I started my day all ready to go at 5am!! Coffee in hand made my mental notes as what I wanted to get done!

1.Cut the front grass check the gas etc. can't pull the cord??? Take it apart,change clothes, go get parts, change clothes ,fix it,not working take it apart, fix it again starter spring in backwards?? Only took 3 hours? Ughhhhh come inside have a nice cold glass of water & a yummy tomato sandwich!

2. Lay on couch & watch something thur my eyelids for 20 minutes

3. Go cut the grass!!! Finally done, I did the whole thing I was afraid to shut it off & it not start back up!

Thanks for this recipe, Tango. I'll be on the lookout for my bag from your giveaway! Tiring day.....worked at the church's art show and was there AT 5:30 and on my feet until lunchtime. Whew......tiring but fun....tonight sitting in our friend's boat (at the dock) to watch fireworks....safer to stay tied to the dock than to go out on the water with the nutty folks out there on the holiday! Sorry you had such lawnmower trouble.
