Sound of Silence

Although I often long for silence and serenity, there are times when silence is not the desired end state and actually signifies a problem.

Such a situation occurred last evening. The peace associated with my weekly experience aboard my lawn tractor communing with my lawn was broken as the tractor sputtered and died.

Silence.

Frustration.



An evening lost in trying to unsuccessfully troubleshoot the problem which has the tractor laying in many parts throughout my garage.

I know what is not working--but I can't get into it. Sounds like a new engine is needed. Ugh!

And the grass keeps growing.

Well is it Springtime. Maybe I'll buy a hay baler.
