    It was time to retire the 9 year old John Deere lawn tractor.

    Life is a balancing act, enjoy every day, "later" will come sooner than you think. Denying yourself joy now betting you will have health and money to enjoy life later is a bad bet.

    Ariens brings back memories, we had a lawn mower/snow blower which was pretty versatile with a swap of the front end. It was very loud as the muffler rusted away. One cold day after a snow my dad put it in the greenhouse to warm it up before starting. He let it rip and our cat, who had been sleeping on a high shelf, exited the greenhouse very fast through the door. And I mean through the door!

    Did my first full mowing this afternoon and learned two things. This thing is FAST and when it encounters an obstacle that would have stopped my old John Deere, Landscape timber, concrete block ect, it moves it and keeps on mowing. This could be a double edged sword............
