I usually don't post pictures of family members. Not their faces, anyway. But this is something you've gotta see!
Friday morning I walked through the living room and caught a glimpse of Hick out front, mowing the yard. The sight was breathtaking! You be the judge:
That's Hick's $1700 mower. The one he drove off and bought one afternoon without telling me, until he drove it by the front porch later that evening as I was snacking the dogs, and I asked where it came from.
He might try to justify it now, though. Because his mowing ensemble came cheap.
Hick swears that he didn't specifically put on that shirt because it matches his mower. I call poppycock!
Hat- $4.00 from Tractor Supply
Overalls- FREE, given to Hick by HOS, who had them given to him for free also
Hemming of the overalls- $5 from a freelance seamstress
T-shirt- FREE, from a tool show in Florida, says DeWalt on the front (maker of hand tools like saws and drills)
Yes, Hick was a meticulous little mower! Even though, as you can see, the summer heat and lack of rain has made that job somewhat unnecessary.
Back and forth he went, vroom-vroom, combing that undergrown yard. Not even giving me a quizzical look for standing on the porch pointing my phone at him until his third trip.
I figured I had enough blog ammunition, and went to the kitchen to wash some dishes. After the water was run, I noticed that I no longer heard the mower. Huh. I went out front to take a gander, and saw THIS:
It was a Hickless mower! Meh. Stranger things that this have happened around this place! I got in T-Hoe and started to town. At the end of the driveway, I encountered Hick rounding the bend from the BARn field on his Gator. He'd run out of gas, and had just enough in a red gas can to finish off the yard.
Hick's not much of a planner, but he can put together a mowing ensemble like nobody's business!
