dead mower

Our mower finally died.  Actually it runs great, but the wheels keep falling off, so we had to spring for a new one.  We had this mower for 12 years.  It was a good mower, but the hills took their toll on the rear wheel drive.  I bet I fixed it ten different times.  In the last few years I have had to buy new gears for it every single season.  No more.  Now it is someone else's problem.  I put it out on the street one morning.  Free mower. When I came home for lunch it had already been picked up by it's new owner.

By the way, did I tell you that I am a lucky guy?  My wife likes to mow the grass.  She gets mad at me when I do it.  So now she has a new mower with wheels that work.

It's a beautiful day in God's world, be sure to see the good.

Three cheers for Cathy and her new mower. Guys who pop for new mowers usually have a heart that eventually will pop for a new car.

I'm with Cathy. I love to mow. For me, it's 90 minutes of time I get to spend by myself in conversation with God with little distraction.
