    Oh, the irony.

    Why is John wearing no shirt and no shoes, but is wearing long pants?
    I see the problem with the lawn chair. Most lawn chairs I have seen are anchored directly to the back legs, but this one has some kind of metal bracket holding the seat to the back legs. It looks like a poorly-designed chair and John is the beneficiary of that design.

    I do not wear shorts, I don’t like them.

    No, It’s not the design. That chair is like almost all the others – it is stable when it is fully extended pushed backwards and to fold easily when pulled forwards.

    John slid forward as he sat down and (deservedly), got his comeuppance.

    I remember electric lawn mowers from back in the late 60s / early 70s: do they still make them or have they become a thing of the past?

    I don’t know if they still make them now, but we had an electric mower when I was a kid. The extension cord my Dad used with it had two or three big electrical tape tumors on it from where he had run over the cord.

    What led up to the situation depicted? John just finished mowing the lawn and decided instead of unplugging it and putting the mower away, he would just sit down in the lawn chair and read instead. Or he was mowing the lawn, hadn’t finished yet, but decided he had to stop for a lounging break and left the mower ready for more mowing. Neither option seems particularly safe around kids.

    You have no definition. Don’t you want to look good for Ted

    So what is today’s lesson? “It is all fun and games until someone loses an eye”?

    I think Snoopy got chomped by a lawn chair once. Lawn chairs can be vicious! ; )
