It Takes Two Baby...

Who remembers that song ?
Well today it took 2 push mowers to get my hayfield/lawn/yard mowed.

I bought my red push mower in September of last year. I mowed twice. I ran it out of gas like I was told too. Put new gas in this week and oil . Pulled and pulled till my back gave out. Nada! Use ether which started it but then shut right off. 
I have no patience.
None at all not even a scrap!
I borrowed my son's mower which works.
This guilted S into having his friend come fix mine. Hey whatever works :-/ It would seem gas that stayed in the carburetor (about a tablespoon) over winter clogged the one hole it shouldn't have. 
I swear the "modern" mowers are too high tech. Give me a mower I can take apart and work on not sealed in plastic and only technician can fix. Thankfully Mr.B can fix anything. S never tried which ... better I keep my trap shut on that.
Could be why I have no patience left.
Could be...
Mowing is done.
Z and his gf's Dad are coming to tear out big bushes Saturday. My yard will be a mess but it needs done. The quince attacks everyone and the lilac is growing into the road. I've tried to pull it with the tractor but chains slip off. The excavator will dig it up. The quince is just a weed trap for ink berries. Time to clean out and up.

  1. You're so right, that is soooooo frustrating when you can't get a simple (ha!) machine to work. Seems even lawn mowers have so many bells and whistles (are they really necessary?) built into them these days that the "common (wo)man" doesn't stand a chance in trying to repair them. (Keep Mr. B's phone number.) Good luck with your landscaping project on Saturday.

  2. It seems anything built today, has more complications, and breaks down more often than the older built machines. Our mower breaks down all the time. We are still waiting for the ground to dry up. Sounds like you are well on your way to getting outdoor jobs done.
