    I've got one account thats about 2 acres. It seems every time I'm half into things, it starts to rain. And I don't mean just a sprinkle it RAINS!!!!!!I've scheduled the account for different times of the week and different times of the day and it never fails. Of course I always try to finish and half the place end up look like dog S#$T because my 1200 pound Z rider thinks mud boggin is more fun than mowing in the rain. <p>----------<br>Jim White<br>

    Yo David I had a yard just like that last year. Everytime without fail the mower or something would break. Had to get rid of it cause it cost me to much time and money. Stunk though cause I had the neighbor yards too. It was the wierdest thing though. It must have been cursed or something. Wierd!!

    Not necessarily narrowed to 1 yard, but, every week, something seems to happen...the mower breaks down, the trailer blows a tire or whatever!

    I have some property at an auto body shop that I mow. IT seems that for no reason, things happen there. I have had more flat tires there than in all other places combined. ( No apparant reason for the flats either.) I have also had many other breakdowns at that place over the years. The T-Bar broke on my Toro, right at the T. Took it in the garage, cleaned up the joint, ran a bead of weld, and was back mowing in 15 minutes.

    Of all the places I cut, I prefer to break down there. They have manpower and tools.

    I have been lucky elsewhere.

    here that must have a curse on it.Must be something to do with the woman next door to the block.She's an American and
    VERY odd.
