A First For Me!

The following is a video of me cutting the grass for the first time IN MY LIFE! I had an instruction session by Bob before going out. I was told that you cut grass in rows and being careful to overlap the mower on each row. Well, I tried to follow this instruction. I sort of had my own method. He calls my method the Vacuum Method. Also, I cannot start the mower to save my life. I don't know what I do wrong. I particularly like my leg action as I attempt to start the darn thing. I ended up needing Bob to start it.

Overall, it wasn't too bad for my first time. I did end up going in rows in the back yard and some in the front too! Bob says he can see tufts of grass sticking up in rows from where I missed. I haven't a clue as to what he is talking about. LOL! Next up: the weed whacker. That could be dangerous.

BTW- Bob edited this video and had to learn how to add the "Vacuum Method" animation!

OMG, the leg action has me laughing out loud.
I do the vaccuum method too. I always wonder if the neighbors pull some chairs up to the window and get a cold drink as I provide some entertainment for them. (And I can NEVER do the whole yard in straight lines).

LOL! So funny! I'm cracking up over here. I've mowed our lawn only a few times because Dave is obsessed with how it looks and is afraid of what I'll do to it! Love the animation in the video:)

Great, I am not the only one that does the leg motion when I try to start the lousy mower. I also do the vacuum method. Hope Bob is feeling better soon and hugs and kisses to Ry and Kaylie
