New riding lawnmover

My wife always wanted a riding lawn mower.



She works all day and was always tired when

she came home from work and thought that

a riding lawn mower would help her get the

yard work done quicker so she would have

more time for the chores inside the house.



SO, being the handy sort of guy that I am,

I made her a riding lawn mower.

I guess I thought she would squeal with delight

or something and give me a big hug.

To this day I have never been able to understand

why some women are so hard to please.




So she thanked me for it on my next ride!

Don't tell me, let me guess. The guy offered to let you test ride it in his yard?

Nashbar sold (or at least tried to sell) some kind of pedal-powered mower quite a few years ago.
