Very funny!

I'm having a similar conversation with myself regarding getting the pressure washer out for my patio or just using a small bucket of cleaner, a deck brush and doing it in sections.Woman Tongue

I spread my legs out like a giraffe and bend from the waist.

It is true in my circumstance. My doctor told me not to bend over to pick anything up off the floor. The bending over allows acid to surge from my stomach into my esophagus. I found a long set of tongs at a restaurant supply that I used to retrieve items that have fallen to the floor. Those grabber things did not work for me.
