Sun Coast Gondolier (Newspaper) - March 15, 1980, Venice, FloridaOn the Light Side by . Macfarlane have you Ever done any wallpapering in be Hung my share in past years and usually with acceptable results. One conclusion i reached Long ago was that the pre pasted Type is the kind for me. Only once did i Ever fool with the a pasted variety and it turned out to be a near disaster since i ended up with wallpaper paste All Over me i and the carpet As Well As on the few Rolls i was hanging in a bathroom. Since then i have been firm in my resolve to use Only pre pasted papers but even this method almost amounted to my undoing recently. For beginners i nearly i went Gray overnight when i found out what it was costing me to buy the paper for my bedroom and i cringed a Little when i began to measure and Cut into the expensive stuff. The real problem came when i got the plastic wallpaper soaking tray from the garage filled it half full with lukewarm water in faithful following of the printed instructions and went to work on the first strip. By the time i had it mounted on the Wall and was ready to move on to strip number two i realized a steady Stream of water was pouring from the tray onto the drop cloths and carpet. Next came a frenzied race to the bathroom with the tray water sloshing from one end to the other and spewing from the crack in the Bottom that had gone unnoticed when i began filling the Container. I finally got most of the contents emptied into the tub and mopped up the rest of the water with All the towels i could quickly grab from around the room. That phase of the operation was Over but an alternate method now needed finding. With what i thought was some degree of brilliance i decided to partially fill the tub and use that As a dipping vessel for the paper. The method would work a lot better if one were not hampered with a Back problem that is immediately activated by getting into a kneeling position. This Handicap keeps me from excessive craving. Nevertheless i persevered with the Bathtub procedure one which had to be altered a Little from the Normal tray method since the paper had to be drained of excess water before carrying it to the adjoining room for hanging. Before Long i had soggy towels and drop cloths littering both Bath and bedroom floors in an attempt to get the paper from dipping to hanging without completely saturating the carpet. I imagine my actions As i scampered Back and Forth must have been reminiscent of silent movies and would have brought a chuckle to anyone watching. Luckily there was no one there to stare so i could look As ridiculous As i wanted and feel no embarrassment. Even the dog decided to stay in another room during the entire escapade. I assume the expletives i mouthed from time to time were too much for her sensitive ears. Working under such conditions i Only managed to Complete half the Wall area in the room before calling it quits for the Day so i still had another session to look Forward to. That time i was ready with a Brand new plastic dipping tray that had no leaks. I originally intended papering just about All the Walls in the new House but somehow As i get older these do it yourself jobs become More and More of a chore in addition to becoming darned expensive. Maybe ill stick to paint instead. Its cheaper and it comes in its own Lea proof containers. On the other hand when i remember some of the disasters in be had with paint in a inclined to think it Wiser to just leave the Walls the Way they Are and Tell everyone i love White. Help us strikeout birth defects March of dimes / the 1980 census asks when a person moved into his or her current residence but Why because it helps identify transitional communities and aids planning for schools and Law enforcement. An individuals answers on the 1980 census questionnaire Are so confidential by Law that even another Federal Agency cannot get the answers to enforce other Laws.
