When you do not have to cut the lawn any more grin

My boy is cutting the entire lawn by him self today, after many times and hours of teaching him how to run the mower:

My boy almost done at 6:49pm:

He is 11, but is doing a good job.

Makes me think of the first time my old man let me cut the grass grin

I figure I would share. Pretty proud and getting him ready for next year wink

Even though things look rough in our country, one can still find enjoyment in the subtle things in life, like this smile.

I think that's awesome. He's got new responsibilities and you get a little more free time. It doesn't hurt that he gets to learn on a nice piece of equipment.

psssh, girls can cut grass as good as any guy. My neighbor is female and single and she's been cutting grass for the 20 y ears I've known her.

Isn't that the truth. My neighbor is a lawn Nazi and I can't keep up with her. She mows virtually every other day and fertilizes like a mad woman.... She is super cool though and has gave me some pointers.

i hear ya, but theres only so much you can say and do, THEN they start rebeling. i know. i try to get to know the individual fisrt, then past judgement. what ive found is that if,boyfriend-girlfriend isnt afriad to [PoorWordUsage] with ya they should be ok. if they dont want to be around when your there i think twice. IMO.

My Son (11) and Daughter (10) both enjoy driving the JD GT around the yard. They were both rather useful in helping move a couple of yards of dirt from the trailer to some new planting areas in the yard. Both of them had no problem using shovels or driving the garden tractor. They might as well start learning how to back up a vehical with a trailer attached. Nice picture of your son on the mower.

    • Where is the part where I say I am OK with it?
    • The CWD 'outbreak' in the 4 counties in the NW part of Wisconsin I believe is one case in the NW part of Barron County, or some where close to where those counties all meet.  All counties within X miles (40 miles?) of a positive result are considered CWD counties.  For the year or two after the found positive in that area the MN DNR did test deer in the neighboring MN area(s.)  I was hunting in both Burnett County, WI and east of Hinckley, MN in the year the positive test was found.  It's been awhile, the numbers might be off, but that was generally what happened.   How much money do you want our DNR to spend on so few positive results so far away?
    • We should never have Koivu on the ice in a 3 on 3 OT...Wait, he scored last night. He is phenomenal in OT, finishes with the same move Parise tried moments before him and failed. WTG Koivu! Insert half sarcastic, half praise here... Needed the win, got it. Mcdavid held in check.   Parise is the highest paid 4th line player. There is still something wrong with him. His stride hasn't looked right in over a year. Hope he just stays off the ice if he isn't going to get it together.
    • Looks like after today we'll be making some of the hard stuff!!! Here in the metro anyways
    • Waiting on a reply from the DNR but should be soon
    • They are all the same as the other hook models just a different screen. The Hook is just a re-branded Elite Chrip.
    • Appeared to be a nice product. I was not impressed with the sales guy or who ever he was at the Blane show. I asked if they sell the LED extrusion they had running along both sides of the trailer and he said its their own design I can get them if I buy a trailer bla bla bla... Once I stepped away a salesman from Coates RV said that he can get the extrusion for me being its nothing special! I have little time for people that lie to me, if he didn't know a better answer is no we don't sell to the public or i don't know.
    • One reason for me to be muzzleloading is to scout areas for next bow season.  I liked this low area I found yesterday.  I got a good feel for how the deer use it.  Saw one small 8 and had two put their tracks in mine, but out of sight.  I'd hunt it differently with a bow.  
    • wear a good balaclava and get a open face with a cold weather breath box never had a problem
