Merry Christmas from Saint Louis Patina!

Update: The basement door was replaced and outdoor electrical plugs have been installed.

After three years of waging war on the crack dealers and other criminals on my block, for the first time I felt comfortable placing Christmas lights on the front of my house without fearing they’d be vandalized.

I particularly like how I ran an extension cord out of a broken window in my basement door, down the side of my house and then hooked up my strings of lights. Don’t judge me.

    Merry Christmas, Chris.About your wiring I have this comment: If it works, it works! I am grateful you feel comfortable in lighting up the night.~keith

  2. And a Merry Christmas to you, Chris.As to your lighting method – in the Army we called it "field expediency." Civilians would call it what Circle Blue called it.If the wires ain't hot, you're good to trot!
