I was working in the garden this afternoon when Papa Pea came to find me and announced he needed my help.
"What's up?" I asked.
He replied, "I got the Gravely stuck in the edge of the pond."
"How'd that happen?" I asked.
"I was watching a duck," he said.
Although this picture makes it look like the mower is tangled up with the electric fencing, it's not. Papa Pea had folded back that section of fence so he could get in by the pond to mow. (Looks to me like said duck is wondering what's going on himself.)
Off we went to fetch our old, faithful Samurai which Papa Pea chained up to the Gravely which did, indeed, have one wheel very much stuck in the mud.
Happily, it didn't take a lot to get it unstuck, and he was soon off and mowing again.
Seems to me he got stuck in much the same spot once last year, too. Wonder what he was watching then?
