Drove 12 miles round trip...

 

And the girl that did Gia's hair.... Lives 60 yards from

Me around the corner.....

 

And for 20 minutes... For Gia's hairdo.. $45 slipped out 

Of my wallet.... I'm in the wrong business. 

 

 

Or  just happy that I'm not a girl.....

 

 

But the only thing that counts....

 

Is Gia is happy...

I got a new zero turn riding lawn mower. SCAG Liberty Z 48" cut with a Kawasaki 21 HP motor. Never had a zero turn mower, these things are fun and they do a great job in half the time

 

Also $5 at a garage sale plus $3 for a battery?

You will love the Kawasaki motor. If you get too spify with  going around trees you will tend to circle them.

Actually yesterday, but I bought a used Husqvarna mower for the rental duplex my sons rent from me.  It seemed like a good deal offered by my son’s friend who helped with a lot of work at the duplex, but I was concerned when he informed me he couldn’t get it to start after sitting for two years, since he now uses a lawn service.  I thought I bought a like new lightly used mower, not a project.

 

The good news is it runs like a champ and is a really good deal.  A splash of fresh gas in the carb demonstrated good spark.  After filling the tank with good gas (diluting the stale gas), it fired right up.  After warming it up, the gas tank was emptied so the warmed oil could be drained and fresh oil installed.

 

The motor starts easily with a single pull.  Everything works.  I was surprised to see USA Briggs & Stratton power.  I’d expected some exotic Scandinavian lump.

Nice mower. I like to mow my own lawn. Last year I paid someone to mow. I kinda felt left out.

The way they photograph those mowers makes me chuckle... the low angle aggressive stance pose is overly reminiscent of a performance automakers subliminal attractiveness.
