Thought some little lights around the palm trees by the
pool would look attractive on these coming summer nights, so ordered some solar-powered lights, via eBay, from Hong
Kong. Seemed to be a bargain for $25 and I am happy with them. The package took nearly a month to get here and, by the time we had installed them, the shops were advertising Christmas decorations. Guess what the local K-Mart had on sale for only $17? Yep, that’s right, the exact same lights as ours.
Still, who can complain over a few dollars when they look so good? They weren’t bought to be Christmas decorations, but I guess that they are now! The funny thing is, it will be too much bother to dismantle them once Christmas festivities are over, so our little lights will simply continue to shine and twinkle all night long (every night) as long as they last – and as long as the sun shines throughout the day.
