Friendly Christmas Lights Competition nears its Unveiling
The annual "rigging up the lights" in my neighborhood started early this year...and it continues, a-pace!
Sunday night...tonight...is the traditional "Big Unveil."
And, so far, the schedule seems to be "on track."
But, it hasn't been easy for FedEX Pat (and Mrs. FedEX Jen).
Pat missed hours of good-weather setup time on "Black Friday"...and Jen stepped in...
If you are reading this tight schedule saga in the Great Garden State, you will recall that yesterday (Saturday) was warm...but wet.
FedEX Pat tells me that he spent five hours on the roof...in the rain...yesterday!
But...his roof is lined with multiple strings of lights...a first...along with the BIG star that has adorned the top of the house display for the past few years.
Like Big Joe...soon...FedEX Pat's roof will be view-able from OUTER SPACE!
As this afternoon winds down...
...there are just a few more candy canes to place.
...Down the street, on the corner, at "Cornershow Bob's" place, all is quiet.
"Mrs. Cornershow," Ginni, promises me that there is one last BIG ticket part of the display to come...at the last minute...that people in their cars "will be standing on their brakes" to see.
Bring on the dark...so that these festive homes can "light up the night!"
