Cimex and stairs

August 12 2010 at 1:47 AM

Over the years I have been asked many times................

Do you REALLY take your Cimex upstairs. ??

Sure, doesn't everyone that owns one. ??

I'm usually greeted by a stare of indifference or disbelief.

Whatever, it doesn't worry me.

Some even try to tell me that I'm to old, or to fat, or too much out of shape.

So, how old are you allowed to do what I do before I must stop. ??

How slim should I be. ??

Out of shape, ?? I don't think so.

Pear is a shape, so is round.

Anyhow, I'm rambling again.

So here's a couple of pics for the non-believers......................

I guess I should also qualify these pics seeing as they are in a residence, Big Yella makes a mighty fine scrubber prior to extraction yo'all know. wink.gif

Also what colour is the carpet.??

I believe it is an old Antron 5 nylon, that has faded somewhat. happy.gif

Coming down with Big Yella:

So, what's so flamin' hard about that. ???

Oh yeah, what color is the carpet, ????

Green. wink.gif

In true art deco style, the scuff marks had been painted over in a contrasting color.

You should've seen the gouges up 'n down the stairs. sad.gif

Those tight bends are a PITA aren't they? The really tight ones I get the offsider to steer me round, so only her hands get knocked into the wall. I just love it when the bends are tight and the stairs are bull-nosed as well.
