I'll probably roll something similar to last year. My LED wreath was acting up the other day, I'm hoping it has worked itself out. The LED lights and remote were a bit expensive to replace after only 3 years.
I plan on going to pick up my decorations tomorrow. I have a funeral in the morning, then have to run to see Tijuana Tom, and after will clean the bus up and get my decorations.
I'll be in position a bit earlier this year, last year I felt rushed.
If anyone else's wants to meet early to decorate and have some hot chocolate I'm all in!

I have to leave after the parade, so i'm looking for someone to pick me up at the diner and bring me to the parade. When it's over, i'll get my car at the diner and head out.

Any volunteers?

I can scoop you up if you dont mind sitting in the ' 3rd' row' in the thing..... Acapulco style. Were bringing the boys out in a driver, and them moving them into the VW. We'll park the driver near if you if that will work.


EnC - this event rain or shine? Looking at 40% showers at the moment

Should we bring some pop-ups for the festivities tomorrow ? I may have to blow off Jones beach because my wipers suck.
