We're going to be away for the long weekend. Lawn needed mowed today and if it didn't get done today or tomorrow it was going to end up waiting until next week. Problem is weatherman was forecasting better than 50% chance of thunderstorms this evening and tomorrow.
This afternoon the clouds were building and I decided to play hooky from work. Raced home and mowed the lawn. Instead of putting the new Simplicity ZTR back in the shed I put it in garage because it's due for it's initial oil change. Raced back to work by which time there wasn't a cloud in the sky.
Got home to change the oil and realized I forgot to bring the filter wrench home from the shop. This was not the bonehead move because with some improvising and professional grade profanity I was able to get the filter off and the oil changed.
I drove the mower around back and put it in the shed. As I was walking to the house I noticed how uneven the grass looked - just like it looks when it needs mowing. I couldn't figure out how the lawn grew so much in just a couple hours.
As I put the wife's car in the garage (the mower had been in her spot) it occurred to me: In my rush I'd mowed the back yard with the deck in the transport position. I went back and re-did it with the deck lowered and it looks much nicer now.
