Fishing in the HOUSE!

We thought we would go fishing in the
house since it is so cold outside.
No actually we had a major clog in our laundry
shoot! We had it clogged for about 6 feet or so and it was right in the center of the shoot(and our shoot is 3 stories long). So we couldn't reach it with a broom or anything to jam it down or pull it down anyway. So I called my good friend Larry (he's my best friends husband) he had the bright idea of using a treble hook to pull the stuff up. Well then we realized that the clog was more then just clothes. I had put something a while back down the shoot to help with weight to push stuff down and well it was too big and got jammed in there. So when we got all our clothes out either by the hook(which damaged a few things) or getting them loose and they fell, the toy I used was still jammed in there. Finally JR was able to reach it enough to get it turned and grab it with a pole and it dropped almost to the bottom. He was able to reach it with his hands and wiggle it out. So needless to say I am not putting anything accept clothes in the shoot again and only one thing at a time! Boy oh boy, was that a task? It took about 1-2 hours to do it all. Glad it is over!!!

I think the thing that was most frustrating was the fact that it took so long to do it. That and the hole in my NEW shirt!

How did they unclog their laundry shoots before fishing poles I wonder.
