    Default How many per acre is reasonable?

    Beers that is.
    I like mowing, I like working in the yard / barn / pastures. So does my neighbor. I tend 11 acres and after I get done I have about 3 beers or so. He tends 3 acres and before he gets finished he's into his 11th beer.
    I tend my 11 acres once a week or so. He tends his 3 every day.

    Man I wish I was retired like my neighbor.

    So what you're saying is that your neighbor likes to mix in a little mowing or plowing with his beer drinking??? Actually, he would probably be smart to not drink that much (or any at all really) while operating machinery.
    Nothing could be finer than riding my JD790 in South Carolina!!

    Nothing runs like a Deere, or smells like a John....

    Sounds like an neighborhood intervention is warranted. At the very least, take the blades off his mower. He'll probably just think the grass grew fast overnight or that he didn't mow at all.

    I think your neighbor is just looking to have something to do while he is drinking beer. Good thing he is not into chainsaws and stuff, but a mower can be bad too. I like the idea of taking his mower blades off. Just as a general rule I never drink until the engine is shut off. I will drink to that...
    It's the going that counts not the distance!

    Not all acres were created the same?
    What could possibly go wrong? *#^@*! I think it is time for a drive.

    Sounds more like al-hick!-coholism to me.

    Anyone want to guess how straight the lines are by beer #11?
