    Gravely 48" zero turn took my mowing from 2 hours on a standard rider down to 35-40 minutes and it's fun as hell.

    My house. Putting it on the market tomorrow after owning for 10 years. Should be at least a 100% gain. Great buy.

    A vowel.
    Even though I didn't need it, I just wanted to see Vanna pirouette and do the sexy wrist flex.

    ...i just bought a 94 e420 mercedes last sunday for 500 dollars. car has 114k on it. needs a good (expensive) tune up. 2 caps and 2 rotors 179 dollars but this car has the famed m119 v8 motor in it. its been called bullet proof, the million mile motor, etc. i enjoy working on these cars but for labor intensive or super technical know how stuff i take it to a shop. i spend hours on end trying to learn everything i can about them.

    oh wait, the 1980 honda accord i bought for 20 dollars was a pretty good buy too. i drove it for 2 or 3 years and sold it for 500. wish i had never sold it, it was a wonderful little car.

    Well, the way I spend money on my kid . . . though, technically, I did not so much "buy" him as obligate myself to "spend" on him via ex-wife. But I digress.

    Right now my two favorite things are my pair of Grado PS500e studio headphones and iRig Pro audio/MIDI interface. That's how big a dork I am. :ubow: Seriously.

    Phew glad you said it. Now I too, can be inappropriate. :giggle: So yeah, my kids. VERY expensive, but worth every penny!

    You know, I have a theory on all of this. Want to hear it? No. Well, too bad; I'm gonna give it to you anyway:

    The ones who don't complain about their family are the ones you have to keep 'yer peeps on. The ones who do speak their minds are obviously "in the fray" and involved. :grad:

    Now, pardon me while I go fetch my father of the year award.

    A snowblower. What was once an impossible chore is now done in 1 hour. Second was a "dugout". How unbelievably convenient. 12 years later and have never gone back to the old way.
