may or may not have helped save a life today. i got a knock on the door about 5:30. just as the dinner bell went off :banghead3. it was a guy from the kansas city star newspaper wanting me to sign up. i told him i wasn't interested and that we had the friday thru sunday delivery for awhile but we didn't read it and i ended up using the paper to light the charcoal grill and pointed to the lil smokey in the driveway. i was half trying to be a XXXX because he interrupted my dinner but i was telling the truth. about that time i looked across the street, 2 houses down and saw the neighbor lady with her push mower propped up with a cinder block on the handle to hold it up. she had a wrench in one hand and a rag in the other. i quickly put 2 and 2 together and figured she was trying to get the blade off. i said to the paper guy "she's trying to take the blade off that mower, i wonder if she knows to pull the spark plug?" i said i was going to go over there real quick and see if she needed any help. i went in and got my shoes on and the news paper guy walked over and talked to her and showed her how to pull the spark plug out. *phew* i ended up signing back up for the news paper. what the hey. it's $2 a week for the weekend delivery and i could use some fire starter. i got my cordless impact and helped the lady get the blade off. while i was at it i got her other push mower running. the cable on the kill lever stretched and wouldn't move the kill lever far enough to let the engine fire.
