#12 revisited - buy a new lawn mower

We finally broke down and bought a new mower this past Sunday.  The one I owned was used (bought it off a co-worker 2 years ago) and even though it was supposed to be self-propelled it really wasn't.  Goes to show you that everything runs down with old age... :-P  So lo and behold we buy a brand spanking new mower and Malek can't wait to try it out.  I have never enjoyed watching someone mow the lawn more than when Malek tested out our new purchase.  The lawn mower was practically dragging him across the yard!  I couldn't stop laughing.  It was super fast and so much more powerful and he was able to finish the lawn in 1 hour (compared to the 2 hours it took with the old mower).  Now I'm actually motivated to start mowing the lawn again, aint technology wonderful!
