First I had to assess the situation. This required me to disassemble the equipment. I get my mechanical skills from Dad.
Eureka! I found the problem. We just need a new battery. This is a win, win situation for me. Not only did I solve the problem which granted me unconditional affection, but needing a new battery will likely result in me taking a ride in Dad's truck. Perfect!
I hope everyone considers this blog a helpful reminder.
