I live in a new house on a golf course (mistake) and a golf ball landed in
my gutter. When the wind blows, the ball rolls around and the noise is a
nuisance. The raised cage slopes down to the gutter and is attached to the
house just beneath the gutter. I don't know how to get my hands on the
ball. I don't really want to take a ladder to the roof and step on the
tiles. Is there an easy way to detach the cage in a section?
A few years ago, a golf ball "appeared" in my lawn. My son was cutting the
grass with the riding mower and hit the hidden ball. It came out the mower
at about 100 miles per hour and hit a tree about 6" in front of my face.
Scared the ...... out of me, they can be dangerous hidden weapons and can
cause much damage and problems. Who spreads these Weapons of Mass
Destruction around us innocent people.
By "cage" I assume you mean one of those gutter-guard products that
keeps leaves and such from accumulating. (If you have one, how on earth
did the *golf ball* get inside?!) If the guard is not easily removed,
you could probably just flush the ball out using a garden hose with a
spray attachment set on high (or your thumb, if it isn't too cool out).
--- Ya, when I was in high school working at a golf course, we used to
find golf balls on the course, and when we were out mowing (around
trees with regular, consumer type rotary mowers, where the big gang
mowers couldn't get) we would lift the front end, push them forward,
and drop them on the ball. The ball would bounce areound violently
inside the housing for a second or two, then go SHOOTING out the
discharge chute (which we of course wired open, see #3 below)
I share this for a number of reasons:
1) To agree, stuff can shoot our the mower with tremendous speed &
2) To reminisce about good times.
3) To remember how stupid I was when I was young
Obviously, since the mowers were not ours, we didn't care about the
abuse (see #3 above). We also would go out deep in the rough, and mow
swear words in the grass, with letters a good 20 feet tall. (see #3
Ah... good times.
