    Good news, bad news, redux!

    Good News: I decided to put up some Christmas lights, for the first time since 2012! When, um, something happened.
    More Good News: We have a new house, so I just walked up the steps to the upper deck and attached them to the rail. No ladders, no roof, no falls.
    Still More Good News: They work! That's not always a given.
    Bad News: Um, there isn't any, except I can't find my original thread from 2012. Which might have been interesting to read, considering the level of painkillers I was on for some of it.

    Yes, that's it, thanks. I searched for threads started by me and didn't find it.

    I did know if I found it I'd be saddened by responses from LookingSkyward. We miss you, Dave.

    Uh, the world ended, or did you not see the movie?

    Glad you had a better experience this time.
    Never attribute to malice that which can be adequately explained by ignorance or stupidity.

    The good: we've put up the Christmas decorations as well.
    The bad: we're missing a box of decorations. I've checked the attic 3 times, all the Christmas stuff stood together, but no trace of the missing box.
    The silver lining: I did not fall off the chair and the tree did not catch fire. It does look a bit empty though and the missus is in a bad mood because there are no gingerbread men in the tree.

    We have sent the infrared helicopter home and gave the search dogs some rest: the missing decoration has been found. It was sitting inside the oversized Santa socks.
