Gas prices are in the news again as they creep higher and higher, but not everything has to be doom and gloom around the pumps. One day last summer, Harley and I pulled in at some country gas station to fuel up the Hogs, when we noticed this elderly gentleman filling up his vehicle as well.
FILL 'ER UP WITH REGULAR!
I thought it was pretty cool and unusual to see a riding lawn mower parked at the gas pump so I thought I'd snap a pic. As I walked over to the man to ask him permission, he started putting the nozzle back on it's handle when he noticed me. I said... "Darn, I was going to see if you would let me snap a picture of you filling up your mower." He was a pretty cool ol' dude as he plastered a big smile on his face and replied... "Well, here, I'm sure I need to top it off a little more." He was happy to pose for me while I took my shot.
He told us he lived about a quarter mile down the road and always rides his mower up to the station. Lawn mower man was very happy to explain to us that he was on his way to cut his widowed sister-in-law's lawn and anybody elses that needs cuttin'. Knees in the breeze ol' timer!
Have a nice Monday everybody!
