you mean like nostalgia?


I recall a plastic surgeon and his surgeon wife invited my parents for dinner back in the late 1970s, They lives in a triple story house in the most expensive part of Melbourne. In the car ride home my mother couldn't help but notice the wife would only give us one serving of roast chicken (no seconds), no-named non-branded icecream and she would re-use the same tea bag for herself and her husband and one bag for my mother and father. it means she grew up in a household where her parents struggled to make ends meet.

habits die hard, i suppose.


Indeed, I wouldn't be surprised if rich people have to put their lawnmowers under lock and key in case of neighbors :lol:

This guy literally took the lawn into his own hands.

Some folks might find it a relief to find their mower taken as it's seldom anyone's favourite chore...now they have an excuse.

It is a good excuse to not mow and you can put a sign up so people can’t complain.I haven’t mowed all my lawn yet, just the paths where I walk so I don’t step on something and don’t get soaked from the heavy dew.I think it looks beautiful with wildflowers and grasses.

I have a battery lawnmower, the best ever,I’d suggest an upgrade to one with a lithium battery.


Yes my Ryobi mower runs on a lithium battery, You can swap the battery to operate on any Ryobi electric garden tool.

Mine is Black and Decker and I have the weed eater, chainsaw and leaf blower that all use the same battery.One of the best investments ever.
The chainsaw is awesome.

Have we heard the "burglar's" side of the story, yet?

Maybe the lawn needed mowing and his intent was to anonymously do a good deed...and when the police showed up he panicked and ran, mistakenly dragging the mower along for a bit before he realized it and released it.

I dunno. Since the whole neighborhood apparently heard him mowing I'll guess it was a gas-powered mower.

So, rather than trespassing, maybe Disturbing the Peace?

well he couldn't have been disturbing too much of the peace as nobody noticed him sufficient for him to get caught.
