I just finished putting up the plastic on my side porch for the season. A sure sign of Winter. I hate losing my view, but I hate shoveling snow off the porch more.

Did the light work?

It did! Thanks for asking.
I kept glancing at it last night as it got dark and next thing you know it was on. It looked like I had cross-threaded it, you really have no feel for screwing it in on that wobbly contraption I was using, but I guess I got it in OK. I'm good for a few more years. And I only lost one screwdriver in the process

Blimey Pac! Changing that bulb sounds like it was a tad dangerous! Glad to see you are in one piece!

lol, not dangerous, but not fun either. It was an exercise in patience, something I am not known for.
