    Whenever I vacuum, I think of this strip.

    Our first rental house back in the mid 70’s had this brown shag when we first moved in. We got a Rug Doctor and some shampoo and cleaned. Every pass changed the color. We had to go back twice and get more shampoo (and this was just a livingroom and hallway). When we were done, it was a blue shag carpet.

    Peter’s rug may need not a vacuum, but a backhoe.

    Shag carpet! Boy, that was miserable stuff. And yet it was actually popular for awhile - I could never figure that out.

    In the 1970’s, Orange shag carpet was “hip”, just like olive green bubble glass, wrought iron furniture and brown or “avocado” appliances. Long hair, bell-bottoms, beaded curtains, disco… ICK!!! DRY HEAVES!! I still have nightmares!! Shows just how close to hell you can come when you allow hallucinogenic drugs and sexual revolution.

    Oh, I don’t know. As an ’80s child, I kind of wish I could have seen the ’70s.

    I’ve seen the ’70s, I’ve seen the ’60s, and a good share of the ’50s, they all look pretty much the same, just new toys to play with.

    When I was a little girl, I had blue carpeting and a purple-green-white wallpapers. It had been my brother’s room back in the day, so it was he, who had chosen the colors. But in 1996, when I was almost twelve years old, we redid my room. My new wall-paper was a more girlish one, apricot with white flowers. And we replaced the carpeting with a plastic floor. I should redo my room again, but I can’t be bothered to take all my posters down from the walls and take all my stuff out of there. But I’m really glad, that we no longer have any carpeting in our house. It was really popular for a while, but it doesn’t feel very hygienic.
