Wouldn't the docking unit be out in the yard too.

True but sneaking around someone's property takes a different type of thief. I'm sure It could be bolted down too. I don't think like that. I live in a good neighborhood and don't lock any doors.

I am sure they could have some security to them, I was just being cute.

A beer looks good. To never cutting the grass again.

If you do have to cut the grass, feed it beer so it comes up half cut.

I got your answer right here! Solar powered, remote control. Sit on the porch and drive that guy while you soak up the suds. So easy even Neal can do it!

With that little panel it'll take a week to charge the battery for one hour of mowing.

Wuzzat you can be so silly sometimes. The big battery on the right drives the unit. The solar cells work all week to recharge the main battery. Besides, if it doesn't work, you just tell the wife and continue to drink ...
