Wheeeeeeee!

When I moved into this house, my dad gave me a Honda HR17 lawnmower -- new, and in the original box -- from the mid 1980s. My dad and I put it together, pulled the cord, and it started on the first try.

It was 70 degrees outside today, and slightly cloudy. So, perfect day to do some yardwork. Once again, and somewhat unsurprisingly, it fired up on the first pull again.

Ran down the snowblower -- don't need it anymore this season -- I'm going to "summerize" it and put it in the crawlspace so it's out of the way. Hey, if you can "winterize" a lawnmower, you can certainly "summerize" its winter counterpart.
