The One-Handled Mower

Why do things break around the same time?  Within the last month we had the washing machine die, and then a week later it was the mower.

The mower didn’t actually die, it was the handle that died.  Snapped right through on one side down near the wheel. Don’t ask me how or why it happened because I have no idea.  It was looking a bit bent at that end for a while so maybe it just decided to give up and end it all.  It isn’t easy trying to push a mower around with only one side of the handle attached and the other side flapping around.  The mower wants to go one way while the handle wants to go the other way, as the attached bit starts to bend in the opposite direction.

I guess it’s time to retire that one.  The poor thing has had a good innings.
