Spruced up the yard today. Got the mower out of the shed, pushed it around to the front yard, ran the extension cord to the garage and plugged it in. Made one pass across the yard, flipped the handle over and walked around to the other side of the mower, getting ready to make the second pass, when I caught sight of a hitchhiking mouse sitting on the engine cover. When I gave the handle a shake to urge him to jump down he ducked into the gap in the deck where the handle’s attached to the mower, and when I tipped the mower over on its side, then back upright again, he was still in there. I had to poke him with a stick to finally get him to dismount and run off into the bushes.
