Lights, Action, Camera

 Have you ever watched a commercial being filmed?
I hadn't.

But it seems that anything being filmed doesn't look as glamorous 
when it's in production than
when it's been edited and ready to be shown.

Last week a fellow came to the door and said a commercial
riding lawnmower company in the area was looking for 
a location to film some promotion footage for a DVD promoting
their product.  Would we be interested in allowing them
to use our yard?  
The film crew and mower people arrive. The guy on the cell
is probably talking to Hollywood.

Our lawn and yard seemed to have all the characteristics that would
make a great backdrop for their mower.

Ed was very flattered.  He worked like a mad man
this past week making sure not a leaf or blade of grass 
was out of place.

A lot of helpers, cameras,  and  starts and stops.

 The lake made a nice backdrop.

 Here comes the mower.
But where's the sexy, handsome, leading man?

The good part is that they mowed the entire lawn so
Ed has a weeks reprieve plus

they gave Ed a lawn mower!
That was quite a deal.

Watch for us in a DVD soon!
Unless we're left on the cutting room floor.

Until Next Time-


  1. How awesome! Can I have your autograph? Can I borrow your cool lawn mower?

  2. We stand in awe! (And yeah, what about the super model that should be driving that thing?)
