DAY 105


This was a big day. I bought an electric mower and knocked out the yard without cutting the extension cord.

Anita’s family and my God-children came for Easter dinner. It was a glorious afternoon: Mostly because my mower did such a nice job on the yard.

Let me tell you about my mower: It hums. It glides. It requires no gas, no oil, and no spark plugs. It DOES require a 100 foot cord and some dexterity to prevent a tragically shocking event. I will admit that it took me a good 1/2 hour before I finally developed the rhythm necessary to mow the yard and not the cord.

The mower has no self-propelled hardware. I push it ever square foot of the yard. Not surprisingly, my calves felt the effort by the end of the evening. Thankfully, it is a light machine and fairly easy to push along.

I’m thinking about plugging into a 220 outlet to give it that extra umph it needs to mow tall grass. I’ll let you know how that works.
