Hot Tip: Your Desk Chair on wheels can double as a wheel chair.
Great Idea: When someone asks you to help them carry a titanic suitcase down a narrow staircase in their ancient Victorian manse in San Francisco- pull a Nancy Reagan and “Just Say No.”
Hannah Helper – hovering at 50- thinking she was still 29- said “Heck, yeah!” when asked to assist wth the gargantuan suitcase. Little did she know, it was filled with – “seemed like bricks,” and she jerked the bag set -by -step backwards on the stairs.
And so the Tumble began…
Ring-a-round the rosie,
A pocket full of posies,
Ashes! Ashes! all fall down
Great idea #2: Live Upstairs and Pack Downstairs: pack your suitcase on the ground level and bring your clothing, shoes (and bricks) down to the suitcase.
