    “Envy” is the keyword in this case. And you are very lucky, if to say about lawns, Pee-wee. I will not even to tell you in detail how look the lawns where I am. (suffice it to say that snow and ice are still here). Therefore, my love for this thing will remain platonic for a long time. But it is truly Perfect Thing(with a capital letter). These outlines drive me crazy, ah, ah, ah …
    Thank you for the wonderful post, envy phagedenic my soul.

    There should be a whole line of these!

  • William Gould

    Sweet! The only change I would suggest is to add headlights, to go along with the tail lights and “hood” ornament.

  • Chuck Webster

    I would buy one for sure !! Well depending on price lol

  • Fabulous blog Paul! As a lover of all that’s Retro, this is a wonderful tribute to all things of this nature. Have a great day! 🦋

    That lawnmower is a “cut above” the rest Pee Wee! Thanks for the post!;)

  • Dear Paul,
    Love this blog, I share with you my day today:

    I take this moment as I was asked regarding my work as a CNA & what my experience has been though out the years, I was also asked what inspired me to move forward to my present career path.. make a change. My thoughts regarding the question above are as follows:

    As a CNA for over a decade now, I was young a recent HS Graduate going to local community college, in that realm I was inspired to go through a program that gave an option to volunteer, so I did at a local hospital palmetto general, I was wearing blue scrubs as my volunteer uniform & even though I didn’t deal with any patients I did however work in the office participating in making Art posters & raised awareness & fundraisers for different charities such as march of dimes & stop women from being battered association. A few years later in south Florida broward county I was at the lighthouse for training I was asked what my goals were. I reflected upon my volunteer work at the hospital how I enjoy interacting in the activities & my role in that.. I then answered an ad in the newspaper regarding a Residential Training Coordinator, caring for those who are developmentally disabled, it was there I worked & learned the inner workings of being an important role making a difference in the lives of others, as my passion grew I went to school obtained my CNA, my inspiration was a lot of those who in my life my father who always taught me that no matter your situation wether visually impaired there’s always someone who has it much worse than you, always have faith have perseverance, to not give up on yourself and achieve your goals.. school is important you learn & are educated and with that knowledge no one can take that away from you.. Thank you dad for that. My mother taught me to be compassionate & nuture those who are in need such as at work caring for these patients who were developmentally disabled..

    The way I see it is I’m caring about someone’s family member or in the case they don’t have family I’m their family especially on the holidays thanksgiving Christmas all the rest.. I have been honored & blessed, I then worked for ALFs (Assisted Living Facilities) group homes and nursing centers as they are called because of the level of medical care given to such patients..

    Mind you, things weren’t always great, I’ve had my share of stories of working with other CNAs who had the I’m better than you holy than thou competitive attitude only a Rank to them snobby selfish dealing with patients as robots their smug looks.. and the nights on the midnight shift 11pm-7am caring for patients who have bipolar disorder, hit you to the point you are on the floor, those who take their walkers and slam you into the wall, have ahold of your hand or hair to the point in a deathlock.. I’ve even had some patients tell me that Their best friend is Satan.. or think that the walls in their room are painted in blood of something of a demonic presence.. some need restraints others medicine.

    I’ve not able to give medicine but I’ve trained to know about restraints.

    I know these types of patients are mentally unstable some mental Ill. They are living in their mind, delusional. They live their ‘own reality’ not our reality, in the real world, their own world perhaps..

    Learning & caring for these types of patients had me doing something I enjoy, music & art therapy the usage of this helped me & them to calm, redirect them & the good impact it had on them. I observed within this their small but relitivily change in their minds along with medicines..

    I’ve done post mordem care on those patients who I took care of until they passed away, I found it to be a full circle of their life, as I cared for them in life & now in death, making them presentable to their families & for hospice and funeral home that took them to their final stage of their funeral.. it is within these sad moments that yes I was grief stricken but I asked the lord to take them to heaven where they would be free, knowing they aren’t suffering any longer. I was able to move forward again…

    My final position was at a place I cared for elderly, Alzheimer’s & dementia again engaging them in music & art therapy.. it was day shift my few years there I learned from my patients there hearing their war stories and to me they are walking history books with life experience I’ve not lived that realm of my life, they are my elders.. I respect them dearly as my grandparents have passed away at that point in my life.. they meant the world to me.. although they are gone from my life I take with me the memories..

    In this I think for me that working as a CNA it’s not about Rank, it’s about caring for those who are in need.. because anyone can move up the ranks but you rarely see the compassion the level of care the tears the laughter the moments shared with each patient I’m with.. yes a paycheck in order to survive be independent self sufficient, but also it’s a passion I know am closing this chapter in my life because at this rate I’m older now and have other ambitions I’ve wanted to pursue now, and my new endeavor as you have read I’ve elaborated on that subject in recent post.

    I know this chapter as a CNA is done, I take with me that education knowledge & memories of patients I’ve cared for.. that is a place I’ll cherish forever. Having said that I am looking forward to this new chapter in my life..

    That looks awesome! I wish I had that when I was cutting grass for my dad.

  • Where I am everything is still frozen and snowy so it’ll be a while before we bring out our lawn mowers but that is the coolest one I’ve ever seen!
