Well, I got about 1/2 the yard mowed and heavy smoke stated pouring from the mower. I yelled to Len who was still working on the stabilizers for the fiver. He ran in the house and got the extinguisher. By the time he got back out an apparent fire was out. He started the mower again. Within few seconds more smoke. He started it three more times and more smoke. So, I guess the mower goes to the shop. No way will I buy a new riding mower for only the next few months. And if this is going to cost a lot to repair, that either. I would rather the field be left to grow and pay someone to mow the rest of the yard.
Tomorrow we are leaving work an hour early and headed toward Baltimore. It's been a month since we have had Charlotte with us. We meet Amy at the Cracker Barrel at exit 80 on I95. That exit is about 3/4 of the way to their house. She's been telling Charlotte that Grandmom and PopPop will be coming to get her for the weekend. We are excited.
