Should I be offended ?

Awhile back Greg determined that we needed a new riding lawn mower. He was right - the old one was falling apart. He had been checking out new mowers and I could tell by the glint in his eye that this was going to be a doozy and it was. I have been known to occasionally mow with the old one, so I thought I would be able to enjoy this new mower - WRONG! I have been told repeatedly that this was too much of a machine for me, it would go too fast, too quickly, and I would probably lose control and BAM! Obviously, the mower and I were an accident waiting to happen. So I graciously ceded to my husbands better judgement and have not ventured on this mower. Then.....the other day, Greg and Max were going to do some work outside. Pa runs in and shouts "Get the camera and come outside!" This is what I found...

Max, tooling down the driveway as big as your please....

executing perfect turns.....

maneuvering all sorts of angles....
and just enjoying his time on the mower.

Now, I ask you - Max can drive this machine and I can't! I guess we all know what my husband thinks of my driving skills - Hmmmm.....

(don't anyone get upset - there were no blades involved)

Boy, he drives that mower like it was made for him! haha I think you should hop on and take it for a spin! You never know, you might just conquer that new mower!

I think because you are a Mimi you gave Max a little to much driving credit. He is pretty darn pround of himself. He does like to tell everyone he can drive a tractor now!

I am sure your driving skills are fine. Now if memory serves me correctly Max's mother was the one who talked her dad into letting her and Paula pull your minivan into the garage in Yukon. I believe Mandy drove into the wall!
