an accomplishment

Today I managed to do something that I haven't done in many years (if ever). I took down the exterior Christmas lights. In the past I would keep them up all year because by the time Christmas was over it was too cold, and after delivering mail in the winter weather all day I sure wasn't going to go back outside and take down lights. So years would go by and the colored lights would fade to clear and I would buy new ones. Then I got the ingenious idea to simply buy clear ones and keep them up all year. Well, this time I put up colored lights and today, being retired, I had the time, and we're having unseasonally warm weather, so down they came. Dorothy couldn't believe it. There's no telling what I'm going to accomplish in retirement. The sky is the limit.

You'll regret it next December, when it's freezing cold and you have to hang the lights. You'll be kicking yourself with your santa boots. Pat
