Sometimes...

...wishful thinking works. A few days ago, I mowed about half the yard then the mower wouldn't restart shortly after I took a break. I just recently had it serviced* and even used the recommended fuel stabilizer, so my usual habit of small engine abuse shouldn't have been to blame.

It was late, hot, and buggy. I rolled the mower into the garage, hoping and wishing that it would start the next time I tried with nothing more than a few days of rest to make a difference.

Today was that day. The mower started right up, first pull, just like it did fresh from One Pull Lawnmower Shop. If you'd seen what I'd put it through since picking it up a few weeks ago, you'd be as impressed as I am. As shopowner & repair guy James Kennedy's website says, "We have the mad skills to fix whatever is wrong with your mower." And to keep it running, too. Win.

* This marked the first time in my entire life I've had a lawn mower serviced. I'm turning 60 next month. It's either a matter that I'm still demonstrating learning behavior, of which I am proud, or a further example that my habit of small engine abuse really is lifelong, which is the opposite of a reason for pride. When I bought it new...last year, I think...maybe 2 years ago, I foolishly chose a mower without a primer button. It totally refused to start this year, hence the service visit. It was too new to just replace.

The name of the lawnmower repair place makes me happy. *g*
