Happy Thanksgiving to all the US members of the community and I hope those of you in the rest of the world have a quiet, easy day at work.
This is traditionally a day where the US remembers the origins of the country, often with big meals shared with family and quite a few sporting events on television. However it's not all fun and games. Typically this is the day and weekend when I've had to polish my electrical skills as I hang lights on the house and around the yard to get ready for Christmas. I don't go crazy, and there's no computer controls for my display, but I have found myself up on a ladder on quite a few Thanksgiving weekends.
I'm not sure if I'll be doing that this year. My kids are getting older, and we've spent the last 6 or 7 years skiing in the mountains. We tentatively have plans to return Thursday this year and have family over, so it's possible I'll be calculating amperage loads on circuits as we try to decorate for the holiday season.
I've included a blooper reel with my mistakes from the last month or so for you to enjoy. Hopefully I won't make any mistakes this weekend if I'm 10 feet in the air on a ladder.
Note: Most of these are the hands and face bloopers from the last couple months.
