Candy apple red, baby

The lawnmower I bought for $10 off of craigslist fell down and went boom. Or Greg ran over the sewer clean-out with it and bent the shaft. So we searched Consumer Reports and got this beauty. It's so red and shiny! I love.

It belched white smoke when we started it, so badly that we ran and got the fire extinguisher, just in case. It stopped after a couple of minutes, so I guess it was just being dramatic. For its next trick doves will fly out of the bag catch!


  1. Congrats, it's beautiful!! At least you know where your sewer clean-out is. Our house was built in 1920 and there is no sewer clean-out so last week we had our landlords and Mr. Rooter here for 4 days in a row trying to find a clog, which ended up being collapsed cast iron and clay pipes. Anyway, we now have a clean-out!! So exciting.

  2. Ohhh no, I'm glad you were a renter for that situation!
