OPE......or not ?


MY WIFE'S RIDE-ON LAWN MOWER IS NOW FOR SALE















Here’s the story...................It’s still hard to believe the way it turned out.

My wife said she wanted a ride-on lawn mower.

She works all day and was always tired when she came home from work and I thought that a ride-on lawn mower
would help her get the yard work done quicker so she would have more time for the chores inside.

So, being the handy sort of guy that I am, I made her a ride-on lawn mower.


I thought she would squeal with delight or something and give me a big hug.

I even put a light on it so she could work at night after she finishes putting away the dinner dishes.

To this day I still can’t understand why some women are so hard to please!


(see photo below)

















P.S. I can see out of my left eye pretty well now and should be able to leave the hospital sometime next week!

That's a funny story. You could have saved a trip to the hospital if you at "least" gave her a self propelled model.

Toro 8/24 (38080) 1989
Toro 721-QZR (38743) 2015 (Hemi Predator Power)
Toro (51984) Hand Held Blower (For the light stuff)

Experience is something you don't get until just after you need it.

Maybe it was the wrong color for her.
OPE......or not ?-unknown.jpeg

Or maybe she would prefer a recumbent.
OPE......or not ?-images.jpeg

Or, maybe a rotary instead of a reel.
OPE......or not ?-unknown-1.jpeg

Just better cover that right eye when you bring one of these babies out for her.

Ha!

That reminds me of this:

~1994 Ariens 924084 (ST1032) "papa bear": restored, re-engined, real nice!
1991 Ariens 924050 (ST824) "mama bear"
Toro PowerCurve 1800 "baby bear"

Be alert! America needs more lerts.
