Mowing for me is like fishing for other guys...just love doing it

Keeps a guy fit, keeps a guy one with nature, just you and your machine rolling across the lawn. Is there anything better than that? Well, yeah...other than THAT is there anything better? I don't think so. I'm 50 now and I've done a lot of things in this life, but fishing doesn't do it for me, movies are ok, restaurants, vacations are fine, running other business ventures is good, but give me a 75 degree sunny day in October, an open 10 ac field, a freshly-serviced stander and MAN, THAT'S THE LIFE! Some guys just like mowing grass. I'm one of 'em.

I have to agree. I like to deer hunt and trap in the off-season, but I am always anxious to start mowing again. Even when its 100 degrees and humid as heck, I still would rather mow grass than anything else. I love everything about it. Mowing, trimming, blowing. It is an excuse to play with toys (equipment).

The only thing I don't like is dealing with some employees, but nothing is perfect.

Couldn't have said it better.

I don't trap, but I like guns, shooting, hunting etc more than anything, but mowing is an extremely close second, and the older I get, the closer it comes to a being a tie. I have always liked to mow, and "play with the toys". The better/stronger/more powerful they make them, the more I like them.

Sure do. They're what they use to soak up all the lies leaking from the current administration.

what's not to like about mowing grass? The sun, the outdoors, nobody bothering you...
