I also happened to buy some Christmas lights that I wanted to string up along the gutters on the roof of the house. (The lights are made with gutter clips on them.) Then I realized that the exact part of the house I want to put them on doesn't have gutters! Oh well, I thought, I'd just have to put them somewhere else.
Then I discovered that even with the new ladder, I can't quite reach the gutters on that side of the house. I can reach the edges of the roof on the part of the house that doesn't have a gutter, but the part with the gutter is just a little bit too high. So now what do I do? I don't want to go out and buy yet another ladder just for the purpose of hanging Christmas lights once a year, but I don't want to waste the money I spent on the lights, either. I can ask Monster to hang them, but knowing him, he won't get around to doing it until next Christmas.
If I could figure out some way to hang them on the side of the house where I wanted to put them in the first place, I can actually reach that part, but with no gutter, there's nothing for the clips on the lights to clip on to. So what do I do?
