Forget about grandma and grandpa pulling a trailer with a beat up pickup and Murray. I was coming out of Hardees and here comes a lawnservice with a man, at least, 65+ in a decked out Isuzu-two Toro riders and weedeaters on both sides. Grandma got out and could barely make it into the building-I thought i was going to have to call an ambulance:dizzy: These people should be in Florida right now in their retirement home but they just spent their 401K on lawn equip. It looked like they went out and bought out a lawn care. This truck should have had someone 30 yrs. younder driving it. How long are they going to last in this heat?:confused: I'm not trying to offend anyone but everyone is doing this and spending big money!!!!!!!!

Yea, people gotta eat but there's a lot of different things to do. They didn't have a "substitute the income" rig, they had a "I'm going to have to work 12 hrs a day to pay for it" rig. Like I said, the wife could barely make it into the building-not a job for people that age. ;)

Me to, but I swear I think this guy just woke up and decided to mow lawns and bought this decked out rig. Why else would he have had his wife working with him? If he would have been doing it a while, he would have had a couple of Mexicans with him Instead. He should have spent that money on an RV.:laugh::laugh:
