Ricky D gets a new toy...

Richard is lovin' his refurbished Allis Chalmers lawn tractor. He loves it so much, he bought it a new part. He found a composter on ebay and only paid $*** for it... wow... what a bargain? (I could have gotten a real nice new wine refrigerator with those $$$'s)... but I digress...

Anyway, in our front yard we have three 30-year old Sycamore trees with leaves as big as a 5-inch saucer. Every fall, Richard rakes the fallen leaves into several giant piles and then hopes the wind will come and blow them across the road instead of back into our fence. Sometimes it works... sometimes... not so much... Which brings me back to the fabulous buy he got on ebay...


He received his wonderful new pride and joy piece of equipment today via UPS, and promptly hooked it up to the front end of his refurbished Allis Chalmers lawn tractor. Then he put a big pile of leaves in to chop.

Wow, garden mulch!

Now I'm impressed... guess I'll be waiting a little longer on that wine fridge....






Just sippin' wine on the front porch this evenin' with my sweetie... down here in French Lique...

Good luck with that wine fridge!
I’ll bet Ricky finds other new toys first!

See you all soon around Thanksgiving

You are amazing. Love the blog.
Hope you get that wine fridge you want. Maybe Santa will bring it.
See you at Christmas, I hope.
Having a great time being here and spoiling my grandbaby.
