A new lawnmower

Well, I tried once again today to get the old mower to start and couldn’t. After 4 full years of service, it has finally given up on me. (Keep in mind, it was old when I bought it for $50.) So this evening, I ordered a brand new lawn mower from Sears, to be delivered in 5-7 days. It’s got a rear bag so I’ll be able to bag my grass! It’s got more horsepower than my current mower. And it’s brand spanking new!

Anyone know how to dispose of old mowers?

I’m renewing my lease on the house I’m renting and for the first time in four years, my landlord is raising the rent in order to keep up with rising property taxes. It’s not that bad, really. The rent increase is $30/month, which is well within my means to afford.
