50 footer is up.  It also snapped a pipe, but it was down low, so I slipped a smaller diameter pipe inside to reduce flex & cable tied the area tighter.  Only needs to hold up about 5 weeks. Wink  Probably the last year I'll do the big arches, so starting to look for cheap white lights for the next project (it's going to be a half dome, not sure how big yet...)

I stumbled on to an interesting tidbit of information today.  Mariska Hagatay, who plays Olivia Benson on the show 'Law And Order SVU', was in the car when her mother (Jayne Mansfield) was killed when she rear ended a semi truck.  This triggered action by the NTSB.  Since then, 1967, semi trailers were required to put re-enforced steel bumpers on the back of the trailers to help prevent cars from going under the trailer. Thus, preventing serious injury or death from decapitation.  It is now called the 'Mansfield Bar'.

I can't complain but sometimes I still do.

Mama, has her Christmas spirit going!  Still pretty mild outside, that's why the windows are open.

I had a little practice in the art of persuasion just now.  I asked Mama, how about something different?

There was one catch, she had to go get it.

Tanner's Tap & Grill


She wasn't too keen on the idea...You're not very nice!  I said.  I can't do much of anything without my crutches today.  I started reading (out loud) some of the items on the menu.

Mozz Stix

$5.50
with marinara

Onion Rings

$4.50

Jalapeño Popper

$4.95

I'm starting to get a positive reaction...Tongue


Combo Platter

$8.50
Includes mozz stix, onion rings, jalapeño poppers, cheese nuggets, deep fried pickles, spicy green beans, broccoli bites, breaded mushrooms & marinara sauce

It's a WIN WIN!!

She's in there making mouthgasms now.
