  •  My husband got a mower from his dad (3+ / 0-)

    after his dad passed away in 1994.  Being cheap and handy, hubby fixed the thing for years.  If he needed parts, he'd stop and pick up mowers that people were throwing out - driving anywhere with him was embarrassing.   By the time our sons reached their teens and took over mowing, the mower had parts from at least a dozen machines, but it still ran.  Our youngest son dubbed it 'Frankenmower'.  

    Finally, the boys bought hubby a new mower for Christmas a couple of years ago, but Frankenmower lives on.
