@arthurchappell I have that, and outside lights and another box for inside, and I think I may just be done with the decorating, no outside this year, just not caring if it gets done or not

Oh my, you made me laugh with your number 2. I fear that if the weather stays this way we are going to have snow in June.

I was amused by the image of Greenpeace chasing Captain Ahab as well.
