As I age, I care less and less about my birthday. I remember way back when I used to go to the gym religiously (early 80's), a fellow work-out-er told me that to celebrate her birthday she called her Mom and thanked her for carrying her and birthing her. Isn't that a nice idea? So anyway, last night I finally had time to check the mail from Saturday and I had a birthday card from my Dad (which I plan to CASE later this week, so I'll share it with you then), and I muttered something like, "Oh, yeah ...". I also was shocked awake this morning when the news guy (on the radio) gave the date and I thought, "Holy Carp! It's my birthday!" And I get to go to work, and plan for and hold a meeting! Bah.
So to celebrate, I thought I'd share with you my new best friend. This is a non-paid commercial for this product:
If you have a shedding pet, you need one of these. I swiped the little darling across the back of my chair (the green one covered with white fur) and the chair is now green again - it was a beautiful thing. The gadget has two rollers that you rub back and forth across the fur-niture and it picks up all the fuzz and deposits it in the handle cover thingie. My handle cover thingie is full.
Wanna know what else it does? It de-furs vertical blinds! Here is the pathetic Before picture of the blinds. In my case, my blinds have been acting as pet brushes for almost 10 years, and I have never figured out how to get the darned stuff off. I also think these blinds are why Kitty has had maybe two hair-balls in the 10 years she has lived her - no fur left on her bod to ingest!
And here is the After shot. Sooooo much better. As I happily de-furred most of the vertical slats on Saturday, I realized just how old these blinds are, so I still need to replace them, but at least they are not so furry any more.
Ach, would you look at the time! I must run to the Day Job now so I can leave on time to get home for workshop/stamp camp #3 this evening. I need to be here to turn on the lights before The Ladies arrive. Later!!!
