I bought a Toro this time and a new push mower with high wheels from Sears . I still have my Wheel Hi=orse tractor I bought in 1987 and use it where the ground is tricky. LOL Plus my old hand mower I bought in 1984 and it still fires up. Now I have 2 of all the boy toys including 2 weedeaters. All are red which is a lucky color for me to have. No problems with any of them yet except I don't have the strength to start my old Homelite weedeater. Just too skinny at 132 lbs.

Hi, I've just bought a Toro too - seeing how it will be awhile before Kris has the energy to mow.
This is one fantastic mower, gets through my acreage in record time. Bet Kris is hankering to use the mower himself its so good.
It is also red - my favourite colour.
Enjoy your toys.

This is a crazy weather day here again. A few flakes and nasty wind all day. It feels like winter again. I spend all of my time keeping busy in the yard, basement or garage and this weather is making me antsy. LOL I want out in some nice air and sunshine.

I've heard of popping the cork, but leave it to you to do it in your own way. It is good to see you posting again. sounds like a triumphant return to your hospital/prison (oops, showing my bias and that was with only 12 days not 3 months)
I can see you on that tractor enjoying yourself
Mow some for me

Charm I mowed the back yard this evening with the Old Wheel Horse and did it just in your Honor old buddy. I'm glad to be back and read your posts as well as most of the others. You always give me a smile.

tamvonk. I bought an aerator from Sears today and did the putting together in my gargae tonite. What a lot of pieces. I just followed the pictures and used my air ratchet to make things easy. Have fun with the Toro as I do. LOL

Wouldn't it be nice if we all had the money to have a meeting, like a reunion somewhere we all could afford? I think it would be better than a family reunion . Our OFC family is great.
