Happiness is spelled "accessories"

A few days ago Mike was blogging about using his riding mower and the attachments he could put on it. By the end of the discussion we had him with an umbrella, wireless connection and laptop holder, sipping gin from a sippy cup and blogging as he went. I suggested he might want to watch out for land mines around the flower beds, but could not quite describe the attachment he would need to adapt for his riding mower to do this properly.

Well, God Bless the Internet! A few minutes Googling found the webite of The Tank Museum in Britain, where they had an example of just what I was talking about.

This is the riding mower accessory for 2006. It's called a "flail" and look likes this-



[when in action the chains spin around at high speed. Takes care of land mines, as well as stones, sticks, lawn chairs, and most shrubberies.]

I so need this acceessory. It also looks as if it would be effective with nosey neighbors.

It would certainly give them something to talk about.

They could also stop wondering about what happened to sweet little 'Fluffy'...
