My adventures with the new gas brush cutter/whipper snipper....

Well first I managed to start it....YEAH!! That in itself is an achievement, as I have a sore shoulder. So I am in my regular grass cutting clothes. By the time I have finished trying it out, I am covered from head to foot in grass.........bit puzzled by that as I figured the grass would stay on the ground?? Anyhow, ended up stripping off at the mud room door, as there was no way I was heading in the house with grass all over my clothes. Now at this moment if you heard a thump, it's my dad who has just keeled over, on the way down saying," She did what, folk could see her from the road!!" And the problem with that would be?

So I need to find a hockey player, who plays the goalie, as I need all his protective gear to wear when using this machine as its dangerous. Now if I can't find a hockey player, my flowery wellies, safety glasses and gloves will have to do.

Dh mentioned it would be helpful if I read the instruction manual to see what I should or shouldn't be doing. My comment back to him was, why change a habit of a lifetime, I never read instruction manuals, that's his job and a fine job he does of that!!
