BD, You're a lucky guy :)

Yard parades are a good thing. Looks like everyone is :D :D :D

Congratulations on the new LowBoy. It looks real nice.

Bigdog it looks like you had a very good day :!: :!:

My two year old grandson arrived today and decided that my newly painted hood/tank was better suited to be a drum. His stick was a 6 D cell aluminum flashlight. Got to fix a couple of dents and repaint. Once the little fella gets out of the hospital we'll have a great time :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: 8)

Yeah - I'm sure you really wailed away on him! - NOT! :lol: :lol:

You're right of course :lol:

It was my fault for leaving it where he could get to it. It won't be too long before I have to hide the keys 8)

My 3 year-old grandson will show you how to start a cub. He knows where the on / off switch is and wher the pull rod is for the starter. His mother watched him climb up on the lo-boy yesterday and sit on the seat. She didn't seem as impressed as the rest of us were.

She didn't seem as impressed as the rest of us were.

And I thought women were the sensible ones :!: So much for that 8)

I was just wondering if your son and grandson use your cub homing machine or if they each have their own?

That is a great pic.
Sounds like grandpa will have to keep his cub locked up shortly.
I don't know who takes your pics. but they are always very good & clear.
So keep them coming.

Dale - I give credit to the camera. It's a Canon G2. It was not cheap but the quality of the pictures it takes plus the great features it has makes it worth the money to me. I am trying to teach my wife how to frame a good shot and I think it's starting to work.

BD, that's an awesome photo.

Like you said, ain't it amazing how some people can't frame a shot? I've got a lot of pictures of myself with the feet cut off, or the top of my head, or where I'm a little dot in an expansive picture, etc...

I guess it's not as easy as it seems.

didn't recognize BigDog in the shades :!:

:idea: maybe the avatar needs a pair :!: :wink: :wink:

BD . be sure to leave those cubs in neutral when you park them. it's only a matter of time till your grandson fires one up. then at least it won't be raisin' havoc trying to break the barn door down. or hurting the little guy.

Hey BD, great picture!

What model is the riding mower. I just picked up a model 1262.
A wintertime project to get ready for next year.

See ya next week. Save me a spot. :{_}:

Art - absolutely! My cubs are always parked in neutral. I have developed the "shake hands with the gear shift before starting" habit, but I know others have not so I always leave them that way and I am teaching both of them to do that. Mikey cannot get into the barn without adult help. But, I don't know how much longer I will be able to say that. Thanks for your concern though.

Matter of time...

You knew it was only a matter of time, right?
