|Getting our harnesses on for the training|
70 ft. We had to be trained in the lift. I have been trained but I have yet to take down any lights. Brent and Bill have been working for several days in the lift taking lights out of the tops of tall trees. I, on the other hand sit day after day folding lights. Judy and I have to test them all and replace any burned out lights. If you have ever worked with Christmas lights, you know how frustrating this can be. Anyway, we visit and watch old movies to pass the time while we work. It seems like it will never end.

|This is me in the bucket. This is zoomed in, I am actually pretty high in the air|

|Sometimes they have to use a long poll to reach the lights and unwind them.|

They finished taking down the lights for Christmas 2012 on March 30. Now it is time to get them checked and put away.
|They bring the lights into the shop in these bins.|
|Judy doing lights across the table from me. There are bins and bins of lights.|
