Oh my word!

I had no idea that this would finish anywhere top ten.

I was so bored with it that I didn't even enter any photog notes until now (post challenge)... Thinking no one would ever see them.

There are others that I like so much better!

I thank you all for your generous votes!

This is my Daddy's push mower. I doubt if he ever used it. I don't even know where he got it.

Golly! I miss that man.

Congrats on the blue, Lydia. Thanks for the bit of nostalgia. I'm old enough for that mower to mean something to me.

Love this, Lydia. My grandpa mowed his yard with one of these, only a much earlier model. :-)

No better gardening experience than that whrrrrr, and the grass spewing out in a soft green rainbow. But not for the first 10 pushes, as you always need to relearn the knack of a clean-cut swagger.

Thanks.
