Practical Purls 1

I watched a movie a long time ago, I can’t even remember the name of it now. (Or maybe it was a book. I frequently create such vivid mental images when I reading that they seem like something I have actually seen.) I don’t remember anything except a woman who had a chair to take her up and down the stairs, and she got trapped in that chair, and it just kept taking her up and down, faster and faster. As I type this, I am almost certain it was something be Stephen King, because I just remembered the ending, and folks, “it wern’t purty” as they say. Anyway, I thought that such a chair was a made-up thing, but I was wrong. (Imagine that!)

Such contraptions are called stair lifts, and they are a real boon to disabled people who live in multi-level homes. the site I have linked to sells a variety of them, so you can see exactly what I am referring to. And if you live in the UK, and need a stair lift, be sure to check out their warranty. I don’t think you’ll find a better one.
