Found a new use for Allure - it turns sad kids into happy ones!

So we're driving around after viewing a potential property and my wife wants to see the Allure flooring installation @ place we're working on. Sure, why not. We park, kids climb out of car.....and my youngest immediately drops her Xmas money into the storm drain we parked over. $60 falls 5 feet down on to a pile of leaves. No way to reach it.

She immediately starts crying because kids. Also $60. Ok, I cried a little too.

Wife and I think for a minute. Go into rental, get a leftover piece of Allure and box cutter, cut off the long grey glue strip.

Walk back out, lay over the drain (gross) and stick my arm down into it with the glue strip, and whack the strip into the money. Pull it up oh so carefully and hand it to her......BEST. DAD. EVER.

Thanks, Allure!

Ha! That's using your noggin!

I thought you were going to say you let them slide down a snowy hill on a piece of it. LOL - I have snow on the brain. Plenty of snow here, but not sleds (or hills, really) Oh well! --68.105.xxx.xxx

I'll never forget - 4th grade, I dropped my math book down the storm drain while waiting for the bus. My teacher handed me a slip of paper to give my parents $4.32 to replace the book. I cried. That number is burned into my memory.

My amazing Mom sowed up at school with my book! No $4.32! She had hooked it with a coat hanger.

Coat hangers solve sooo many problems! I wonder what the plastic hanger generation will do?

Skunkie,I'm glad that happened in Kentucky.If your little girl dropped her money here in New Hsven she'd have to climb up two feet on top of the snow bank to retrieve it,besides that you'd be parked about four feet from the kerb, that's as close as you can get with all the snow,of course I'm only guessing,you're not getting me out in this cold........charlie ................no way.......................no how....................................... --174.199.x.xxx

Tp Brad 20,000: You of course realize that your Mom was probably lying face down in the street to hook that book with a coat hanger -- all to save $4.32!

It took me until my mid 40s before I realized how economically stretched my parents must have been. However, they never complained, we never felt "poor", and they did their best to shield us from their economic worries. They gave us a happy, carefree childhood.

Give your Mom a hug. --98.146.xxx.xx

TY for kind words. We were all glad that it wasn't 2 feet of snow, cjo'h, or rain to wash the $ away!

I like DJ's sledding suggestion - Allure is super slippery if stacked on itself! The rental has a hill....hm, lay out a Allure path, get some wax paper to sit on, start with a good push. Later, you can visit us in the hospital. --74.139.xxx.xxx

Rathdrum Gal,that $4.32 then was probably better than $100.00 today.When I came here in the 50s.went to McDonalds,first one just opened.had four milk shakes four French fries four hamburger and some change from $2.00. And gasoline (petrol) 12 cents a gallon .....and you think were better off this last eight years.......I've met some folks who say that I'm a dreamer,and I've no doubt there's truth in what they say .....................................................charlie................................................. --174.199.x.xxx
