Yep, Looks like she's enjoying her New EK7 :D

 

On a side note:

reading the Bolens literature, the Estate Keeper was put on the market to try and attract Women into the Garden Tractor Market.

The EK boasted maneuverability way ahead of its time and its front mount attachments and ease of operation made  it the best mower on the market at the time.

That picture in the glad's reminds me of the time my Dad rented 2 acres with the idea of growing Glads. He abandoned that plan and planted sweet corn instead. There is a Casey's General store on that site now?
