Went down to this little thrift shop in town today that donates all their proceeds to charity after the bills are paid for the year...and where people can donate unwanted goods that are in excellent shape. Heaven knows I have donated my share.
Anyway, I went in and the manager of the shop knows that I am a fan of NASCAR and has had three strings of green Christmas lights for two years and has not been able to sell them. So she gave them to me. She also gave me three sheets of clips that attach to bookshelves.
I have a small collection of seventy two 1:24 scale NASCARs of various years...mostly the last 5 years. Well, I took those three strings of lights and clips and put them up on the bookcases. Nothing is better than green flag racing and what better way to finish the season than to decorate with a bunch of green lights is what she told me. She said she will be over to visit to see how it looks in the next couple of days.
This is one of those bookcases that I inherited from my grandparents, while they loved books and I put my own books in the cabinets underneath. I use the shelves up top as my NASCAR display case. This thing is huge. It wraps around on two different walls and is 18 feet long. My daughter will love the lights...she was hoping I would do something like I have done in the past, but this is far better.
