Got the lawnmower running today. Sharpened the blade, got new gas, new air filter, checked the plug, oil, and all that nifty stuff.

While mowing, I hit something and bent the blade. The thing I hit was a paper bag with nothing in it, so I'm guessing there was a tree root or a rock or something underneath it. Got a new blade to replace it, but I haven't put it on yet.

Then I got some Weed-B-Gon and a sprayer to hit the lawn to kill the broadleaf stuff that's encroaching, and some ant destroyer for the little fuckers that are undermining the sidewalk. While unhooking the sprayer, I managed to soak myself with water.

I was thinking of attacking some of the tree roots with Frost's Nemesis, but I'm thinking maybe I should wait for a less clumsy day.

That thing does look damn scary. I know a guy who was just using one with a regular griding disc, it kicked back, went into the web of his hand, and took his thumb most of the way off... and he was the Shop Manager at the Guthrie. Hang around dangerous stuff long enough, and you're bound to take one for the team eventually.

You couldn't pay me to use one with a blade on it. I shiver just looking at it.

That's all you need, for that thing to hit a rock and bounce back at you.
