Apparently not at Grafton ;-)

According to the email i just got it sounds like a LG plate tear out day..
.
" I got the grass cut to flying height, the runway is still soft in spots and kinda rough here and there from mower tire tracks. I would suggest that those of you that normally pit North of the pin rack, pit South of the shelter the ground is higher and much drier there. You can drive in along the tree line you will have to go through some water to do that it's OK best we can do. The mowers have been put into storage mode for the winter so this is the last cutting till next spring."

They would be saying "you are a guest of who?....you mean YTown Bob?"

I think you guys have less lawnmower man issues than we do

Your guy doesn't cut the place til people are there ......

Our guy is afraid of drowning while cutting ..... I am going to have to buy him a life preserver

That's where the term "never again" is born .... if it flies out it can at least have the decency to tear the whole tray out

Looks just about right! I usually throw in a full length Velcro battery "sock" around the battery as well. It truly makes it impossible for the battery to move!
