Ladies, if your husband spends hours cutting grass and he let's you feel sorry for him, you've been duped! Cutting grass on a riding mower is FUN!
I have two riding mowers.
I love my John Deere. It's a "regular" riding mower. Riding on it is pretty much a time for relaxation and meditation. I put on a wide-brimmed hat and take along a glass of something cold. It's really nice.
I have also fallen in love with the Skag mower, which is the one Rudy always used. It's a zero-turn mower. It's in a whole other league! Forget meditation. This one is like a cross between a go-cart and a video game. It's FUN!
All these years, when we divided chores around the house, I had things like cooking, doing dishes and cleaning toilets. Rudy cut the grass. He spent hours doing it. Without complaint. Now I know why. Dangit. He got me. I'll bet he's up there laughing at me right now.
