There once was a woman who had a big backyard that needed to have the grass cut very often during this rainy summer. So, she bought herself a nice Honda push mower that did the job and was self-propelled after all. Not that hard a job!
But, then came the opportunity from her dad’s next door neighbor who was moving, to purchase a Sears Craftsman cute red riding lawn mower for $400.
Sold, she said!
That was quite a steal for a used riding lawn mower and she knew that she would love flying around the backyard on that cute red mower.
She had never been on a riding lawn mower before, but she could just imagine it would be similar to riding a go-cart or a golf cart,and she’d be right.
Nothing to it!
But, first they had to get it to her house from her parent’s house. So, her hard working daddy and mom came over to deliver the mower. That might be a little bit of a feat, since the darn thing weighs a lot. But, her smart dad came up with the idea of backing it up next to the hill in her front yard, rolling it down 2 pieces of lumber that were sturdy and strong.
Hey, y’all, look at this!
What every redneck family does, right? back that thing right off the truck. There were a few nervous moments, but over all, everything went just perfect.
Her dad got it cranked up and started backing. Once the wheels touched the wood boards, it wouldn’t go up. But, they found a way to do it by pushing it in neutral and moved it up and over those boards.
Once those wheels came over the top, they were good to go. The people with the red riding lawn mower.
Then that daddy of hers backed it on down the ramp and into the yard. Easy as pie!
And she was a happy girl, clapping her hands in glee! She had her own cute red mower now. Once her very cautious dad gave her a few lessons on how to start the mower, put the blade down and how it all worked, she got busy in that backyard with the tall grass. It’s a wonder he didn’t stay and watch it all to be sure she knew what she was doing.
She spun around and around on that cute red mower. Her roommate took these pics from afar.
She drove that cute red mower, making circles that cut the grass down all with an excited intensity.
Round and round she went until that grass was looking really good, smiling all the way. This is not work at all!
She had fun with her red mower and got that grass cut in record time. Should she hire her roommate to be her new photographer? Maybe not.
A used red riding lawn mower makes for a happy girl!
Cute red mowers and tall grass are quite the pair. Cutting grass will never be the same again, with this toy in her garage. She can’t wait to get all the junk cleaned up in the backyard, so that she can really have fun with her new toy.
There are always lessons to be learned though. One word of caution. If you have a riding lawn mower, she wants you to know that you should always disengage the blade before riding that lawn mower into the garage to park it. If there is carpet on the concrete floor, it will be sucked into the blade and hacked to smithereens. That, and the engine will shut off. Don’t tell her Daddy she did that,
OK? It’s our little secret.
Thank goodness, all is still well with the cute red mower.
