Smooth operator...

Other people's mishaps can provide far more heartening entertainment; than workaday; boring old; "Everything went according to plan".... So drear...

With the proviso that nothing other than pride was hurt; save for a few nettle stings; and superficial wire scratches..

So a glorious day for mowing... Getting into those long neglected patches of nettles... Of course one should always go diving in there bare legged first, to check if any traps lurk....

A smallish piece of fencing netting, abandoned some months earlier.
Can wrap itself most snugly; and effectively about the spindle and bearings of the flail mower...

Necesitating an hour of colourful language, and wrangling with bolt croppers on my part. Oh pish! and botheration ...!

After having first turned the whole shebang turtlewards; for access..

Fore end loader and strop (tool - not mood) come in particularly handy for this porpoise...

Now please feel free to select from the following options; of 'helpful hints' to proffer..

Always tidy up after yourself.

Don't leave things lying around in the long grass.

Look where you are going (mowing)

Or you could if you prefer; invent your own variation; on any of the above themed......

I'll put them into 'My big book of very sensible; after the event farming tips'..

Catchy title eh?
