My old mower has been a little disobedient recently. So, after a futile attempt by myself to repair it (for the 100th time) I finally gave-in, and took it to a pro'.
I have to admit to being a little embarrassed about my home-made cornflake packet gasket (ahem), so I lied to him and told him that a 'friend' had repaired it some time ago, and that the same 'friend' had tried again quite recently. I wasn't going to admit to being that 'friend'....no siree!
Last Friday when I went to collect it, the mechanic said that 'MY 'FRIEND' WAS A TOTAL IDIOT, AND I WAS NEVER, NEVER, TO LET HIM FIDDLE WITH IT AGAIN'.
I assured him that I would pass on the message (ahem). Lady Magnon nearly wet herself sniggering.
Anyway, in between time I have purchased this new Formula 1, team McCullock, babe magnet, land cruiser mowing hunk.
Low profile tyres, sleek elegant design, furry dice (hidden from view), and a deep throaty growl from its 140 cc engine..... a beast of the mower world (and a beast of the design world).
I believe that McCullock is now owned 100% by Husqvarna, which gives confidence. This was its first sortie, and it seemed to work OK.
Right; let's burn rubber!
