When working on a mower in the blade area, first remove the spark plug wire so the thing won't start and if turning the mower up to look or replace the blade, turn it with the carbuerator side up. If that side is down, oil will run into the carbuerator and create a smoke screen when and if you restart it.
thank you for this good advice. I was just looking at the decency of the people on this thread and saw your tidbit of advice just when i was about to do this for the first time - and quite a bit ignorant of mechanics,so thanks!

I'm a Hoosier!! So hogweed grows in Indiana? Surely then I've seen it. I remember horse weeds, but not hogweed. I looked at hogweed images o line and it seems to be a little familiar. Too long ago

Welllllll, other than the rain watering my newly planted things, it pushed the fencing job back and totally postponed putting in the concrete culvert that was delivered today. so I understand what your saying. Last year the Amish guy that was working for me had a chisel slip out of his tool belt. Went straight down and sliced the extension cord in half!!! Talk about sparks flying!!! Regular 4th of July !!! Lol
I did that when I cut the cord to our electric hedge trimmer. Good thing it happened so fast or I might have been fried. Yikes. I've always been a bit of a klutz.

Good morning my fine feathered friends. My birds are multiplying. Looks like an Alfred Hitchcock movie around here. I have to feed my outside dogs at night, or the birds eat the kibble faster than they do. I was thinking of AW yesterday, when I saw two young does grazing in the side yard. Beautiful. I also saw a different sight as hubby and I drove home on our little country road. It is not unusual to see vultures and turkey buzzards around here, and you have to be careful so slow down if they are in the road. They don't move quickly and risk becoming road kill along with the lunch they are eating. One BIG bird took a slow lift off and fired away, literally, as he took offense at our disturbing his meal, just missing the windshield.(What goes in the body, ultimately comes out the other end). Bombs Away!!!

On my way home with a quarter of a mile to go, a large wild turkey flew up out of the side ditch and committed suicide on the grill of the rental van.$1800.00 damage. Lol.( it WAS rather crazy )

@ Roaming, sure glad to hear that you're relaxing. All those long hours, shopping for the birds and taking care of your family keeps you hectic it seems. It's nice to hear your parents have been well. Pneumonia is terrible if not caught early. A little chilly out here.Yet, the birds and I are enjoying the sunlight. Lovely. Partner will be home next week after being gone for nine weeks. Feeling kinda squirrelly. Hehehe. You have a nice evening Gal;)

Way to go. What I don't understand, is if someone doesn't care to discuss the topic of the day, why don't they just tune out? Can't account for some people. Glad you finally got some rest.

Well, you will not know what to do with yourself when your partner gets back.((Wink wink)) lol Here, it's sunny and nice. I am feeling bad for those that are going to the local Jacksonian celebration this Saturday, because it's looking more and more like rain. I love that celebration, but alas, I have to work. Hope you have a good rest of your day.

Because some people just want to try and bother other people. It's too bad they can't just relax and enjoy the birds.
