My front door has porch lights on either side of it. It makes for a bright entryway. I like it. Sometime over the summer, one of the light fixtures broke. At first I thought I could glue it back together, but on closer inspection, I saw that a bolt had broken. Not only was the housing of the light dangling – the insides of the light were loose. The socket was spinning freely. Dang.
Yesterday was pay day. I decided to celebrate by getting a new pair of light fixtures. I would stop at Home Depot and Lowes, and whichever style of fixture I liked best, I would get two of them. Home Depot was my first stop, and after looking there, I decided not to go any farther. I made my decision. I replaced my old, broken fixture…
…with one exactly like it.
I couldn’t believe they still had the same style available. I bought the original lights probably ten years ago. And the style is still being made? Awesome. I only had to buy one light instead of two. I only had to install one light instead of two. But now one of my lights is really dusty, and one is sparkling clean. I can’t decide if I should clean the old one, or just rub dust all over the new one.
