Mowing the lawn.

So being in a wheelchair, pretty much sucks, fortunately I can run the zero turn riding lawn mower and not be 100% worthless. Of course I need help to get up into the seat, but then I’m good to go. I need help to get off too and must time mowing so someone will be there to help.

Yesterday was mow day, we’re not talking small yard by any means, and it’s anything but a nice shape for easy turns and long straight stretches. A couple of side hills thrown into the mix make it even more difficult to stay in the seat.

North East Side
South Side
Back Yard on the East Side
Front Yard on the West Side

It took me two and a half hours to finish in 85 degree heat, I was trash the final half hour. My legs were Gumby Guy like and worthless to keep me sitting upright, I was slouching sideways as I finished. I might have to stretch this out over two days in the future.

Until next time. Be someone’s hero.

  1. If you can run a zero-turn, you’re well ahead of a few guys I know. I’ve heard a funny story or two, told with a good bit of embarassment. Good for you!

  3. Nicely done! How long is your mowing season? It’s so hot here that even the weeds stopped popping up.

    1. May until September, not sure how much longer I will be able to mow as I’m still recovering from the last time.
