Speaking of weedeaters
In my thread about snagging the MG vine with the mower, Nancy mentioned weedeaters and the damage they can do. It reminded me of a very funny article in our local paper one day by a woman who was fed up with weedeaters. Her main complaint was the fact that she could never find one that actually worked.
That is, the line never "automatically" advances, no matter how many times you tap the ground. Which way does the spool go on? One person tells her one way, another swears it's put on the other side up. Wish I could find a copy of the article, it was so right on.
