Going Way Back

These iPhone photos are many years old and show where I used to work when I did commercial lawn work for 20 years. The old Ransomes mower was the first mower, then came a new John Deere 60-inch front-mounted mower deck and zero-radius turning. A great machine. I miss the hard work, it’s good for you!

    • The iPhone’s light was on I think, not sure, this was a few years ago in Michigan. The shed was my mother’s, she looooved working with plants and could grow anything! Mom passed in 2012. πŸ˜ͺβœοΈπŸ™πŸ»

        • Never. I see little older ladies in the store and sometimes I almost cry right there. I have photos of her here in my living room. I sometimes talk to her. πŸ˜ͺπŸ™πŸ»

    • Thanks, Marcus, I miss those days! Hard work, biting insects and getting hit by debris discharged from the mower deck! 😊

  1. That must have been great to work outdoors instead of being stuck in an office. I love being outdoors but always worked inside so any chance I get, I go outside.

    • Thanks Susan, I see it as a privilege to have worked 20 years there. Not just mowing and trimming, but also driving large tractors pulling bush hogs and twice a year, hitting the interstate to drive the boss’ antique cars to Florida and back. ❀️

        • Really? I am guessing that the term bush hog is a regional American dialect. We also call them a Brush Hog. I use the term Aye here and there once in a while and also the word Cripe or Cripes.

          My research into this word indicates that the word Cripe originated in the United Kingdom long ago. Americans and the people of the UK are very much the same people in my opinion. πŸ‘πŸ»πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡ΈπŸ‡¬πŸ‡§

    • John Deere is the top of the line in lawn mowers and more, Anita. If I had a lawn here I would have a John Deere push mower. All I have is palm trees, faux grass and decorative stone in the backyard, and decorative stone and palm trees in the front yard.
