One day when I was playing lawn tennis in my back yard my tennis ball fell down a gopher hole. The hole was too deep to reach into and there was a bend in the middle so you couldn`t use a stick. How did I get the ball out without digging up my lawn?

"logically" the solution is plausible however, in reality, have you ever tried to fill a Gopher hole with water? Being from Ne. I tried many times and never filled one nor drowned one out.

I first thought about a vacuum, then I read the hint and figured to fill it up with water. It was good though. And I agree, poor gophers!

In California that would be a lot of water wasted to no probable effect. I think I would wait a day and let the gophers push the unwanted ball back out (I hope). Ever watch Meerkat Manor?

Cool question. But it the hint practically gave the answer away. I also initially thought about a vacuum hose.
