Sounds like a nice machine and best of all a new gas line.

Glad to hear you are OK, homeowners insurance will pay for that.

Probably won’t cover your undies!

Well my bifocals got melted too... I'll fire a claim but doubt I'll get anything.   My e-marketing was 20... I've a $1k deductible so at most I'll get less than 1500...

Close call Bud. So glad you’re not worm food.

My homeowners covered mine completely but mine wasn’t a total.

Very lucky, bud....  A long time ago I had an old landlady whose grandson was burned to death in a lawn mower explosion in his garage in Houston. I did not know the fella, it happened before I met the little old lady. 

Several years ago when I was working as a grounds man at that cemetery there was an idiot who used to fill up his weed eater with gas with a cigarette in his mouth....

yes I got lucky escaping with only minor burns.  This happened yesterday about 4pm EST.  I went to sleep with only red marks to wake up with some blisters.  The only ones that are bugging me are the blisters on the tip if my nose.  Those kept growing and by this evening the the emtire end of my nose is involved...  stoll consider myself lucky...

Mornin gents

So Bud almost turned into a crispy critter. 

Bud, I have to ask. Have you seen a Doctor about your burns? If you're getting blisters, you need to be careful of infection.

A few years ago, I was having an issue with the gas line on my Scag. Went to the dealer with the offending coupling, and they gave me a whole new line, including the valve assembly. At least I didn't feel like Redneck Repair Services when I was finished.

Terrible day to mow grass here. It's in the 60's now, no wind, and not a cloud in the sky. We're just cursed with all this bad weather.

I'm fine thanks, really!  The next door neighbor is an EMT and he popped over today and checked it.  My nose is the only area of concern and I'm keeping Neosporin on it.

Filed an insurance claim today and on my neighbor's advice I also filed for the 12" dia. Sugar Maple that endured the extreme heat.

My very first claim ever...

Sits too high for me. I need a low center of gravity.
