I have a central vacuum system in the house that I haven't used for years because the hoses kept on getting twisted around while I tried to vacuum. It did a wonderful job, but the hoses where so big and I kept on tripping over them and damn near killed myself. I got a regular one last year where you can actually see your dirt. It was made of plastic I think...it wasn't cheap either, but the plastic parts broke. It's good for nothing now.
Gord said he had a vacuum cleaner at the shop that "he had found in the back lane." He said it was the same kind that we had that broke. Stupidly I believed him. This is the guy who will pick up anything off the street that flies off the back a half ton truck. He brought it home yesterday. It weights more than an elephant. Or a ton of concrete...or ..... It's an upright...which is okay, but I have a ton of stairs and levels to clean here man....I would need a fork lift to go from one level to the next. By looking at it I would assume it is an industrial vacuum cleaner. I tried it, it works fine if you don't mind the noise. By noise I mean a high pitched noise that almost brought me and Penny to our knees.
Two down....last ditch effort was the old central vac. It worked, didn't blow your ear drums out, but it still was a very good "sucker." All I had to do was to make sure I didn't trip over the hose and the cord that plugs in a wall unit to keep the vacuum head working.... You see...you have to watch two things while using this ancient piece of crap. Imagine the hose and the cords in a small hallway. How does one NOT get tripped up eventually? I knew it was going to be sooner not later, but I keep on sucking up the dirt. Then when I was almost finished the hose got twisted and it stopped sucking....of course I took the hose and started to shake it all about to get the kink out of it....which in turn hit my glass side table and turned it over...then when that went flying it hit my plant and broke off some leaves.
Ho Ho...Merry Christmas to me.
Wanna see my Beaver coat? I wore it to Safeway today and no one tried to kill me....and yeah a picture of my new...yet slightly used teddy bear housecoat with a hoodie...
Nobody was at home to take a picture of me wearing this. So you have to imagine my head on top of it.
Spell check said I used the word Vacuum way to often.
Balonie...giving you Greetings of the Seasons...
