I have always loved taking care of the yard. New flowers every season, cutting grass edging. I am in a major learning curve on this rocky ridge we have bought. But I haven't given up I planted drift roses using a pick ax and creating a rock container, they are doing well. I have weeds for grass but I am going to grow a lawn substitute. Ok ramble stopped.
I learned to hate Grass cutting at a very young age. We had a push mower and it was not powered by a motor. Then a few years later we got one with a motor on it and that was somewhat better, even if was only 14 inches wide. Then one day my Dad traded for a riding mower and I could not wait to get on it. Within 60 seconds I ran over a piece of concrete and pretty much ruined it. I had other accidents with lawn mowers and got the scar on my foot to verify one of them. I never said a bad word in my life until I was trying to fix a broke pull cord. That spring, that kept flying apart on me, just as I though I had it, ended up being bashed with both ends of an axe. My neighbors still talk about the new guy in the neighborhood attacking a lawnmower with an axe. Catching one on fire while trying to refuel it, while it was still hot, ruined two more lawnmowers. I got real brave and decided to sharpen the blade on mine one day. When the bolt that held the blade on seemed kinda hard to break loose, I got a six foot pipe and put it on the wrench, and it finally broke free, at least the head on the bolt did, I did not know is was a reverse thread. I got a nice scar on my left knuckle from my second attempt at sharpening a blade. File took a good chunk of my knuckle with it. About 10 years ago I sold a riding mower and gave a push one away. I pay a man to mow my grass.
boss you not very yard inclinded is you, lol. I've rebuilt the carb on one. I've fixed a pull cord, youtube video. I've sharpened the blade with a ele grind wheel, but I had a blower that hated me, I pull pull pull, go get hubby one pull it worked just not for me.
funny when we sold our last home, I was showing new owner how to work all the yard equipment, I got to the blower and I told her and her handy man now this thing hates me and I will have to get hubby to start it, so I pulled and pulled and pulled nothing hubby comes out one pull starts, handyman looked at me and said you got it primed for him, lol
