Today I set up my pressure washer I got at Home Depot. I made sure ro follow the instructions as to how to properly fill the oil and did so in the house on a nice level surface.
Took it outside and filled the gas tank with ethanol free gas mixed with fuel stabilizer per instructions.
Turned on the gas. Turned on the engine. Pulled the cord and it started after a few tugs. Yay!
Started power washing the wire rabbit cages to get them ready for breeding season. Had to turn off the washer to stretch out the hose attached to the wand.
Pull the cord. Nothing. WTH? It started up no problem before. What did I do wrong? Crap! Did I mess something up already? Ive only used it five minutes!
Keep trying to start it. Wont start. Take it inside and remove this plastic piece on the front of the drain plug thinking maybe thats the problem. Nope. Still wont start.
So I call my neighbor over thinking maybe it needs man-power to pull start it. Dont know why. It started no problem with me earlier. Fine.
So he gets here and sees right away that I have the switch to start the engine in the OFF position. Oops.
Of course, it was something simple. Always is. I hate it when I have moments like that. Im dying my hair black.

Have a tiller that has "lost" the sticker on it directing use and no owner manual. Always have issues with which button or switches to use and when! Which way is on??? :lol:

I've made a list of filter #s, oil/fluid types, blade size, etc, brands, serial # s, for the tractor, mowers, tillers, generator and such.....that I can print to keep with me....always need on spur of moment! Trying to keep one in truck & one with my debit cards in the wallet. Helps me. I try to keep owner manuals on computer.

Today when I got home I bred my two proven does. I bred Belle to my white NZ buck, Buckaroo Bonzai, and my white NZ doe, Betty White, to my red NZ buck, Leo.
Im going to wait breeding the two does I kept from the last litter in December when they are about 8 months old. I can breed the white one to Leo since he isnt her Dad, and the red one to my white buck.
Still havent tattooed them yet. Need to get that done. Too much to do and not enough time. ;)
