Anchors Away!!!

Well crap......I really hate to admit that someone is right....especially when that means I'm wrong.

See, I've got a little issue hanging things. I'm not the handiest of folks, in case you didn't know that. And that extends to when I hang stuff up.

Usually I figure out where I want it, pound in a nail and VOILA! All done.

And that works for me. I used to have this HUGE mirror - heavy sucker. Cuz and I have hung it a dozen times. It takes two nails. Figure out where you need 'em, pound 'em in and that bad boy ain't goin' no where.

I just thought if that system worked for that mirror, it'd work for every thing.

One of the things I didn't have to do here in Paradise was put curtain rods up in the living room. Dining room and bedroom? Yep - but not the living rooms. There are "real" drapes already hung here, and I kind of like them. So I left 'em alone. Plus that picture window is sorta kinda big for me to be messin' around with.

Well, as I was sitting on the love seat the other day I notice the curtain rod is NOT straight. That is a new thing. I'm pretty sure.

So I got up and went to check it out.

Well I'll be damned. The flippin' screw is coming out of the wall. The whole rod is about ready to fall.

Son of a gun!

But the funniest (to some people) thing was that my first thought was "Now, why in the hell didn't they use an anchor for that thing?!?!"

Yeah, like *I* would have.

So, it looks like I'm going to need to redo this curtain rod. That should be real drill, just a hammer and a power screwdriver.

If you don't hear from me for a few days - send help.

And tequila......
