Perhaps you remember my picture of a reel lawnmower shown above. Perhaps you also remember it got rejected by Rich (the host of this scavenger hunt) and his hand-picked arbiter of justice, Helen Waite. Who do they think they are?

I might sound bitter, but I’m not. Their rejection only made me more determined to find a legitimate, non-motorized, lawn mowing machine. Well, I did it.


Hi. My name is Greg and I ride my bike a lot. That is to say, I ride my bike almost every day. I go on long rides and short rides. Sunny rides, cloudy rides, and rainy rides. I like commuting, errand-running, day-tripping, overnighting, and touring on my bike. I ride on city streets, highways, gravel, single track, and snow with equal enthusiasm. Sometimes I ride fast and sometimes I ride slow. I try to keep my feet on the pedals at stop lights and I do not dismount when I hop up on a curb. I have a roadie bike, a mountain bike and a touring bike. I try to accept any challenge a bike ride can throw at me without complaint. But I don't like bugs.

    That must have been harder to find than a real reel lawnmower! Forget Helen Waite, l vote for it being accepted immediately.
    I even rang my ex-husband’s bell and asked if he had an old lawnmower. I thought he might since he isn’t a fan of technology. Alas, not even he has one.

    Helen Waite? Faye Kenews? I think it’s time for you and your little Fisher Price mower to deal with the punk rock bass player I used to date, Anna Mossity.
