Now This Tops All Scrubs!!!! Top This Sighting!!!!!

Well i think that i saw the one to top all of you. OK i was getting ready to go to the store, and i heard something coming down the road, so as i looked to see what it was, i saw a 10 speed bike, with a 2.5 gal gas can tied with rope on the handle bars, and being puled behind it was a 3.5 hp Murry push mower, the guy on the bike had it tied about 3 ft behind him and "they were booking it" Now i do not feel so bad any more. All i could think of was the poor little wheels on the push mower moving down the road at speeds in excess of 15 mph Now that is one way to save on the over head, turn your mower into a trailer and power the rig with peddle power Well now i m big time. OK now you all have your work cut out for you. TOP IT!!!!!!!!

Tuesday morning I saw a man pushing a old push mower with a rake balanced on the handle bars and a one gallon gas can sitting on top of the push mower. Had a pair of shears stuck threw his belt. He would probably like to have had a bike to pull his equipment! Thiis was in an upscale neighborhood too.

This is one of the reasons I always keep a camera handy. Weather it be my digital or a cheap disposable. That was definitly a kodak moment.
