Hey, sometimes you just got to check stuff... If it will start when needed, the oil level, is the beer cold enough. Sometimes, things have leaks, that need to be monitored.... Thats my story.

Garage:
MTD....2 stage(modern 8.5 HP) not my favorite
Honda HS622 TA-B - acquired at an auction- nice machine for it's size.
Toro S-140- Picked it up on trash day... it runs, sort of.
Yamaha YS 240 TB "Ricky" latest Craigslist find- on the bench now.

Well, some checking is required to make sure they work when needed. So you're in good shape there.

However, the Pack just beat the Lions for the Division championship - even with a wounded quarterback! So you might hate 'em but apparently they don't give at rat's behind what you think.

The sound of small engines idling, fresh exhaust fumes, cold beer. What could be finer.

Maybe your girlfriend prefers a shovel... So let her use one but don't give up your vigilance, beer must be drank and all engines must be started.

Mine told me to get a project, then she complained that I was always in the garage.
