Do what my neighbor did.
When i was about 7 or 8 I was next door at the neighbors house outside
watching the guy try to get his lawnmower running. At one point he hollers
to his wife "Hey honey! come here a minute will ya?"
She comes over and he says "Here, hold this for a second" and he hands her
the bare end of the spark plug wire. Then he grabs the handle and pulls the
engine over once real hard. She jumps and screams and he never even looked
up and says in a low even voice "Yup, its got a spark"
I never forgot that, and I'm 50 now.
Mike and Lulu Hatten (the kids of the couple in this story) were my age and
lived in Hampden Maine back around 61 or 62 and I havnt seen them since -
it was their dad and mom in this true story.
Mike or Lulu if you're around and by some odd chance happen to
see this- say hi.
I can relate to that, Eric. My dad got me that way more than once
back in the 60's. -hehe- and I've gotten people that way since.
Heck, I still do it to myself now and again when I mess around with
ignition spark. Kinda makes your toes tingle a bit. :)
