In our town if you don't keep the grass mowed often in your front yard and along the curb they hire someone else to do it and then you get fined. My problem was my lawn mower won't start it is in need of my brothers expert touch, but he has not had time to work on it. And so I was stuck watching the grass grow higher and no way to mow it down unless I got out there on my knees with my trusty grass clippers. What a chore that would be. So a light bulb flashed in my brain, as my granny used to say, and I went to the hardware store and bought a electric weed-eater. Home I came and put it together all except for the front handle as I could not figure out how to slide something on to something much bigger then space allowed. Always a catch when I a mere woman tries to put a machine together. I did not let that stop me, out the door I went and plugged in two long extension cords and plugged it in. I had to hold on to the main bar since the front handle was not attached but it worked great. Got the grass mowed down and the weeds cut in record time. Without the front handle I did have to stop often because the vibration made my hand go numb. The backyard has to wait for the lawn mower, but I am satisfied with my bright idea and the nice look of my front lawn. Have you ever had a light bulb moment that saved you time or solved a problem that needed done as soon as possible, then share it here.
