New things...

So, until yesterday, we didn't have a lawn mower here and the weeds/grass were like knee high.  We'd been borrowing a push mower from our neighbors across the street.  I felt bad doing that every time we needed to mow.  Wayne was supposed to be getting the mower from his old house, but it wasn't coming here any time soon, so he was talking about buying a new one and selling the old one on craigslist.  I said, "Why now look for one on craigslist to buy, instead of buying a new one at the store?" 

So that's what we did, and that's how we ended up with this little guy.  He KICKS ASS.  Not to mention it's killer fun to mow.  I've never mown before.  Ever. Growing up, my backyard was concrete painted green.  I'm serious.  So getting on this and cutting grass was waaaaay fun.  I think Wayne and I might have to flip a coin to see who gets to mow the lawn now.





I think Wayne said we gave the guy $300 for it.  It runs great and cut through our massive weeds with no problem.

Yipee!  New toys!1

Hey now... that DOES look fun! I've never been on a riding mower. Very cool! The picture of you though... where are you at? Is that your yard or are you mowing the neighbors house too? It just looks so big! And what is the sign in the background?

I was mowing in the backyard when Wayne took that picture. The house sits on half an acre but there's no fences around so it looks huge. The sign in the background is for Kountry Kraft cabinets, the factory across the road from our yard.
