i had a jug this evening that looked to be at the bottom , i finished off the sweet vermouth a few days ago so i thought to kill it neat , i guess it was a poor judgement call on quantity left , 

ill do my best to treat it right tho , might be a later morning tomorrow than ive been doing - but then i had planned to cut the grass adter firing up the mower or mowers [i have three] and was a tad concerned as to how they suffered the winter , may need new battery's in the two lawn tractors , one has been out all winter the other i brought in in february , that second might start - it was running great when i brought it home , the push mower has probably sat three years without running but we shall see , 

i have not ever had a good experience with small engines , we just dont get along well , my chain saw was diagnosed as "too old to fix" last week , ill probably buy a replacement but i hate the idea , my leaf blower is starting to give me fits and my two weed whips are as well [one is a string cutter the other a bade type brush cutter] im getting too old to want to spend money on these things , 

sorry about venting ....maybe tomorrow will go well and ill be smiling of all of this ....................

for now ill drink my three fingers of bourbon and relax

The ethanol in fuel really plays havoc on small engine carburetors.  The new small engines today are probably designed for this, but if you have old lawn mowers, leaf blowers, trimmers, chain saws, pressure washers, etc. you must use an additive to counter the affects of ethanol.  The only other option is to drain the fuel and run the carb dry each time you use it.  I’d guess we have a mountain of these tools just thrown out over the years because of ethanol.  

I hear you about the bourbon.  I wait until the weekend for that LOL
