After much deliberation, and a bit of convincing, we bought a new lawn mower.
If you're wondering why we had to buy a new lawn mower just ask Jed about the importance of putting oil in the lawn mower. He discovered that if you go without putting oil in a lawn mower for over three years it won't run that well.
He tried to redeem himself by changing the air filter, cleaning the carborator, and putting on a new spark plug, but the thing still sounded like a sick cow. After about a month of nursing the mower along, it died. So we begun to look for a new one.
