My lawnmower gave up the ghost this weekend. I've had it for almost 20 years ans it was given to me used. It might seem odd to write about this but it has been with me for a long time. A reminder of how I mostly avoid making practical purchases like this as much as humanly possible. The mower was electric, by the way. I contemplate wanting to stay with an electric and what will cost. Thankfully it is a purchase I can make.
