RE: Help! Cell phone dropped in duct work...
Thanks pvreditor... that was a really good idea. I live in a very small town, where folks still do stuff like that for each other. Unfortunately, by the time I read it, it was already 'past the point of no return'-- I had finally let them cut into the downstairs duct work, which did resolve the issue. One of my son's friend's dad sent over a saw and some aluminum tape for the repair, and gave them instructions on how to do it, which made me much more confident in the process. (Prior to his input, no one here really had much of a clue as to how to go about it.)
I will, however, keep the fire department idea on hand for our next 'crisis'... and the way things seem to go around here, no doubt there will be one. ::g::
Thanks again for your help.
