Everything is a shallow hole on MDI. Granite is only 3 feet down.

If all else fails - there's always hiding our $$ under the mattress - which is what my Grandmother would've done.
My dear mother-in-law was of that generation and in visiting her the pockets to her pants were always bulging with cash. Not that she had a lot of money but that's where she kept it all. She did not trust the banks or the market. It was quite amusing and we always made a joke of it but living in today's world with all the ups and downs and bubbles bursting everywhere maybe she was the smart one.

Now if she'd only thought to save it in pre-1964 dimes and quarters, she could be worth a mint today; $30 and ounce. Of course 2 weeks ago it was $40 an ounce. $480 a pound; almost $5000 for 10 lbs.
