I’m thankful for…
…my lamp re-wiring skills.
It’s surprisingly easy to rewire a lamp. I mean REALLY easy. I learned how to do this in a woodworking class when I was in college. We all got to design and make our own lamps, and then wire them. Brian didn’t believe me when I told him I could do this. So I took a lamp apart one night and rewired it. I’ll never forget the look of shock on his face when I plugged it in and it worked.
I can really only do small, simple lamps, although I tackled a 3-bulb-er once and was successful. It wasn’t easy, though. And the floor lamps are out of my league. So, whenever I see a table lamp, I begin assessing it to see if it needs to be rewired. I can’t help myself.
As we await the arrival of our Thanksgiving guests today, we have left lamp lights burning as a welcoming gesture. And we’ll be so happy to have them with us.
Yes, we have left the lights on for you, Vincent and Jon.
