Another item from my 101 in 1001 list has bitten the dust. This one checked in at number 66 on the countdown, though they are in no particular order. Patch back fence to contain Ando. It seems that after a year and a half of being perfectly content to wander around the backyard without giving any thought to what was beyond the chain-link, our pooch, Ando, now fancies himself something of an escape artist. Twice in the same week he managed to push himself under the fence and revel in his newfound freedom. The first time he was gone for almost an hour before the wife tracked him down after driving all around the neighborhood. That's how this item found itself on my list.
I'm no handyman, so I went to store called HandyMan Hardware to seek advice. The gentleman there suggested a quick fix for me without spending a lot of money on actually replacing the fence. I bought some 36" rods and drove them about 12" into the ground at regular intervals while interweaving them through the chain links on the fence. This added enough rigidity to prevent further canine prison breaks. That makes 4 items completed from my lest. 97 more to go.
