Last week, we decided to have some lights put in the backyard. Gerald did a great job of interviewing and selecting contractors to get the job done. Even though he probably could have put the lights in himself, he's been traveling a lot.

In any case, the light contractor arrived and put all of the lights in the yard but needed an electrical contractor to install a switch in the backyard. The electrical guy came, but refused to do the job when he saw a wasp nest about baseball size in the electrical box. It's a mystery how the wasps got in the box, but it must have been through a VERY small hole. Determined little things . . .

Armed with some special wasp killer that wouldn't set the electrical box on fire, Gerald stood with courage and bravely sprayed the nest two or three times. Wasps dead. I guess he's going to remove the nest today because the directions said to wait 24 hours before removing the nest. In any case, the lights around the yard look great. Good job, G!!

Fires. Wasps. What's next???
