Maybe "The Prince of Dark Mowers"?

:D

I didn't even know they used lawn mowers in England! Thought their gardens had so many plants and flowers during their short season that they used shears to cut the grass.

Dear Lawnmower Man,


My wife has decided that she would like to have a grass catcher for our old (maybe 8 years) Craftsman Eager-1 lawnmower. Seems she is tired of raking up after she mowes.

I went to Sears and bought a side discharge grass catcher the model 33076.

I took it home and tried to attached it to my lawnmower and it did not fit. I guess over the years they have changed the design of the lawnmower deck

I tried bailing wire and even kicked it a few times but I could not make it work


What should I do? This could effect my relationship with my wife.


Please help,

Sell your old lawnmower on Craigslist and buy a mulching mower...nothing to rake up!

Tell your wife you'll even buy her a self-propelled model... :lol:

Dear Desparate In Denver,

Your romantic situation with your wife is in serious jeopardy unless you can take postive action to reconcile these issues. Technology changes over time, and there is nothing you can do to keep up with it except, as the old saying goes "out with the old and in with the new"

Henceforth, I suggest you signup for Match.com and get a new wife.

Sincerely
Ann Landers

Can you believe it!

My next door neighbour has asked if he can borrow my lawn mower on Saturday.

I said "No problem Tony, as long as you don't take it out of my garden".

Bloody weird neighbours.

Wow.. you have grass to cut this early? The ground is still frozen and brown here.

You sure he doesn't want it for something else? Like spare parts for his?

Lawnmowers are great at chopping beef.

Yep - Same problem here - I hate it when the Scooters seat has a layer of ice in the morning.

I don't know what's in my dog's pee but it's ruining my lawn. I have to ride roughshod over stuff as high as corn then scuttle across scorched earth where she's splashed her boots.

But my Bosch Electric is always up to the task. :)

It isn't a German Shepherd is it? That breed is known for having a much higher concentration of Nitrates and Nitrites in their urine. It initially burns out the grass. Once it gets diluted out a bit the grass comes back with a vengence due to the higher nitrogen content in the general area. There are probably some other breeds that have a similar issue but the Shepherds are really known for it. I use to have two of them myself.

You weren't really expecting an answer to that were you! :-)

Same country. But smaller. A lot smaller.
