Reasons to pay attention while mowing the lawn . . .

Lessons learned from cutting the grass this weekend.

1. The obvious is so that you don't run over your toes (of course, if you're being safe, you have shoes on, and wouldn't catch your toes anyhow).

2. So you don't accidentally cut down your mother's flowers (this did NOT happen, by the way, but it could).

3. So you don't run over the newly-seeded areas and rip out the grass before it has time to root.

4. So you don't run over the power cord, trip the breaker in the garage, lose your power source and have to shell out big bucks for a new cord. Really, it could happen to anybody. Not necessarily me or anything. I'm just saying. Really.

FYI - safety first.

These are good tips. Vince doesn't "believe" in electric mowers.... maybe he has a story in his past that is similar to yours ;) Cus it really COULD happen to anyone.

LOL, I have had my flowers zapped off once to many times, so now I mow our lawn. It's all funny, but SO TRUE :)
