" and my ladder collapsed, throwing me to the ground. I fell flat on my back. It knocked the wind from my sails for a moment or two. I'm a little sore today, but I think I'll live another day. Just earlier in the day the boy mentioned the old wooden step ladder was getting a bit wobbly. I think he hurt the old ladder's feelings, and she through me off and broke in a fit of suicidal desperation. I bought that ladder when we purchased our first house back in 1986. I guess I got my money's worth. Still, I would have preferred to get rid of that old ladder in a less painful fashion.
Have a great Saturday.
