First and foremost, I hate weeds! We live on 10 acres, in the country, and the lawn mowing job takes about 6-8 hours. The weed mowing is constant with spraying, etc. Our outdoor range? The fricking weeds need ground sterilant, etc. My mrs is a meticulous mower! So now lets talk about the grey haired, older dude, riding the weed mower. The mrs makes me wear a bush hat, so that my ears, (I wear ear protection) that grow unwanted hairs, don’t get burned again. Sunglasses, that are safety glasses are worn. Always have my sig in an open carry position. Sometimes, while attacking the weeds, I’ll wear an “assault rifle”. Pun intended. We live in a gun friendly country neighborhood, with lots of shooters. Our flag is proudly flown near the county road. I don’t care how hot the job is or gets, but open carry around the property is the norm. Sometimes when the mrs is not watching, I might wear my blue bath robe, and be robe boy for a short time. Com’mon folks, have to give the passerby’s something to talk about. If I am mowing near our range, I will fire off some rounds while moving/mowing. A little extra training is valuable.
Please don’t tell the mrs about the robe frolic…we don’t farm, but I always say “I don’t get off the farm much!”
