Remember the Free John Deere? April 28, 2010

Well, I mowed my yard with it today. All my husband had to do to get it running was: air up the tires, flush the old oil and gas and refill, clean the air filter, cleaned the carburator, and bought a new spark plug ($1.78 at Wal-Mart).

Not bad for a days work, eh? I eBay’ed the mower… they sell anywhere from $400-700! But, we’re keeping it 🙂 

Check out the hubby: now he has a mower to match his hat!

LOST: Tripod in a sewer

Date: 2010-02-08, 9:00PM EST

Last night, I dropped my tripod in a fast flowing sewer, and it got carried away into the shitty abyss. If you’re an Ashbridges Bay sewage treatment plant worker, and you find a black Manfrotto 752B ball head tripod, it’s mine, and I miss it.

Thanks for your time.
