The stripper incident

On a recommendation from a friend, I hired a stripper.  A cheap stripper.

Now, you would think that a cheap stripper would do a nasty job, but this one had no problem steaming up the windows.  Even the wife was impressed.  She had a go herself.

I am, of course, talking about a wallpaper steamer/stripper.  At first we spent way too much time fruitlessly scratching at the wallpaper removing tiny scrap by tiny scrap.  The steamer, on the other hand, made amazingly quick work of the job.  Next time there will be no hesitation – $28 well spent.

I often wonder about fashion.  What is fashionable now will look dated in a few years, appalling in 10, hilarious in 20, and be right back in fashion again in 30.  At least for those of us that don’t have vivid memories of it – Remember the 80’s anyone?

Paying homage to fashion over the ages are the various layers of wallpaper lovingly applied over the decades, and brutally removed by me:

Ok, paint, not really wallpaper. Dated

Decades old, hilarious!

The original. Actually, not bad!
