Rhett, the title was supposed to be Mr. Toads wild ride because he got sucked up by the shop vac, not shoveled in. Silly.

Then, wild ride indeed!

I was also thinking about the ride at disney.

The frequency and volume of coincidences lately is astounding. Must be some kind of omen.

MTWR was definitely not an E-ticket ride at Disneyland, but I think the Shop-Vac journey would qualify as such for out little amphibian pal.

I could be fixing a leak in the center of a fairway with nothing but bermuda grass in every direction for 300-400 yard's. And if i had to leave that hole open overnight, even if there was only a inch of water at the bottom of the hole, guaranteed, the next day, there would be a frog in that water. It got to the point that the first thing i would do is look for a frog, and i would almost always find one.

Kind of like when repairs come in threes, three bad splices, three cracked meters. . .

Then sometimes things go too smoothly. . .

We had a deep hole open over a weekend near a pond and came back to find a muskrat stuck in the hole
