Adventures With Lasers

OK, so I bought a laser level, and have been loving it. You might notice several previous posts showing the red line on the wall, helping to keep the wallpaper plumb.

Well, this past Tuesday, I dropped it into a bucket of water. I was able to take it apart and dry it out, and it worked fine.

Two days later, on Thursday, it fell from my ladder. The self-leveling mechanism got jammed, and it would not work. I took it apart, but this time there was no saving it. So I went back to Lowe’s and bought another one.

Today, Saturday, I went to use it and – the self-leveling mechanism is jammed, and the laser line is no where near plumb nor level.

So, back to Lowe’s tomorrow. Sigh.

Cell Phones, Cameras, and Wallpaper

June 7, 2011

Here was a new one on me…

Yesterday I was coming out of Home Depot and saw a guy looking at the “Wallpaper Lady” sign on the side of my van. Occasionally I see people doing this, and usually they are scribbling down the phone number.

But this guy had out his cell phone, and was aiming it at the sign.

How handy – he was not taking time to scramble around and dig out a pen and then find a scrap of paper and jot down the number.

He was photographing the entire sign, quick and easy, and easy to find when he’s ready to contact me.
