That was one DUMB idea I had of putting lights along the roof line of the porch. I held the 7-foot ladder steady while my oldest child(later revealed fear of heights) hung the lights, took them down and re-hung them so that the end with the plug would reach the 20 foot extension cord. We really needed a 10 foot ladder!
My dumb idea sure looks good! We strung 600 Blinking Clear Icicle Lights. This is the first time in my whole life that I've had lights along the roof line!
