Picked this up today.
Complete assembly required Got it all together though. Picked up a nicer spray gun for it too, kinda like a pressure washer gun. Since the Deere has a controllable 12 volt plug, I also got a 2 prong quick connect extension cable and 12 volt male to 2 prong connection to make things easier. It came with a long cable with an online switch and alligator clips... That's nice and all but the battery is at the very front of the mower and didn't really want to deal with that. Thinking of figuring out a way to mount a spare 12 volt battery I have sitting around to the front of it so Susan can use it without even bothering to hook it up.

Ouch! Get better.
Had the P.E. teacher in Elementary school, (60's) Tried to somersault over kids, didn't made it twisted to missed them--- Broke his neck, they fused it together. He walked straight and tall when he got back, about a year or so later.

Sacrificed myself, tried landing with a super wide stance and rolled ankle bad. No break though, so hopefully I will be good soon. But it does still hurt more than fractures I have had in the past, so we will see...

Wow, not many people do that anymore.

I can remember my grand mother had a room off of the kitchen full of canned food. She would do a lot. She even went out and gathered wild plums to make preserves out of. My great aunt did the same and she had a summer kitchen to do that in that was all screened in.

Yeah, just about a lost art. I grew up around hear on a large farm for this area and we canned everything even meats and fish, sometimes picked upward of 100 gallons of blackberries. I live in my grandfathers house that I purchased shortly after I got married it's over 100 years old and has a decent sized cellar that we keep our canned goods in. We've never had to buy any beans, corn, potatoes, greens and several other goods since we've lived here( 30+ years now). It's a lot of work and sometimes I think it's cheaper to buy but have the satisfaction of carrying on a tradition. My grand father even smoked and cured a lot of his own meats which I do some but on a much smaller scale as the old smoke house is gone and I just have one of the smaller electric smokers. We even ground our on cornmeal when I grew up boy how things change in a hurry. I'm not an antique yet but sometimes feel like it, I like to compare growing up here to the Walton's as they're a lot of similarities although there was no depression or anything like that but just a large farmhouse and 10 kids and grandma and grandpa next door.

When ya grow up hungry in the depression era, it changes your whole way of thinking when it comes to sustenance and the work involved in canning/smoking, putting up food for the hard/lean times to come.

I can't imagine not having the shelves of canned and dried food and the freezers of home grown beef and pork. It's a lot of work but is totally self-sustaining. The only down side is the blasted deer and elk always thinking we're growing it for them.
