    Default Unintended Consequences

    Sometimes I think a project is successful if the time to do it is not exceeded by the time to repair the damage. [img]/forums/images/graemlins/tongue.gif[/img]
    Removing a batch of four-foot high dense bushes (carefully planted 15 years ago, of course) was pretty slow using a lift boom and cable, because only one sprig at a time came out. But, progress was much faster as the 72" rough-cut mower reduced them to four inch high stubs and mulch. And those electricians shouldn't have left that PVC junction box sticking up more than six inches, anyway. [img]/forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

    Let this be a lesson to all of us...

    No matter how trivial the project, no matter how insignificant it seems, always take pictures. Even mowing the lawn requires a before and after shot. You never know when someone might drop their cell phone in the grass, leave a tool on the mower deck, or be distracted just before mowing over, err, uh, pruning the wife's prize bogonias.

    It's like every project - each one takes 4 trips to the hardware store no matter how much preplanning I did.

    Right: I'd have had to check the blades for dings if it'd been one of those. [img]/forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]
