Generally, I don't consider buying a new thing to be worthy of a post but this one is special.
No more hoping/coaxing our half-working mower to life in an attempt to even out the grass.
No more trips to the gas station so I can get the lawn done before the rain comes.
No more slow creeping across the lawn, staying in one spot for a bit so that the thick parts can get cut properly.
No more standing in the noxious mixed-gas exhaust that left me smelling like a refinery for hours on end.
No more worry about mowing in the evening because of the noise.
Here it is, my sharp new friend:
A reel mower that is pushed by hand
