Springtime: Getting Greener

IMG_4497a

Last week, while I mowed my lawn, watching the gas leak out of the gas tank faster than I could mow, I decided the ten years of reliable service I had gotten from my old gas lawn mower was enough.

So at Seven o’clock this morning, certain that Menards was open, I went and bought a new lawn mower.

I had decided to go electric before leaving the house.  When I opened the box, however, I was somewhat disappointed.

The box had clearly stated some assembly required.  Happily, I had prepared my work area on the back of my pickup, ready to dig into my collection of tools to put this thing together and discovered the only assembly required was placing the two parts of the push handle together.

It took more time to pickup all the cardboard packing material than it did to assemble!

It took about three hours to fully charge the battery and about half an hour to mow the lawn.  It runs much quieter than the gas mower, and I didn’t feel overcome by the noxious fumes from leaking gas either.

Bald Eagle: Swooping for Fish

In the photo’s center a Bald Eagle perches, watching for fish.

When he spots one, he swoops out, catches it, eats it and returns to his perch.
