Lawnmower Parts!

Not much here, but I did get an e mail from the Wolfgang Puck Appliance folks that they had shipped the correct sides to the new grill.  Perhaps they did put a rush on my order, and they will be here soon.

We did some really thin steaks on the grill tonight, and it was really fast.  I think I will like this product!  That is once I can get back to eating normally after this surgery.   That might take a long while!

Today I drove about 12 miles North thru the city streets to reach a hardware store that I have used to repair my old Lawnboy mower.  They had the parts that I needed and more importantly, the guy just walked over to the shelf and handed them to me without spending hours looking in books.

It was only a small rubber primer bulb, that evidentially wears out on a routine basis.  But it really makes the lawn mower hard to start when the primer can't be used to give it an extra shot of gas.

By the time I was back home, I was ready to be done with riding in the car.  But that is the farthest I have gone since surgery which was two weeks ago today!  While I would like to be out riding the motorscooter and mowing the yard, that is just not in the cards yet!

I did install the little primer after supper tonight, as it wasn't too much of a task.  And the hardware guy even explained how to do it.  His bill was $3.26 for the part and tax.  I felt guilty, but then that was all he asked for.  He will get more of my business even though he is too far away to run for a bolt or two.

So just the same old sitting around, until my bum is numb!

  1. Good deal on the primer bulb! At least you've got a full weekend of football and baseball playoffs coming up this weekend so it's a good time for taking it easy. Can't believe it's only 2 weeks since your surgery as you are getting around so well!
