    What's worse? Up too early or down too late? I'm now up too early after many years of down too late.

    I get putting them up early, anticipating the holiday season. I just don’t get leaving them up when the season is over.

    What about Halloween? The early Halloweeners almost make me want to sneak into their yard and destroy it.

    Sideways, anyone heard about the GE resident who tackled the dink-dong ditcher this week, injuring the poor kid, and then got a visit from the po po?

    Traditionally lights are "acceptable" through the end of the Christmas season (this year it's the 13th), but most folks go until the feast of the Epiphany, which is tomorrow, the 6th.

    Holy crap, that is really... something. Tackling children will always lead to trouble, as annoying as the little ****ers can be.

    We have the ding-dong ditchters in waves. Chasing or yelling at them seems to encourage them. Talking to their parents works best.

    The young man had to have surgery. A bit over the top.
