the horrible holes

I know, I know. Our kids keep reminding me. The holes on the wall of our stairwell are utterly ridiculous. They clearly reflect that champion procrastinators live in this house. I blame them on the builder, who neglected to build an access to the tub plumbing.

When a plumber had to cut into the wall to repair the plumbing about two years ago, trouble resulted. For about a year, I covered it with - I am not making this up - a piece of Christmas wrapping paper in a poster frame. Well, that was acceptable for December and part of January, but by July it was just stupidly pathetic.

So the houseguests/relatives who were here last September are coming again in two weeks and I absolutely must find an acceptable alternative to disguise the holes.

Look out. I have an idea and it doesn't involve wrapping paper. But I'm also taking suggestions. Please hurry!

I'm thinking either a tapestry or a American flag. Not sure which would be tackier though. I don't think a Rays pennant would cover it completely.

I would absolutely consider a Rays pennant.
