    Seen This Before

    This looks so familiar...like I found one before...but I just can't remember. I'm guessing a pole cap but the top is distinctive. Any ideas? Thanks!!

    but in my defense...the ones over my door are slightly different (although I think I've found one exactly like it).
    Second thought...who the heck hangs a whiffle tree over their front door?
    Third thought...did you know Whiffle Balls are made in the great state of CT?

    Lame excuse Drew. Those two lights you have hanging by the door are slightly different then most other lights you have ever seen but I bet you still recognize them as lights .

    Tony, I WANTED to Google it but I was afraid I might feel "suckered" so I didn't!
