    Suggest you get at least two while you are there, one to use and one for a new spare

    I hate to say it but I'm afraid it would end up in my display as well. There are never enough channels. Or hours in the day… so we just keep going & going & …

    If you have time put it in the display Vic. If not put it in the display after you start it. This is our hobby and it makes us feel good.

    If I can ever catch up with Walter, I'll have three extras (wait, two - one is already loaned out). There's no way they're going in the display this year. Though I do have all these cool "multi" lights now that I paid $.33 for each one... hmmm....

    LMAO, I'm gonna stick the thing out there even if i have to wire it to the porch lights and the headlights on my truck and sync it to an Easter song. "Here comes peter cotton tail..."

    I feel the excitment building, last Saturday all the neighbors stopped by while I was setting up the show. They were so pleased to see someone trying to build the Christmas spirit in our lonley little subdivsion.

    Vic, I am looking forward to seeing your display this year (Denny's, Jack and Charity's, and a few others too). I missed out seeing your display last year, and it was your first year of animation. But I will see it this year. I will miss not wearing shorts and being warm during Christmas this year though. If I could transport all of my display junk to a warm climate. I swear I would.

    Of course I would, Walter.

    All of the things you listed are way more important then controllers.

    Glad to hear you still have your priorities straight!

    Walter,

    I understand. I'm in no rush. I'm just adding to the display as things get ready this year. No big drop dead days for me or anything! I just super appreciate all your help!
