As of today two 12×18″ prints from that trip are up. One hangs in the loft. The other directly opposite me in my office.
Let me look up. Yeah, there it is.
I come from a family with little mechanical skill. Picture hanging is at the far edge of our abilities.
The picture’s final resting place is not quite on center.
My second fixit chore took me to Home Depot, about five minutes away. I like Home Depot because they’re all knowledgeable about the entire store. How is that even possible?
What is it with me and studs?
I was left with holes too large and too shallow. I’d tried everything, including Crazy Glue.
Like you haven’t!
Ribbed plastic anchors, the unfortunately named hardware item which sounds vaguely sexual, was my last attempt. It joined a long list of failures.
Today’s trip was to get something to fill the holes then solidify. The guy at Home Depot said, “No. Not with drywall”
Then he directed me to Hollow Door & Drywall Anchors. I never would have used them, because I didn’t know they existed!
Tonight a towel is hanging from its hook as are two shots of Yosemite. And I still have all ten fingers!
