Sorry Scott, you NEED to hang lights anyway to keep up with the neighbourhood and for Mia to enjoy.Hanging lights is no more dangerous than driving to KC on icy roads in 9° temps and riding your bike in a cross race.Sorry those excuses wont fly.Good luck in court call me.
Remember the "Summer of the Shark" a couple years ago? Well get ready for more stories like this brought to us by media sensationalism. Or maybe the Christian God is pissed and is excercising a little irony.I will prolly promptly fall off something.
Go with eco-friendlier LED lights if you do. Last longer and 90% less energy.Good luck in court.
