I just had to smile when I saw the picture in this idea! What a happy wave!

My husband mows the lawn and he does mow in different directions.

I agree I got a kick out of the photo, too! A good lawn mower makes for a happy grounds keeper!

That's not me! I don't know who it is.
Human beings, who are almost unique in having the ability to learn from the experience of others, are also remarkable for their apparent disinclination to do so.

I learned something from your tip Xerantheum and from the comments of @robertduval14 ... I learned that I've been mowing incorrectly for 45 years because *Blush* I've pretty much mowed the same path/direction every time I mow the lawn, but maybe it works out because when my husband mows, he does it just the opposite of my way and he does change it up from time to time. I just won't let him know that I found out that his way is the right way. Green Grin!

If you guessed a Whitinger, you'd be correct Green Grin!
I grabbed a quick pic of Katie doing her part of the mowing so I could run this cool tip! Thumbs up
