Though we share this humble path, alone
How fragile is the heart
Oh give these clay feet wings to fly
To touch the face of the stars

Breathe life into this feeble heart
Lift this mortal veil of fear
Take these crumbled hopes, etched with tears
We'll rise above these earthly cares

Cast your eyes on the ocean
Cast your soul to the sea
When the dark night seems endless
Please remember me

Even stop lights blink a bright red and green

Well, it's the holidays and you know what that means, blowing the budget on the electrical bill. Yes, when I turn on my outside lights, the other lights in the house dim. Good friend Sheila wanted pictures, so here they are.

We'll start with the inside.

For every holiday with lights, I have a great mailbox that just begs to be wrapped up.

And, of course, you need to make the gateway into the house welcoming.

And when lighting you should consider all angles, like your own view from the house (in the back you can see some of my neighbors inflatables).

And here are my inflatables. May I introduce the next heartwarming holiday special, Frosty and his two drunken little brothers.

And an "all together picture" to take us out. As you can see, my heard of deer has grown.

Hooray! Photos! The reindeer herd really rocks, and so what if it does force you to read by candlelight on occasion? Some things in life are worth it!

Hey Sheila, well, yeah. It's not so much candlelight as it's trudge downstairs in the dark to throw the breaker. I'm not as quick as a jackrabbit on a date, like the father in A Christmas Story, but I can get it done. We just need to get the nephew over and have him rewire the outside sockets to their own breaker.

Camille. Thanks, as a die-hard connoisseur of holiday specials, I think I'd buy that DVD.
