The years rolled on. Soon, I had my own home and lawn. I used a push mower to handle the grass. Nice and quiet. Powered by my own sweat.
More years roll on. Now my "lawn" is several acres. I still use that push mower around the edges of the house, garage, fence and so on. The rest of the grass requires something more than an open cylinder with revolving knife blades powered by my measly sweat.
Enter: the Lawn Tractor. Grampa's riding lawn mower was a Tonka Toy in comparison!
Thanks Grampa. My time on your mower helped prepare me for this milestone. I'm moving up a cut.
