The Season of Joy begins
In anticipation of the upcoming holidays and taking advantage of a break in the weather yesterday, I was able to get outdoors and start the preparation of decorating the Institute with outdoor Christmas lights yesterday. Not wanting to repeat the fiasco we experienced last year when I instructed Gummo the Balloon Boy to decorate, I took it upon myself to plan the layout and put everything together. And, if I do say so myself, it came out pretty well. I have to do some upper second story work next weekend as the light faded before I finished, but, that's OK. I'm not ready to turn them on this early anyway. Regardless, it is a scene reminiscent of any holiday postcard.
Now, if I can just get the Misfits to start behaving, we should be able to capture that special Kodak moment and not have something like this.
