SO, I had this lamp that I needed to rewire.
For over a year.
Yesterday I decided instead of moving it from
one side of the workbench to the other,
I would make a run to the Depot for parts.
If I had remembered their obnoxious political ad,
I would have gone to Lowes or Ace....
I bring all the parts home and for the next 90 minutes
I mess with converting this hard wire into
a swag style.
I was rerouting the original design and ran into some "issues".
That might not surprise you eh?
One of them being it is very hard to
discern neutral from positive wire when you need to
feel the coating for ribs and smooth.
I have no feeling in my fingertips due to neuropathy,
so I decided to mark one wire but every time I pulled
it through the marking had rubbed off. Damn.
....and I tried it four times! DUH!!!!
I went for broke, took a chance, wired it up, plugged it in..
and promptly blew the fuses.
What does this have to do with a Christmas Tree?
I had just bought this tree from a friend @ garage sale,
and I was debating spraying it brown,
for my brown paper ornaments.
Bought the brown paint on my trip to HD.
Before I made the decision I thought I would set it in place,
and see if the green would work just fine.
I was feeling lazy.
I thought yeah, it will work, but let's hang a few ornaments
to be sure, so I pull the brown ornament box from the
shelf in the garage.
No eye rolling you local chums,
yes I am THAT organized.
I hang a few on and then a few more and yep
before I knew it the dang thing was done.
Except for the few snowman, none of it really screams
Alright alright, I am justifying.
It was raining, I was bored, I had 3 hours sleep
I am nuts :D
SO, Too Much Information
and waaaaaay Too Soon,
but there it is.
the first signs of Christmas @ OGM
BTW, I threw all the lamp parts into a bag, and the pile
is back on the workbench. *&^%
