Whew,....Wow, what news, almost as important is the time little Cindy Boohoomus of Osage Gerbil got lose and ran up the back of the dryer vent. After a call to the repairman the back of the dryer was removed and the gerbil was found safe and alive.
After investigations took place, city officials found that the lid on the aquarium that housed the gerbal had been moved, they think possibly by the gerbil itself. It had wedged chewable wood shavings under the spinning wheel and then climbed on top of the wheel and moved the lid allowing the gerbil to roam free through out the house.
Cindy's mother has told us that the cover of the gerbils home now is held down with the weight of a sturdy book.

Instead of saying a family member threw his balls in the water,why don't they just say he jumped in?

Exactly what book did Cindy's mother put on the aquarium lid, and was it hardcover or paperback?

heres a good lesson for those with boatlifts and electric winches. be careful with the power cord. a "friend" almost electrocuted a dock full of kids because he dropped the extension cord to the lift in the water.

and the article only says the dog was electrocuted but nothing about surviving.

It figures some do-gooder has to get all serious and self-righteous and show us how inappropriate we are by marking your comment as mean.

Any boat that needs a lift has a deep cycle battery to start said boat.

Use a 12 volt winch. Wire in a connection under your dash. Pull up onto the lift. Disconnect grab your connection and use the deep cycle.

No one ever died from a 12 volt charge. AND, when your done unplug and you know the kids won't knock a cord into the lake.
