Jim’s been itching to replace the shrubbery in front of our house for a while. We’d talked about several things to replace them with, but honestly I wasn’t looking forward to the arduous task of digging everything up. These shrubs came with the house and there’s no telling how old they are. Then one day, one of our neighbors suggested a more “manly” way to rid our front of the unwanted plants … yank it up with a car.
More specifically, MY car!
Jim thought this was a great idea and brought home some heavy duty tow cables last week. While working on some paperwork yesterday, Jessie came up to my desk to give me the “damage report” (i.e. tattle on Daddy, LOL). I asked if anything was broken. We still had power, so that meant the roots weren’t deep enough to yank up the power lines, but those aren’t the only utility lines buried in front of the house. She says “Oh, everything’s fine, but the cable box moved some!”
I walked out onto the front porch to see for myself:
Notice the cable line running in and out of the roots, you can see it pretty well in the 3rd image. When I pointed that out to Jim, he says “Huh. Well, good thing that wasn’t yanked out. :)”
It’s more funny than anything, I couldn’t even get mad at him for making such a mess or almost knocking out our phone, internet, AND cable tv. And I’m glad it didn’t mess up my car, LOL!
The pictures really speak to me though. They say “Jim was here.”
