I didn't even watch it, the pic was just too funny.

last summer I gave my beat up 16 year old riding mower to one of the guys at work and bought a new one. It was sad- it had so many issues that it wasn't worth paying to fix, but it was in such good shape otherwise that if you fix cars for a living and this drops into your lap, you can fix it in your spare time and have a great mower.

It came up in conversation today, and I asked him how it was. He said he spent $85 on parts and put in half a day and it's his main mower now. I was thrilled to hear it- the work to do it was beyond my abilities and available time, and the rest of the mower was just too good to scrap. It's living on and running strong.

I feel like I gave up a dog to go live on a farm somewhere, and it's actually living on that farm, not just a line in a story you tell your kids.
