Taught Twinklies

About a year ago we strung up our Christmas lights above the back patio for a party.  We liked the way they looked so much, we decided to leave them up.  They moved to the front for Christmas, then back to the patio afterward.
The only problem was our hanging method was "quick and dirty" for the original party and after all this time, the lights were really starting to sag.
I decided anything worth doing is worth over-doing, so I bought stainless steel eye hooks and plastic coated stainless steel cables to help support the lights.

With the help of my dad, we pulled the new cables tight and ran the lights along them.  We actually pulled the cables so tight we were able to musically tune them.  The whole setup can be played like a giant harp.  Chrissy will be on a ladder playing the Star Wars theme at our next party.  Or not.
