Lawnmower and Gasoline Go Curbside

Saturday, August 23, 2008

I've been so shaken up by what happened to our friends Majo and Joel on August 15th, when they were involved in a gas explosion at their job site, that, unable to sleep for one more night with gasoline in our basement, I marched downstairs at 11PM and put our gas can and lawnmower on the curb with a "free" sign attached to the handle. Landon took a picture this morning, and shortly thereafter, they were gone. We've been wanting to trade in our gas-powered lawnmower for a more environmentally and neighbor-friendly push reel mower for awhile now anyway, and after what happened to the guys, this seemed like the right time to finally make the change. I don't think I'll ever allow gasoline near the house again. Eventually, we hope to have only a small patch of well-maintained grass in our backyard, and until then, I'm sure our neighbors will love how quietly we mow our lawn in the future!
