Mowing Obsession continued....

Remember last week when I posted about my husband's mowing obsession?

Well, I suppose part of the obsession is due in part to all these mower's he keeps inheriting. Or maybe he keeps inheriting them because of his obsession?

I don't know...either way, please give a warm welcome to the *ahem* 'newest' *ahem* mower of the family.

Allen's Grandfather's Mower.

Sorry I cannot give you exact specs on this bad boy. I think it was manufactuered in 1875 and since then, the name of the beast has worn off. Reasonably so.

*This post is taking place of a post I could have written about a '2 dog and a cat fight' that broke out early this morning only to end in a flat of my seedlings destroyed, with soil and broken containers all over my carpet!Seedlings that perished in the fight were Onions & Cabbage :( I think I was able to revive the Cuc's...time will tell. And some flower seeds that hadn't sprouted yet, so we'll see what happens to those too. 2 dogs and the cat are grounded until further notice.

Woe to the man (and the woman who married him) who is known to accept old mowers. They come out of the woodwork, don't they? ;)
