Seat of the Century

Mom and Dad are quite handy, particularly when it comes to renovating their yard and garden. When Sean and I visited Leduc for Mother's Day yesterday, we were surprised to see this new feature: an original horse-drawn mower seat, rescued from the Etsell farm many years ago by our Aunt Jean. Manufactured sometime in the 1920s, the seat and its supporting armature were quite dirty and rusted when Aunt Jean delivered it, but Mom and Dad painted it with John Deere colours and used lag bolts to mount it on a railroad tie. It's sturdy, comfy, and a colourful piece of family history.
