My daughter likes to play soccer in the back yard. I ask her not to take shots against our fence as it is 14 years old and she is strong enough to break it.
WELL, DOES SHE LISTEN?
You know the answer.
One day last week the dog got out twice in the same day. Different neighbors brought her home after she visited their house.
One of the neighbors decided that since I was not home (as I am always out in the market place, offering and multiplying my capitalist talents for pecuniary gain), he decided to help me by repairing my fence.
Like most households, we have duct tape in the house. It is a very useful item, for many things!
Asking my wife for some duct tape, he took it upon himself to "FIX" my fence!
When I got home, I heard the story and the words, "He did a good job!"
I am tempted to see how long it lasts!
But there you go! As often as I make fun of duct tape repairs on other people's houses, I can add my own to that list! I am busted!
FENCE REPAIR - THE TRUTH BE TOLD...
My recommendation: I am grateful for good and helpful neighbors! And mine are great people. They must think I am because they all trust me with their house keys! But, my recommendation is: hide the duct tape.
