Her middle-aged granddaughter’s comments 100 years later:

Since Grandma didn’t write anything a hundred years ago today, I’m sharing an advertisement for the Clipper Lawn Mower.

I have lots of crab grass and dandelions in my yard—and I haven’t been able to successfully get rid of them. I definitely need a Clipper. . . wonder where I can find one.

    1. I can’t remember my family actually using a push mower to mow the lawn–but I can remember playing with an old one and cutting a little grass with it.

    1. I’m not sure if I came up with the same thing you did. Did you find a Tasmanian newspaper from the early 20th century called The Clipper? I also see that there is still a lawn mower with a similar name (Country Clipper).
