This was a bit of a funny situation. A neighbor had let us borrow their riding mower last fall. We used it a few times and then it stopped completely. Our grass was getting to about the length to harvest it for hay so Jeff tried jumping it with the truck. Up til this point nothing had seemed to make the slightest bit of difference and I was getting a bit embarrassed at our front field - especially since our neighbors across the street are extremely diligent about their lawn. So lo and behold, the mower chugged to a astonishing start. Jubi and Zana both got turns at the wheel. We would drive the truck around the yard jumping the mower as needed. It stalled for the fifth time as we started in on the back yard, but we were just glad that the front yard was closer to ground level.
