We never did a big decoration at Christmas, but I've had a 6' star on the barn roof for 20+ years. People gouge me if I don't turn it on the Friday after Thanksgiving. We're a quarter mile from the oil road, so from the road it's hard to tell that it's got a few bulbs burned out. Kinda like me. I've got a few bulbs burned out, too. Well, and there's also the string of lights tacked up under the eaves of the shop. I plugged them in too, and most of them lit up. Now the ones on the eaves of the house - we take them down every year on Jan 1. They get rolled up and stored properly, and they all lit like they were supposed to. The star and the string on the shop stay up all year round. It's part of my redneck image that I work so faithfully to maintain.

I see you have oil roads. Some areas they call them tar roads. Here in the upper midwest most people call them blacktop roads.
Where do you live with those oil roads?

I live in Southern Illinois. Actually, our main road is an oil and chip road, as apposed to what are called blacktop (hot mix) roads around here. When I was young, the neighboring county north of us used sawdust and oil on their roads. They were so slick they would shine on a hot day. When I say oil, I'm referring to road oil.
