When we had the new Pergo floor installed downstairs, we first had to take up the existing rug.
The problem becomes: what do you do with a rug? They charge to go to the dump--and we don't have a truck anyway, so for the time being, we put it on the patio and covered it with a tarp.
Time got away from us. Walt took 2 months to go to Washington, D.C. and it wasn't until this week that he finally started dealing with the rug. Unfortunately, in the meantime it has become Sheila's favorite perch, where she likes to survey the back yard. She also uses it as a trampoline, a springboard to toss her from the patio to the lawn.
