When I got this the other day I was amazed by the size of the box on my porch I was like WOW. I brought the box in and all that could go through my head was the scene from A Christmas Story where the dad says F R A G I L E. Well to my delight I open the box like Ralphie at Christmas. What I found was the lamp shade first. I am impressed at how much it looks like the original one from A Christmas Story. As I kept digging I found the base of the lamp. As I unwrapped the plastic around it I was shaking about what I was about to see. It was shinning in the morning light even before I turned it on. The leg shines as well as the lamp it’s self. When I got it all together I put it in my bay window of my house. As the day grew longer all I wanted it to do was turn dark so I could turn my leg lamp on. Let me tell you it was well worth the wait. We even watched A Christmas Story earlier with only the leg lamb to lead the way. Now my only problem is to convince my wife to let me leave it out till after Christmas.
