Lawnmower Man


Before the days when the valiant Shadow People warned unwary humans of the dangers of playing with power tools, children could be easily entertained by placing them atop a running lawnmower. Here, my mom demonstrates. This is sometime in 1971, in between our move from Flin Flon to Thompson; Dad was up in Thompson looking for a place for us to live, so Mom and I stayed with her parents near Virden, in southern Manitoba.

Back to the saga of our trip to Leaf Rapids soon...
