Garden Equipment

Equipment!  the bane of a gardener's existence.  With a map of the day you strike out with monumental plans.  What's that?  the weed eater won't start?  That's okay.  You own TWO.  Ahhh, the old one starts right up....and runs for about 10 minutes then, with no warning just murmurs down to nothing.  At the exact same moment your spouse is standing behind you with the other gas tool, the one that was working perfectly fine 15 minutes ago, and it won't start.  You realize how wonderful tools are that depend on nothing more than your body movement and willingness to use them.  Shovels, rakes, hoes; they all fall into that category.  Unfortunately there isn't enough time in one summer to attend to all the maintenance if you resort to that (like your old body would hold up!).  What to do?!?  Right!  remove one glove, throw it to the ground, utter some juvenile expletive and begin the daunting task of figuring out the proper offering to the Tool God to make them work again.
