"Do women use ladders? "

Not around my house. I know that women don't use car blinkers.

Those of us who were born height challenged find ourselves using a step ladder to reach the top shelf.

Chainsaws & ladders are a poor match. It never goes good.

It looks just like the step ladder I have at home and I'm not painting any baseboards. Guess it's a ladder of many uses ;-)

When I painted, that's what I would sit on to paint baseboard. Otherwise, I never used that size ladder. :-)

You bet we do, and that reminds me of a project I have to complete, although I think I'll rent a personnel lift instead. :)

Well, then. You should hope that one of my tools doesn't accidentally drop out of my carpenter's belt. I don't always secure the hammer properly....

That's why it's bad luck to break ladders and walk under mirrors.

D59, this is, by far, and bar none, the best topic on ladders that has ever appeared on FR. Ladders have played such an important role in the development and maintenance of civilization that I'm going to send this out to the entire GGG list. Thanks for posting it.

Have a great weekend, everyone!

To all -- please ping me to other topics which are appropriate for the GGG list. Thanks.
Please FREEPMAIL me if you want on or off the
"Gods, Graves, Glyphs" PING list or GGG weekly digest
-- Archaeology/Anthropology/Ancient Cultures/Artifacts/Antiquities, etc.

Some ladders are so darned complicated, it's hard to see how even to climb them.

Firefighters spend one whole day learning to handle and use ladders. You might say it's their "Ladder Day Saints" training segment.

This topic has climbed to new heights of silliness, but steps are being taken. I mean really, this is a clear-cut issue of right and rung.

I watched in horror as I told my wife to "do it yourself" about hanging a picture and she took a hammer and "drove" the screw into the wall.

I laughed so hard and so did she because he remodeled a powder room all by herself when I wouldn't do it. She did an awesome job, but used the screw and hammer incident to remind me that she is still a girl at heart.

The remodel she did included paint, fixtures, hanging pictures and a light fixture. Her dad (an electrical engineer) talked her through the light fixture over the phone.

Use a ladder?

You bet! I'm terrified of heights, but I don't trust my husband to do as good a paint job as I do! And I can wallpaper, too.

He still changes the lightbulbs, though. I won't get on a ladder if he can do it. haha
