For our first Christmas, The Husband gave me a JD riding lawn mower...
I was thrilled - honest...I wanted it more than diamonds, more than
anything that could have come in a Nordstrom's box.
That mower lasted more than 20 years, the above shot is of the seat of the
"new rider"...she's a beauty.
feed with a big red bucket. A few years ago I got really good at
running this beast. Before that, I was rather skittish when it came
to running farm equipment, things changed here on the
farm and I accepted the responsibilities of feeding livestock.
The Husband wasn't around during the day so making
sure "the girls" got fed was up to me, I even got good at
backing up the tractor with a mixer wagon attatchment...
I was officially a farm chick.
