Out of the Blue

I am still on quite a roll of having devices die at my hands... yesterday I was giving the lawn an overdue mowing when the little handle you pull to start the mower fell beneath its blades. Not only did this replace the pull handle with a much less graspable handful of tattered string, but also managed to tangle something within, leaving the mower un-startable. The good news is that lawn mowers are one of the few devices that one repairs rather than replaces these days, but that's the bad news as well, as if it's a couple of weeks before we get it back from the shop, we may have the beginnings of a rain forest in the back yard.
