Well the time has come to cut my lawn, i have not done it in 3 weeks or so,i wrenched my back out, could barely walk, fell and dislocated my shoulder,they injected me with pain killers only to drive my blood pressure through the roof making me ill for a week( not ill enough to stop me from buying 2 more tractors, will post pics later), feeling much better except for the shoulder, but the time is now or i will be looking for a bush hog to go through it. i have nothing else planned for the day( dont tell the wife, she will think of something) so 5-6 hours seat time and a few brown pops to kill the pain in my shoulder should be in order, if that does not work we'll switch to whiskey ha ha !!!!!!!

Seat time sounds good.
Hope the mowing dont bug the shoulder to much.
Oh, & be careful othe barley pops, best case you mow off some prized petunias... Worst case we get to see the cops dash cam footage on YouTube. :smilewink:

If that was me I'd have the wife mow and sit back and enjoy the beer ! ( she likes seat time from time to time )

Good Luck with the healing. Take it real easy on that shoulder. I hurt mine 20 years ago and it took months to heal and it was easy to reinjure.

I agree with Lmiller3358 that you should see if the wife wants to do it. The downside is she may like it too much. But, maybe that isn't a downside. Good Luck, Rick

i never drink and drive, and very rarely drink, i wont even have 1 beer if i have to drive within 3-4 hrs, i have let my wife cut the lawn on the garden tractor before, blew all the clippings into my gardens, cut up my garden hose, wrapped the dogs chain around the blades and got it hung up on the fencing all within 45 min and somehow it all ended up being my fault, go figure, i rather be haying

The last time I let my wife use the tractor i came home and she was mowing the 20 acre pasture with my Massey MF-8 hydro and 32 inch deck. Like I said it was the last time

not me, I dont like anything in my yard, if its there I'll mow it down, lol

EDIT: PS, I'm half blind, if somethings in the yard I cant see it until I run over it, then I cant identify it after that
