Goodbye, Lawn Mower

It's time to trade in the lawn mower. It has become incontinent--leaking oil onto the garage floor. Even though it just had its annual physical exam at the hardware store a couple of months ago, it's now back there again, on life support. This faithful servant of 22 years has to be retired from service.

The man who is the mower of the lawn at my house still loves to ride around in green circles for an hour every other week. He's 78, and he probably doesn't have 22 years of service remaining. Nevertheless, he is choosing a new riding mower and continuing to serve his community in many different ways. 


  1. Oil leaks could be a very difficult ordeal. Not only that oil is wasted, dealing with the ground on which it spills also becomes another pain in the neck. Anyway, I’m pretty sure that that lawn mower had some tough times, and has mowed a lot of lawn. Thanks for sharing this with us, Cheryl. Have a great day!

  3. Hey, really it's an amazing blog I must say. But here you have told that for lawn mowers we have to use this ridding machine. And for that again we have to buy this machine. But I'll suggest everyone lawn mowing gold coast because when you need to mow your garden grass you can just call or hire them. They'll make it done just at a reasonable price.
