I just read your article. I am glad that it worked out the way it did. The thought of something like this happening is always in the back of my mind. I think that it is great that you are willing to share the story with others, and quite possibly prevent this from happening to someone else.
Three-fourths of the Earth's surface is water, and one-fourth is land. It is quite clear that the good Lord intended us to spend triple the amount of time fishing as taking care of the lawn. ~ Chuck Clark
