Check your cables at the starter. If you can twist them by hand they need cleaned and retightened. If you want you can call me at 740-894-7600 days, 740-237-2550. It could also be the solenoid, the thing bolted on top of the starter. Sounds like a starters your best bet. Here"s a test while a friend turns the key, tap gently (real gently) on the starter. If it starts then replace it.

If you want more ideas and tests call the numbers, easier before dark.
