Fu#&ing Stupid Leaves
Once I get the leaves down on the ground I really get to work. I like to use my mulching lawn mower to grind the leaves up so that they can fertilize the yard. My lawnmower is a fairly reliable machine, once I manage to get it started. Getting it started is the problem. I used to be able to fire it up in 2 or 3 pulls of the cord but now...it might take 100 cranks. I spent 45 minutes cranking on the sucker the last time I started it. I had Mr. Wonderful come out and try to crank it but he gave up after about 30 cranks. I then worked on it until it finally started. The yard looked nice once I mowed over it about 3 times. I didn't do a super good job because my trees had quite a few leaves left.
