I felt really bad for the lawn mowing kid as after he ascertained that no one was hurt, he began to tell us how his day had gone. The first mower would not start and when he finally got it going, the blade caught on the internal shroud and messed it up totally. He called the property owner who eventually brought another old mower (the one that trashed my van) and while waiting for him to show up, the battery died on this kid's car! Then, he blows out the rear window of a van. It sure was not a good day for him.
Anyway, the van is in the shop and should be repaired tomorrow. The cost will be less than my $1,000 deductible but the property owner said he would pay for it. Heck, even the lawn mowing kid offered to pay for it. So, it's going to all work out without any major problems and we all have a great story to tell. . . . Hey, did you hear about the time my van window was blown out by something thrown by a lawnmower? Yeah, there's lots of mileage in that one for sure!
