is the motto that should resound for us all.

I started digging in the backyard to put a fence in. Didn’t plan on going any deeper than about 20 inches. Apparently, there are CRAZY WIRES about 10 inches under the ground in my backyard. Yeah, I found out the hard way. AGAIN! The first time I hit something was when Ferdi and I were digging in the front yard and I hit a water line. That sucked. Huge mess. Very embarrassing. This time, I got one 5 inch wide hole dug and yup, shiny copper sticking out. www.callsunshine.com is who you call to get the utilities to mark their spots.

    Yeah, I cut my cable with a sod cutter once…it was like 2 inches deep. It was supposed to be 2 feet. Good times…
