Friday Feature: Nancy and Ronald Reagan Not Riding a Tiger

Here on the east coast things have started heating up… could it be true? Is summer on the way?

In honor of the shifting seasons, here are the Reagans doing what many of us are starting to do this time of year (though not quite in the way we normally do it): mowing the grass. The mower was an anniversary present. 

Stay tuned! Every Friday we'll highlight an interesting item from presidential history.


Nice photo-op. Says quite a bit. All show. It would take a month of Sundays to mow just the visable grass using a 16-20 hp lawn with a 46 in. cutting deck like the one on this tractor.
