It's the most wonderful time of the year

These started going up as soon as we clinched being in the playoffs - couldn't finish until I took down the Christmas stuff because I kept blowing circuits. Some of you have seen some of the before - they only go up when the panthers make the playoffs so it makes them all the more special.

Everything is pretty old except the football and the very large thing on my front porch. The football is a couple of years old but is just now making it's debut. The large thing on the porch is new this year. And the flash washed out the blue lights in the shrubs, but they're there.

So? You a Panther fan??

Looks good. I need more outside stuff. But My flag has been flying all year and will continue into next season. But I would like to get a SB43 champion flag with the Panther logo on it!!

Forgot one of the decorations - it's an old one that was on the back porch - the helmet (/grill, it's never been used as a grill)

The year I bought the big inflatable...I remembered seeing it before football season began. I toyed and toyed with buying it and finally broke down - my reasoning - one year we're going to the Superbowl and I know I'll regret it if I didn't buy it. Notice the number on that thing 03.

Before then I just had banners and flags and lights. Oh - and I did get my beer light before then as well. I should look through old photos to see what all I had back then. I wasn't on a message board when we went to the NFC Championships against Green Bay so I doubt I took pictures.

Yeah - that's the fog - it's awful right now. I've got spotlights in the yard and you can see every droplet in the air.

Oh - and pretend like you don''t notice the banners on the garage are upside down - those are among my oldest flags - they didn't even have panthers flags that first year so I got those. They used to work the way I used to hang them - on slanted poles on the front porch, but that large banner took their spot.

And that banner on the front porch - that was also pre-flag days. I bought the printed fabric and made it - notice the alternate logo on it. Those date all the way back to the first year of existence.

Are the blue lights on the shrubs led's or regular lights?

They're regular net lights. I used to use some C-9 sized lights (that were very old), but decided to retire them this year. Bought regular blue net lights half off yesterday - my plan was to buy some half off after Christmas all along. Thing I hate about regular blue lights is that they fade so bad - won't be able to use them just a couple of times. Couldn't find any net blue lights in led's. Wish I could. If you remember correctly sunbunny, I replaced the Go Panthers lights with LED's the last time we were in the playoffs. Look how bright they still are. I've got a few more years left in these new net ones since they are new before they fade too badly - hopefully I'll find some net LED's in blue by then.
