My Hanging Skills Are "Adequate"
When I first hung the ruler, I carefully measured the correct height of the screw placement so that the "inch" marks would line up correctly with "feet". After I hung it, I stood back, admiring my work, and took this picture ... then I looked at it and realized how far off I was. The two-foot mark measured 31" off the floor.
I carefully measured (again) and re-hung it. It's still not quite accurate, but I'm done putting holes in the wall (that I have to patch). Superman can do this kind of thing in his sleep, so it's now on his to-do list. He can rehang the ruler when he fixes Bird Girl's crooked shelf. I should have just waited and let him do it, but I got impatient.
Lesson learned. When placement is critical, I shouldn't hang things!
