I went with a buddy to look at anold Bolens Lawn Keeper. which he bought. :dancingbanana:

 

 

While we were there I bought an old craftsman rider mower " basket case." :dancingbanana:

 

When I got it home the wife told me how cute it is, and immediately claimed it for herself.(As soon as I finish it!!!)   I had already given her an old Springfield that was "so cute".   Now she has TWO and I only have 12 of which only 6 run!!   I tried to explain how she was way ahead of me but she's not listening, and I got "THE LOOK " ...... AGAIN.   :mad2:

 

I may have to move this up the list of projects before I find another one for me. :D  :D

You guys are looking at this all wrong. Fix hers up immediately. Then explain that you need to build a big shed to keep it out of the weather. Later tell her it will only cost a little more to build a big barn with electricity and heat. You want to take care of her tractors. And, if she wants to collect them like shoes so much the better for you. Remember, I'm in your corner, we are all in this together.

I Wouldn't GIVE my wife a junky little rider like that!  I hate those and think they are unsafe and hard to use on our rough yard.  Guess what I'm saying is "shouldn't have brought it home" in first place. No Koo Doos from Me on THIS rig!

Be careful when you get the look.  I think it means something that we don't understand, but it is never good for any of us.

I have a nice doghouse. I figure if I am going to be in it I might as well be comfortable.

You should have bought the Bolens Ground Keeper for her.

My wife wants a GT of her own too. Not sure what I will come up with.

That just means you have to take her to a bunch of shows and check out ones for sale locally.
