Lee,

I don’t know about your evil eye. The deck is roughly 41 feet long and varies from 6 to 10 feet wide. Stairs to ground level and a bay window cause the variations. The outlets are 15 feet apart. We have several 50 and 100 foot medium use extension cords. What is the electrical load on the lights?

You don't want to be thrown in the pond. Savannah and Cindy will spend all night dragging you out and encouraging your wife to throw you back.

Sunset today is 7:28 PM, long after we usually go to dinner. The basement can be dark all day. Dolly usually does her laundry on the weekend and might need to walk by to the washer and dryer once or twice.

Probably this is as good a time as any to remind guests that the 11x13 foot darkroom is available during hours that I am awake to load film holders or for camera emergencies.
