Our old house was on a truck route and was a tiny bungalow. The lines came from across the street and went on a very obvious downward angle. I guess this and just time would stretch them and we were constantly losing cable, phone and power. Six months after we sold, they finally put the lines underground .

It was nice of him to help you with your stuff though! We had a semi take out all our lines and our front lawn and did nothing....and he lived next door!

He was making a delivery to me, that's why he helped Kind of a catch-22. I get my delivery and my lose my internet.

Usually it's the grape pickers taking them out. Since this picture was taken they have all put canopies on top of the pickers. They have to hug the side of the road to get under the lines. Sometimes they forget

So he made a couple of the posts out of cement and covered them with painted wood. After a couple of serious crashes, the city finally put a "dangerous curve" sign up. It did cause a lot of cars to slow down. Also the curve was located right across the street from an elementary school. One child was hit and seriously hurt. It is too bad that it takes something really bad to get the city or town to act.

SB, sorry the night isn't going quite like you had planned. Try not to let dh's over imbibing spoil your evening. Perhaps you can ignore him And watch a movie with the girls or play a game with them. Remember, you are the only one responsible for your happiness, and he for his. Good luck dear and happy new year!
