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.
