Roosters: Massacred!

Are you aware that video game console manuals contain warnings that say too much game play can cause seizures? All that over stimulation that can mess with your head. I think a similar warning should have accompanied my kitchen wallpaper. Here it is in all its glory:

This questionable home decorating choice was not a border or an accent under a chair rail. Nope. Floor-to-ceiling and wall-to-wall. That's how much roosters were beloved by the previous owners. Gaze upon them for as long as you can take it; because now, they are gone! Thanks to this crew:

A few of us really took to using the paper tiger, spraying Dif and pulling down satisfyingly large pieces of paper. Then we got bored. Going up in high or cramped spots just wasn't working for us. Thank goodness one sister seemed intent on tackling the tough stuff.

We did supervise her, though. Don't you worry about that.

Oh, and please note: the walls are painted blue beneath the wallpaper. What's up with that?

Yo, Tracy! I hope you all got to eat fried chicken after all that work. :-P

I don't know who the Sister on the left end of the group shot is (light blue gloves) but I just have to say that is exactly the face and gesture that my 8 yo (V) makes when a camera comes out. She is clearly young at heart!
