Another Use for Your Lawnmower

In Britain, summer means lawn mower racing. An amazing fifty-six teams entered this race last weekend to win a twelve-hour race. They even drove through the night!

One enthusiatic gentleman predicted, "The bumps are really going to be the worst part of it." Matt Jones, the winner of the prestigious race, surprised me when he stated, " That's it! Never again!"

How about it? Is this something you would participate in?
  • Would you be the driver?
  • Part of the crew?
  • A spectator?

Well, I've got to say this is one that I would have no interest in, unless of course my lawn was mowed in the process!

I did get the Target card this last week. Sorry, my kids have some high fevers and I wasn't thinking to let you know.

My boys would love to do the lawn mower racing. I know my brothers and my husband would love to do it, too.

This would not be my cup of tea, but I do know several people who would love husband one of them. Fantastic.

Hello Smiling Sal; I would most defiantly be a driver. It looks like so much fun it would be hard to resist. Hope you have great week.
