JoB, I too live near the house on Thistle that is a magnet to my car every time I am driving home. It never fails that I want to see what they have up next. It's wonderful!
I took down my Halloween decorations yesterday and then it started raining. But this weekend, even though I have plans, I truly think I could get started on at least the "on the roof" decorations so I don't have to worry about it when the weather gets cold and rainy again.
Last year I made the switch over to LED lights. Although the surrounding neighborhoods don't have the best reputation crime wise, I consider my neighborhood on SW Cloverdale to be pretty charming. But because of the high cost of my new lights and not wanting to take the risk of making it too easy for them to be stolen, I decided to zip tie them down to the reachable and exposed areas. it worked well. I only mention this because I want people to switch over to LED lights and know that there is a way to detour people from stealing them.
Although it's not 100% guaranteed that they won't be stolen, at least someone will really have to work at it to do so.
My biggest question to you all is, if I were to add figures in the lawn, how can I secure them fairly well?
