We never had to worry about roof tops but the sewer was the biggest culprit. Many times we did the fishing with a coat hanger or a broom. Many times someone would go down into the sewer to get it. The manhole cover was quite a challenge but we did get it off. Since I was one of the smallest in height, I was nominated many times to go down there. It was a miracle that the none of us ever had our hands or fingers crushed by the manhole cover.
