Picture Hanging Weekend

Sandy & Larry came for a weekend visit on their way to S FL. When Rosie was here last month, she suggested I hang a wall of my covers on the staircase. I had all of the AlphaLams made last week when I was in Orlando.

Larry & I did some serious trigonometry to hang 45 magazine covers on one wall ... all tennis pix. It looks pretty uniform, but it wasn't easy since the covers were actually 4 or 5 different sizes.

We hung 9 covers on the opposite wall on the staircase landing. These were football, basketball & golf. I think I need to dig up some more non-tennis covers!

It took 5 hours to hang the 54 covers on the stairs. We hung a total of 61 pictures in 2 days while Sandy supervised.

In the Florida room, we put 5 autographed pix next to the traffic light (Jensen brothers, John McEnroe, Jim Courier, Martina Navratilova & Andre Agassi) ...

... & 2 autographed pix under the glass block window next to the treadmill (Martina Navratilova & Chris Evert).
