Some Unfinished Business

I did not find as many things as I wanted in last month’s scavenger hunt challenges. Among other thingsI knew that I’d never find a reel mower because (1) what the heck is a reel mower? And (2) who uses those these days? When I looked up reel mower I reelized that Rich meant “push mower.” But he was the June Challenge Master so what he says goes.

Anyway, I was walking around the neighborhood the other day what did I see but a reel mower! So today I actually rode by there because them’s the rules. Can we have a ruling, Challenge Master?

It says: Pennsylvania Penna-Lawn. Original tires too.

I tried to get my trike in there but the shot turned out less arty than I meant.

And here we have umbrellas. With goats. And a US flag. In a yard.

    Grand Slam home run on the reel lawnmower — and loads of extra credit for the extra effort!
    Plus the goats, umbrella, flag, and even a pile of bricks! (sort of, but it counts).

      Why thank you, sir. And I didn’t mention the bricks because I was, uh, just testing you. 😉

    Great find Kathleen. I too was perplexed when I read “reel lawnmower”. I initially thought it meant a gas powered one that had to be pulled with a rope to get it started!! When mentioned it to a riding buddy she enlightened me that it was a push mower. Different jargon in different parts of the country.

      … if only people would say things our way, everyone would understand, right?

      Ha – I see what you did there.

    I don’t mean to brag, but I found a reel lawnmower too while on my ride through Amish Country. The thing is, I might not have stopped to take a picture of it had I not seen your reel lawnmower just a couple hours earlier. And that part about not meaning to brag — not true. I’m always willing to brag.

      You braggart. Now I wish I was more willing to tear apart our neighbor’s greenery to expose the entire thing.

      Oh well. Congrats on getting a legitimate mower finally.
